I want to run simple PhP codes on my webpages through the Cornerstone editor. I first attempted to use the Raw Text Element, but discovered it did not allow for PhP. I have read https://community.theme.co/kb/cornerstone-custom-elements/ and have tried to make an element that allows me to put my php in a textarea and have it run on the page; however, I have had no success. This really is a simple feature for such a wonderful theme, so I am disappointed that there is no easy way to use PhP on an X Theme website. Please, provide me with some more guidance on how to get PhP running on my webpages though a custom cornerstone element and also implement this basic functionality into the theme.

Sorry, php code is not allowed in cornerstone elements.
You can create scripts and convert it to shortcodes and use it inside cornerstone.
Hope that helps.April 9, 2017 at 1:23 pm #1429253
This is a major headache for the site I am trying to build.
In regular WordPress pages, without CS, the plugin Insert_PHP works to execute php code between the placeholders [insert_php] and [/insert_php]. Very convenient. Is there no way I can make this work within CS?April 9, 2017 at 8:40 pm #1429283
I tried and seems to be working on my installation. It could be related to something else, like configuration or security that doesn’t allow PHP execution since it could be a source of an attack. Would you mind providing us with login credentials so we can take a closer look? To do this, you can make a post with the following info:
