Cornerstone is – in my humble opinion – the best WordPress Page Builder I have used. You can do so many more things than just put some text, pictures, and links. With the help of sections, rows, and columns you can build interesting, interactive sites that are mobile friendly and ready for prime time.
In this video, I will give you an overview of how to get WordPress setup to use a static page as a front page. We’ll set up a Blog page additionally to have all the posts on one page as well. And I will give an overview of how to use Cornerstone which is the amazing Page builder built by the Theme.co team and comes free with each X Theme installation.
Let’s get started.
