I’m new to X Theme and Cornerstone, and after a few days of use, I’m still rather frustrated with my slow progress.
I’m familiar with coding sites, but struggling to start with even the basics using this UX.
I’ve set up a demo site and installed the Gym demo content. I usually find that’s a very quick way of learning how to use a WP theme, by looking at a demo site and seeing how it’s built.
However, after setting up the demo site, and looking at elements, on the homepage for instance, I’m still struggling to recreate elements from this demo site on my live site.
For instance, the ‘Classic Creative CTA’ element on the gym site with the parallax image background. Even after inspecting this in the demo site, I do not know how to recreate this on my site.
- If this is not the best way to learn Theme X and Cornerstone, what is? Unsure where to start.
- As an example, please explain how to recreate the below ‘Classic Creative CTA’ element:
Unsure how to recreate this element on my site. How do I create the parallax element? And the CTA with the transparent background? Seems like a basic thing, but my content is quite different:
The demo site seems to have completely different settings to my live site, so there are some basics that I am clearly missing completely.
On the demo site, when I click on the Column or Row level, the ‘Classic Element’ settings are visible, but not in my site. I get a different set of options. even though I’ve added the ‘Classic Creative CTA’ element.
- Are there any instructions anywhere that describes how to recreate any of your demo sites? As it’s not apparent how to build a demo theme from simply looking at the demo theme, that would be extremely useful!
I originally included several more screenshots to explain the above in more detail, but unable to add more than one image as a New user?
