Plugin / Global Blocks for Cornerstone

Michael Bourne



Global Blocks for Cornerstone adds a global content block functionality to the Cornerstone and Pro Theme page builders.
Using a CPT, you will be able to create any content you want in Cornerstone, save it, and use the Global Block custom element to add that content block to any post or page.

Plugin Features

  • Create a content block once and reuse it on multiple pages.
  • Edit that block in one location and the changed will be reflected site-wide.
  • Use either Cornerstone or the basic editor to create your content in the custom post type.
  • Use any shortcodes you desire, all content will be filtered properly before output.
  • Supports Cornerstone custom CSS and JS in the Global Block.
  • Built in shortcode for using the Global Block outside of Cornerstone via [global_block block=”123″] where 123 is the ID of the global block template you want to use
  • WPML translation support
  • Front End Support for V2 Elements

Please note, this plugin requires the Cornerstone Page Builder (or the Pro Theme by Themeco) to be installed and active. Cornerstone on CodeCanyon

V2 Elements: Version 1.4 of Global Blocks introduces partial support for V2.

How To: Convert all your Global Blocks into the new template manager: In your admin settings menu, click the new global blocks entry. On the next page, check the confirmation box and hit submit. This is a one way street, so be sure to make a backup first.

Themeco has now adopted this plugin functionality and has implemented it into Pro versions 2+ and X versions 6+. You may continue to use my Global Blocks plugin if you have not yet upgraded your Themeco products.

Plugin Removal

This plugin will delete all Global Blocks that you have created upon uninstallation. If you would like to keep them, simply deactivate the plugin instead.
