Welcome to Cornerstone! If you’re reading through these articles we assume that you’ve already seen and/or purchased the plugin and are ready to begin using it, but for those who may be reading about Cornerstone for the first time here, allow us to take a moment and fill you in on our labor of love for the past many months. At its core, Cornerstone is a collection of shortcodes which can be utilized to build out complex page layouts with near infinite customizability. Beyond that though, it’s much, much more. Cornerstone takes these integrated shortcodes and provides alongside them a simple, streamlined, drag and drop frontend interface, allowing users of all experience levels to take full control of their page layouts! If you’re unfamiliar with tools like this, don’t worry as we’ll go into more detail on this moving forward. If you have a bit of experience in these areas already, the key thing to be aware of here is that the frontend editing of tool of Cornerstone is completely uncoupled from your site’s styles and functionality, meaning that your frontend load times will remain as quick and snappy as ever and won’t ever be hindered by any functionality in the build tool itself.
