How do IO edit this html to change this to an internal link/page, with an article?  

<span class="center">

A premiere community association of 31 luxury condominiums, located on beautiful Sand Key Beach, Clearwater, Florida.  


<a href="#s5_bottom_row1_area1" class="readon">Read more[/url]

currently directs to:  http://bellarosacondominium.com/#s5_bottom_row1_area1

I would have thought that this nodule back end would be easier to simple assign and internal link, and page for the "read more"?

also...  I see that the back end interface is mostly custom html.  Do you have a group of templates that are more point and click for customization?  As much as I love this template, with as much customization as I have to do, to get to the desired look and function, the time this will take at this pace may be prohibitive? I need "easy" to configure.

Hello,

There are 2 modes for this module. The custom HTML style and the Joomla article method. If you use the Joomla article method you can set the module to pull from Joomla article categories. It will then dynamically output the read more button, the image you set as the article intro image, the description and the title. Perhaps try using the article method?

Let me know if you still want help with adding in the code for the custom HTML method.

"Joomla article method".  Maybe I should know what you mean.  But Can you explain?  I understand how to link a menu item to an article for example, but how do I link the image "read more" or the html text "read more" to an internal link to an article?  This should be simple right?  

so tried hard in thew adm in to see how to set this module to joomla article method, and just don't see that option, help?  where do I do this, prefer that method.  Thankjs.

in the admin, modules, I have no updates needed.

But I see I have
S5 Image and Content Fader v3

searching shape 5 site, joomla club modules, I dont see this available, in version "4", as you said.  How do I upgrade this, because I do  not see the article method option button on my screen to set that mode.

Installed the new module v4, but showing my lack of joomla knowledge, Don't want to waste the time invested in creating and placing the images for the front page slider, and text.  I just want the read more button to link to an article, I will take you up on your offer to help link and article to the html method. 

I have created articles (4) to link to, in category front page slider.  I need to add one more slide/photo and link.  Could you explain how to link the html code to an article please?  Or I can give you the access info for you to do this?

Thanks.

Ok so for the HTML method we have all the code listed here:
http://www.shape5.com/demo/charlestown/index.php/tutorials-menu-48/custom-code-for-this-design

You will see that the hyperlink is shown as below for the read more button:

Code:
<a href="#s5_bottom_row1_area1" class="readon">Read more</a>

All you need to do is put in a link and it'll then work. For example to send it to Google:

Code:
<a href="www.google.com" class="readon">Read more</a>
