CNR 0.6 Beta

Custom Content Types ready for action!

Notice

This beta has been closed.  Check out Cornerstone’s official page to learn about the latest developments.

This beta version brings Content Types support to Cornerstone.  Content Types is very similar to WordPress’ own custom post types (in fact it is built upon it), but it adds an important piece to the puzzle– custom fields.

Simply put, different types of content will often have ancillary content that also needs to be captured.  Events have start & end times, recipes have ingredients, films have actors, etc.  The secondary data is often essential to give meaning to the content item as a whole.

Start using Cornerstone now!
