Steel

Description

Steel adds certain capabilities through several optional modules. We are continuing to add modules, so stay tuned.

Bootstrap

Bootstrap 3 is included with Steel, and comes alive with shortcodes.

Broadcast

Create audio or video series to display on website or publish on podcast feed.

Quotes

Display a random quote (or testimonial) in the sidebar with our random quote widget. We are looking at embedding random quotes within a post or page in our next update.

Slides

Create and display media slideshows using Bootstrap’s Carousel plugin.

Teams

Create profiles for board of directors, staff members, etc. and display them on a nice summary page.

Future Modules

  • Aliases – Have multiple “pretty permalinks” point to the same post or page, or create a “pretty permalink” for an offsite link.
  • Events – Add an events calendar to your WordPress site
  • Styles – This module will replace the need for shortcodes by adding buttons and styles to TinyMCE.

Suggestions for other modules? Let us know via the Support tab.
