Having just added a metric ton of great goodness to Carbonmade, we thought it of utmost importance to beef up our Help site. Now you can quickly search for answers, scan topics by category, or check out our handy FAQs. We've even added looping videos so you can follow along step by step. And of course, our support wizards are always standing by to bippity-boppity-boo. If you're not finding what you need, they'll get you sorted in a jiff!
Wouldn't it be nice if you could make sweeping, grandiose, across the board changes with the click of a button? Well, that's what we're letting you do with our shiny new Default Project editor. Switch all your projects from List to Flipbook view or instantly change the placement of your captions without going project by project. We'll be adding lots more to this area so stay tuned!
Don't worry about being "all thumbs" when it comes to making your homepage look picture perfect. We've radically improved the thumbnail uploading, editing and cropping process. Now you can quickly select your image, hit the "edit thumb" button and use our fancy pants slider to zoom in on just the right spot. You can even drag it around until you hit absolute pixel perfection. Your thumbs update auto-magically so you can marvel at how pretty it looks or keep on adjusting like a maniac. Go nuts!
Based on your feedback, we tinkered and tailored the Design section to make it clearer and easier to use. It's your one-stop shop for choosing a theme and futzing with all of its glorious style, mood and design options.

Plus, this overhaul will make it easier for us to release new themes with all sorts of nifty features. High fives and stage dives!

You don't always have to shout your successes from the rooftops, but it helps to have a place to list 'em all out. We've added two new copy blocks to the About section for Awards and Exhibitions.

Celebrate good times, come on!
