how may i use other plugins and shortcodes with cornerstone? i tried but couldn’t :crying: :crying: :crying:

THEMECO

Hi There,

Cornerstone has it’s own Elements (Shortcodes), but we are in the process of mapping in options for people to include their own Elements. With regards to 3rd party integrations, that will be happening over time. With the initial release, we included a Contact Form 7 element, and are in the process of integrating with others as well.

If you need anything further, a member of our development team will be happy to assist in our member forum. There is also a Cornerstone thread in the forum for more conversational dialogue about the tool, so definitely chime in there as we want to involve the community in the future development :)

Cheers!

Maybe I’m missing something? Played a little more with Cornerstone today. How do you change the colors of elements?

For example, how do you change the color of the accordions? How do you change the color of a button? How do you change the color of the Callout Title text? The color of the callout button? The color of the Icon list item text? The color of the icons in the Icon Lists? The color of icons in the Social Sharing? The button colors for the pricing tables?

I’m using a darker background, so I can’t even see any of the elements and don’t have the option to change the color?

Am I missing something? Or is there no visual way to change the color of common elements?

One of our developers would be happy to assist with that in our forum. Global styling is set in the Customizer (all button colors), and you would have to add custom styling to individual buttons if you wanted them differently. In the future, Cornerstone will allow you to have more granular control over individual elements like that.

We’ll see you in the forums should you need anything further.

Gotchya. I’ll just wait until that function is added to use X in client projects. Having to individually style all elements that aren’t the same as your global setting makes too much work. Especially when that means hundreds of CSS style adjustments. I’ll stick w/ themes that offer that function.

Hope you add that soon. Once you add some basic function to Cornerstone, it will be a game-changer. But right now, it’s a little too limited.

THEMECO

There is already a great deal of granular control offered in Cornerstone and more will be given over time as the dust settles from the 1.0 launch of the tool.

Cheers!

Pre-purchase questions

1. If I would rather use Visual composer as a page builder, how would that effect this theme? 1a. And if I can, would I be able to remove the current pagebuilder files without hurting the theme? Just because I wouldn’t mind taking out elements that aren’t needed on it. 3. Is each of the 4 different themes (Integrity,Renew, Icon and Ethos) going to be in my finished theme once I decide on how I want my layout to be, which one of the four I end up using, going to still be a part of the finished theme? Again, I just prefer to not have elements stored on the server that never get used.

Thank you!

Mark

Hi Mark,

1) Customers are welcome to use 3rd party plugins such as VC within X if they wish. It can run concurrently with our own builder although if you are using X, our Cornerstone builder is definitely recommended.

1A) Cornerstone is required to use within X as it includes our standard Shortcodes as well. You can use the page builder or just the Shortcodes, however once you see Cornerstone in action, you’ll definitely want to use it for your page building efforts. Cornerstone is a very learn and optimized tool within X.

3) Yes, all four Stacks are included in X, and you simply pick that in the beginning of setting up your site then refine from there. At any point you can switch Stacks to completely change the look/feel of your design. These are again highly optimized within X so that only the resources that are being used are effecting server resources.

Let us know if you need anything further!

Wow! That’s gotta be the fastest reply I’ve ever gotten from a developer here.

I ask about the VC page builder vs yours because I’ve used other ones and they just seriously fall short of available features. Nothing even close to VC. So, I just wanted your honest opinion on this right now so I don’t have to be upset later. And I’m asking because since I own VC, if I found yours wasn’t cutting it, then I could just easily change to VC. If that would make for theme conflicts or cause me any other unpleasant issues, then I want to know before hand.

Thanks again!

THEMECO

Our pleasure, Mark…we all certainly appreciate fast and courteous responses from other companies so hope to do the same in return for ours!

Many customers use VC within X prior to our release of Cornerstone, so using that would be an option; however, I believe once you see Cornerstone in action you’ll see why so many people are so excited about this new tool.

Cheers!

I bought the theme last year. How do I get access to Cornerstone?

THEMECO

Hi There,

Simply download the latest version from your ThemeForest download page (it includes Cornerstone).

Cheers!

I’m having way too many issues with your theme.

Cornerstone is not working. the field for text or even anything else are not coming up at all. i have to disable css styles in order to right in text in on text fields, grid boxes, etc.

I am not reverting back to the older version of X-theme to use visual composser, because i have wasted too much time on this.

Also the light box images are not opening up in a light box. They are opening up on another page, which is not what i would like.

please advise on all things above.

THEMECO

Hi There,

One of our developers would be happy to assist in the forum as they will need to take a look at your site to see what is going on.

If you haven’t registered for access yet, you may do so here.

Cheers!

Default-user

i figured out the lightbox, but only after downgrading the theme to an older version and using visual composer to redesign the entire page. I personally don’t thing its worth it to go into for you to check because i had to do away with cornerstone.

Sorry!

but because of this I will not be using the theme for anything else. In fact the other site that i have your theme on that i know will grow is going one be switch to another them not not update because of this situation.

I am usually very pleased with themes on here, but not with this one.

THEMECO

Offer still stands if you need any assistance, and keep in mind VC will continue to be updated and able to be used within X, so you are able to continue on with that workflow if that is how you began building your site.

Cheers!
