@joeworkman Awesome job, updating products and coming up with new features is not the easiest thing in the world. Mad respect. :+1:

That’s awesome. Thinking I should maybe switch the Realmac Blog over to this. Like it a lot!

Guys, let’s keep the discussion on topic, the great new blogging tools of Total CMS. You can start a new thread and discuss what you want, but please do not go off topic. It just derails this announcement for the developer.
Thanks

During the Friday hangouts last week, I built a new layout for blog that is pretty cool. It does require that you have my Match Height stack though… I call it Quadrants: http://sandbox.joeworkman.net/page-6/
