Aura Cards (Cloud)

The Aura Cards macro allows you to create content boxes (cards) that are automatically organized by columns and rows to display your content in a more attractive, easy to read, and organized way.

Each card's content, link, color, and icon can be customized independently with Aura's powerful and intuitive configuration dialog. Even inexperienced users can create beautiful Cards and easily customize those to suit their needs.
