Tutorial: Recreating Pastebin’s simple tip

We sometimes get questions for more content about using the product and some quick start tutorials.

This simple example shows how you can combine an images and text content into a simple tip. Its based on a simple, no nonsense example from one of the web’s busiest sites: Pastebin and its got a clear Call-to-Action presented in a playful way.

The tutorial is interesting because it shows what Contextual can and can’t do with a few elements.

Naturally we could have created an exact copy using our HTML templates, but the goal here was speed and simplicity rather than technique.

I realized afterwards, I could have the tutorial use the basic blank tip template and built up from there – so that might have been even faster!
