Steel brings the power of Matchstix to a simple user interface, making any site’s impact spread like wildfire. No programming required.

== 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.

= Cards =
Create cards to be displayed by set, deck, or individually in multiple ways. Replaces previous Slides module. A slide is now card, and a slideshow is now a deck. Uses Bootstrap's Carousel, and will use Bootstrap 4's new cards component.

= 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.

= 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.
