I was wondering if there is a detailed tutorial available on setting up the Shape 5 Image and Content Fader. 

I used the Sports Nation sample data to clone a slider using our own images and text, but am unable to get it working properly.  I have loaded two images, two titles, two descriptions and two url locations for the images.  The following are the settings I have used:

Height 200 px
Width 920 px
Actual Size
Stretch to fit - no
jQuery
Open Gallery
Delay 9000
Opacity 70
Picture Carosel - enables
Navigation arrows - enabled
Slide Text - enables

The slider is presently not sliding, and is showing the title and description above the slide, not overlayed as per the Sports Nation demo.  Site is jeanlittman.net

Many thanks for your assistance

The theme you are using requires the mootools version of the Image and Content Fader.

The following post in the Wordpress FAQ will tell you how to revert to the older fader version:

Thanks again, the plugin re-load worked a treat!  Just one more quick question - I would like to increase the size of the font on the title (and perhaps the text too) that floats across the slider.  Is there a way to do this - I can't seem to find anything in the options.

Thanks for your assistance.

Firebug can show you where in the CSS is that controls those things; at that point you can just adjust as desired.
