But if you check now the theme is back online on the WordPress repository.

Why was Astra Theme Suspended?

Astra theme violated the guidelines set by the WordPress Team regarding putting affiliate links in the theme. WordPress review team sent them notification regarding the removal which they neglected. According to Astra they only shared the affiliate links through the plugins and not directly.

Rules regarding affiliate links were set down about a year and a half ago. Developers are not allowed to put affiliate links in the themes they create.

Now the Astra theme is back in business, they reviewed and resubmitted the code with the changes. You can see the theme is now available in the WordPress repository.
