Hi Jai,

Thanks for writing in! Most basic plugin that is required to function X theme is the Cornerstone plugin. Following other plugins also may require, according to your current setup.

  • Revolution Slider plugin, if you have a slider on your site.
  • Contact form 7, if you want to setup contact us page.
  • Email forms extension, if you want to setup opt-in.

You can activate/deactivate any other plugin according your requirement.

t thank you

please advise, how comes there are no demo images anywhere?

Hi Jai,

It’s a standard demo which only contains some placeholder, you’ll have to fill them to complete the demo. It’s meant to be a skeleton to give the user a starting point while still clean and minimal. If you wish a demo that has complete slider, content, and images then I recommend importing the expanded demos.
