I have been working with WordPress for 8 years but this is the first time I've upgraded to a Pro theme because Aseria Lite impressed me so much with its many features.
After playing with Lite for half a day, I decided to upgrade and am even more impressed. The theme is gorgeous, especially the featured page headers, which is what I primarily upgraded for.
The added shortcodes (Pro version) are great if you like shortcodes (I think there are 29). I've implemented the tab shortcode in my template and it looks really nice.
I love playing with the font choices, but there are so many that I've only tried out a few. The blog layout options are also fun to play with and great for showing off photos.
This is one of the most complicated themes I've used and I encountered a few glitches in my first week (perhaps because I am doing customizations through a child theme and using a ton of Advanced Custom Fields) and the developer has responded quickly and willingly to my emails, sometimes at 1 AM his time.
There is a support forum for the Lite version as well as a private forum for Pro users that is full of solutions.
All in all, this is a great theme. You can do a lot with the Lite version, but the Pro version is definitely worth the upgrade.
I needed some extra aspects so I upgraded to the PRO version of this theme and I CAN NOT express to you the level of outstanding support that Towfiq provides over on his theme forums.
I've worked with more than 2 dozen different theme developers and nobody has ever come close to being as knowledgeable, helpful or FAST in their responses.
*As a plus the theme is coded and annotated beautifully too, which is a huge help if you have to dig around in the back-end looking to modify code!
Love the themes! Originally started on Theron Lite, purchased the Pro because my site looked AMAZING with the Lite and I knew full potential was out there. Very clean, and super easy to style into your business branding. Been over a year of enjoying the theme and now I'm upgrading to Asteria Pro. I thought I was set with Theron but seeing Asteria Lite means it's time to get that full potential again!!! It seems more streamlined with social media output, and just the tweaks here and there make for a squeaky clean client interaction. Definitely recommend for a small business who doesn't want to sacrifice style for convenience :)

It is really good
Definitely worth considering the "premium" themes. If you don't believe me, go and try out this free one.
Theme lokks great!
The support on this theme is GREAT! And that is what really matters.
And it's really pretty as well, with lots of features and options. I highly recommend it.
The Theme is excellent... A few issues on the way but the support was great !
I LOVE Asteria Lite. Thank God for people who make such beautiful themes, and make free versions available to the public. I've spent hours over months trying to find a theme I liked, and was never satisfied til I saw this one. I've never made a website before, and don't know programming. It's the only theme I've been able to find that was exactly what I wanted--so beautiful, so simple (eliminates unnecessary clutter), so user-friendly (for someone inexperienced like me), so professional looking, and with so many personal options (absolutely LOVE details like the long list of icons available to choose from for the blocks, and the welcome line at the bottom). Amazing work, Towfiq I.!!! Keep up the great job!!
This theme is great!! I am in love!! It is fast and so pretty! Also, the support is amazing! Thank you, Towfiq! ;)
