The S5 Image Fader v3 brings a nice new list of features to our old image fader module. The new version runs off of mootools and allows you to use an unlimited number of images to rotate through. You simply select a directory on your server to pull images from and the module will pull and display all the images from that directory! You can choose from fade in/out, zoom/pan and slide for the transition effects between images. We still included the legacy option running of S5 Effects if you need to run the older version of this module.
1. First off you'll need to get your images uploaded to a directory on your server. In the admin of the module you'll need to put relative path to your images. For example if you have your images stored here: http://www.myserver.com/images/ then the relative path would just be "images" in the admin of the module.
2. Next is naming your images. The only part that matters for this module is that right before your image extension ( .jpg, .gif, .png) is that you include an "m" for main image. If you are using thumbnails you'll need to include "mt" for main thumbnail.
3. The next thing to note is that your images will be pulled no matter what you include before the "m" and "mt" so you could name them: testm.jpg and testmt.jpg for the first image and checkitm.jpg and checkitmt.jpg for the second image and the fader will pull them. This is ok if you don't need an ordering to your images but if you do then name them as follows:
And so on for the first ten, now the next ten you must prefix with 1 so that all the next ten stay in the number 1 set. The first number depicts the set and the second number is the image in that set, for exmple:

The S5 Tab show module has been edited to match the layout of this design. This module can be demoed on the homepage of this design.
It holds up to 10 actual module positions so you can publish any of your favorite modules to one of the slides and keep your site clean and consolidated while giving it some eye candy. So simply add the modules positions as described below, publish the s5 tab show module and then start publishing modules to the positions in the tab show (s5_tab1, s5_tab2, etc)
The following is a quick list of features that are included with the module:
