All the other pages are loading fine except for the home page, #confused

Updated to X 8.0.7
Php 7.4
cornerstone 5.0.7
Have deleted and re added and tried all sorts

Any ideas greatly appreciated

Hello @stevewild,

Thanks for writing to us.

It would be best if you can delete and reinstall the Cornerstone plugin. I would also suggest you update your X theme and Cornerstone page builder to 8.0.8 & 5.0.8 version respectively.

If it doesn’t work for you, please share your details in a secure note. Please provide the following details

  • WordPress Login URL
  • Admin level username and password
  • FTP

You can find the Secure Note button at the bottom of your posts


Thanks @stevewild! I’ve installed development versions of X and Cornerstone that include a fix for this issue. You can safely update via automatic updates when the next point release is available.
