The X WordPress theme was launched in December 2013. The theme was one of the first WordPress themes to truly earn the tag “multipurpose WordPress theme”. The X WordPress theme was an instant success. Tt helped users, especially non-coders, design unique websites and ThemeCo, the developers of the X theme were able to hit $1 million in revenue in just six months, breaking existing ThemeForest records and setting new records in the process.
Fast forward to 2015, some other theme developers and companies have managed to replicate the brilliant model of the X Theme, most notably, ElegantThemes. ElegantThemes have found similar success with their theme Divi, which was also launched in December 2013. X Theme also faced indirect competition from the popularity of page builders such as the Visual Composer. ThemeCo do not copy, they prefer to build their own solutions from the ground up. They added an extensions library in version 3.0 and the much expected 4.0 update came with a brand new page builder, Cornerstone.
Cornerstone is a collection of shortcodes presented in the form of a solid front end page builder. It can be activated in the extension library of the X Theme, versions 4.0 and above. I have personally tested the new update and it is awesome. Cornerstone is a simple to use page builder which helps you build awesome pages.
Cornerstone replaces X-shortcodes and in line with best practices, it is built as a standalone plugin. ThemeCo does not force Cornerstone on X theme users. You can decide to continue using Visual composer and everything will continue to work just fine.
Version 4.0 of the X Theme also offers improvements in plugin support. Latest versions of BuddyPress, bbPress, WooCommerce, Visual Composer, and Revolution Slider are well integrated into the theme to provide a seamless experience when any of these extensions are activated.
Version 4.0 makes the X Theme even more user-friendly, faster, and more customizable. For existing users, it is available with an existing active Theme X regular license. If you yet to purchase the X theme, it is a theme that I cannot recommend enough, so go ahead and buy the theme. It is available on ThemeForest and I assure you, with ThemeCo, you will be treated like the new born child of a long barren woman, you will be adored and treated with a delicate touch. They might even spoil you!
