Phantom content

Hi, I’m working on and am finding it very frustrating. As I go from page to page, the interface seems to change, even though I’m trying to do the exact same thing.

Of particualar concern right not is phantom stuff showing up within work I’ve put together. Granted, I’m modifying a page that came pre-loaded with content, but shouldn’t I be able to edit it completely?

Please take a look at, in the “Donations via Check section you will see
"YOU SHOULD KNOW” "Giving doesn’t have to be a difficult thing.” And there’s an underline.

Yet, when I try to edit that out, it’s no where to be found.

Same thing with where it says "GLOBAL CHAMPIONS” "We work to change the lives of those who need it most.” with an underline. Where’d it come from, and how can I get rid of it, or edit it?

Hi Tomrogers,

Thank you for writing in, that line is a hardcoded <hr class="accent-2"> tag inside of that headline element.

And it is styled with a custom CSS inside the Theme Options > CSS, the CSS code of that wrote like this:

.h-custom-headline hr.accent-2 {
    background-color: #f5a623;
.h-custom-headline.cs-ta-center hr {
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
.h-custom-headline hr {
    width: 50%;
    height: 2px;
    max-width: 180px;
    margin: 1em 0 0;
    font-size: 0.375em;

Hope this helps,

Yes, I can see the CSS in Theme Options > CSS. But the when you look at the editing interface for that section of each page, there is nothing related to those headlines, nor is there any entry for CSS ID, Class or Style.

Here’s a screenshot for the donations page interface -

Here’s a screenshot for the about us page interface -

I’ll provide my username and login via a private message so you can take a closer look.

Hi Tom,

Our apologies for the confusion. This is actually a known bug for the Classic Custom Headline element where if you put an empty HTML such as <hr>, <br> to the headline text, the entire headline content will not show up in Cornerstone.

For the meantime, please load Cornerstone in Skeleton mode then you should be able to see the classic headline elements that are not appearing in the Cornerstone previous. Kindly remove the <br> or <hr> codes in the content.

Thank you.

Thanks, that did the trick. I wish I could have found out about it easier.

Can you tell me how to make it so every screen provides the full palette of styling choices? I was editing a page and trying to do the same things as a different page, but the interface was different?

Hi Tom,

I am sorry but I am not entirely sure what you mean by interface is different. Can you provide us screenshots of instances where the interface is different.

Please note that there are two kinds of elements. Classic and V2 elements

The classic element doesn’t have much options in it and the the v2 elements has advanced options.
