I'm struggling to configure s5-image-and-content-fader. Please help.

Where do I upload the images and messages. Say I want to have 3 images and 3 messages, all centered.

I've figured out how to publish 1 by using the code on Top Row 1.1. Is this the right box for main images?

The fader is a widget; all configuration is done through the admin side of the widget on the "Appearance -> Widgets" page of WP admin.

The "Basic Options" area of the widget configuration will allow you to configure the way the widget behaves and the general appearance (overall size, animations, transition time, etc.). 
The "Text/HTML" area is where you can enter the titles and text of each slide; it fully supports HTML formatting, which you'll need if you want to do any custom formatting (such as centering the text, changing the font, or any custom layout). 
The "Image Options" area is where you tell the fader what images to use, and if you want to link somewhere when a user clicks on each image.  The widget does not currently have an uploader in the options; to add an image, just enter the URL of where that image is located online. 

You can upload images through FTP, the WP media manager, or any other method you choose; the fader just needs the URL for the image once you've put it somewhere that's accessible online.

The only real rule for image size is that all the images should be the same size.  The widget options allow you to set the height & width you want, and if you have responsive mode enabled, the widget size will scale with the site width.

As for the other questions - it appears that your site is locked down, so I can't see what's happening to make any suggestions.

Hi Tristan Rineer:

Sent you PW by DM. You should have password in your inbox.

1) Image > So you suggest to have uniform sized images. Great. Will try that.
2) How to replicate the copy/font style on homepage slides? On Slide #1, I have VERY large text, while on slide #2 and #3, very small fonts.
3) What would be the best way to add Social Icons on top right on Custom_1? Could not figure it out.

Thanks.

It looks like you figured out the slide text; was there anything else you were having trouble with as far as the slide content goes?

Most of the demos have social icons placed using widgets in a specific area; it looks like you've figured that out already, but if you're still having trouble with it, the best way to figure out the way to do anything on a specific theme is to check how it's done in the shaper.
