Tell us what you are trying to do?
Starting a new project

Is there any documentation that you are following?
I have not used toolset for quite a while and when returning to your site I clicked on 'recommended themes' and you have not included 'toolset starter' and it is not included under 'toolset components'. I therefore assume that you would not recommend using this theme for a new project so the question is which theme you would recommend for a new, relatively advanced site with custom search and different looking post types with different post fields.
Looking forward to hearing from you / john

Hi John,

Thank you for contacting our support forum.

That is correct our Toolset Starter theme has been removed and deprecated. What I do recommend as simple starter theme is the Astra theme.



Thanks. Here is another question for you.
I just watched a video with Dario in which he created a custom search and the page was designed in Elementor - hidden link
What is the reason for using Elementor for the page design and not Toolset?
If you design your pages in Elementor and at a later stage, you want to update the layout of your (custom post type) pages - can you then just update the template OR do you have to change each and every page?
Best regards / john
