Testing the new tabs feature

The new tabbed content module just went live. It's really easy to use

Tab one has some text

Tab two also has some text

This text is after the tabs.

The code that generated those tabs looks like this:

[ tab this is tab one]
Tab one has some text
[ tab this is tab two]
Tab two also has some text
[ endtab]

(note take the space out between the [ and 'tab' to make it work.

Clip it, Clip it Real Good

CarnalNation 2.0 supports easy web clippings.  The new thumb token generates a clipping with a torn off bottom and a paperclip from any web url. For example:

[thumb Here is a clipping of the New York Times]

Will generate the captioned NY Times image shown below.

Advanced Options

You can specify a size and float the clipping left or right ...

[thumb right 300x450 This one is the SF chronicle, it's floated right and a custom size]

To float you just add 'left' or 'right' before the url and to set a size you specify widthxheight after the url and before the caption.  [Read more]
