This works just fine but for me it has one major issue. (I see this in a lot of themes as well.)
In order to set the sidebar for the page you have to go to appearance > astra options > sidebars. Then filter through four sets of options to get the sidebar where you want. For most people this is not intuitive. It’s time consuming and confusing.
Ideally, you should just go to the page you want to edit and select the sidebar you want on the page.
Like I said, I see a lot of themes use this non-linear way of setting things up. Problem is, you end up having to go five different places to change the settings and design of your page.
Astra already has a settings area on the page where you can choose the location of the sidebar (left, right, none). It would make sense to then have some check boxes below this to choose which sidebar you want to display on the page, instead of having to do it at appearance > astra options > sidebars.
I guess some people like having control over all their sidebars in one place. But it makes it very difficult and time consuming when you are trying to design a page.
You can tell this was designed by a developer. A design surely would have made it easier. (nothing personal to developers… 🙂
I would give this a two-star rating because of the illogical way it is implemented. I just don’t subscribe to this way of thinking. But since this is my personal preference and I realize some like having multiple control panels to design one page, then I guess I will give it another star.
