Astra Theme has added a one-click, LearnDash-ready website to their starter site library!
One of the best things about WordPress is the ecosystem of themes and plugins available. This also is what makes configuring a WordPress site so time-consuming.
Well, today I am happy to say that things have been made a bit easier!
We have teamed-up with the good folks behind Astra Theme, the WordPress theme touted for its high performance and loading speed. They have included a LearnDash-specific template in their starter-site library — and it looks great!

LearnDash users get this template… Free!
When you join LearnDash, you get immediate access to this beautiful, LearnDash-ready template. This means it literally will take you just a few clicks and you have a fully-functional LearnDash site, sample courses included!
Once the import is finished, you get…
