All modules are fully collapsible
What exactly is a collapsing module? It's quite simple, whenever a module is not published to a postion that position does not appear on the frontend of the template. Consider the example below:
This particular row has 6 module positions available to publish to. Let's say you only want to publish to 4 of these positions. The template will automatically collapse the modules you do not want to use and adjust the size of the modules accordingly:
If no modules are published to the row the entire row itself will not show. The best feature of this is every module can be published to its own unique pages so the layout of your site can change on every page!
Because there are so many module positions available in so many different areas, the number of layouts you can create are limitless! For example, if you would like to show your main content area on the right side of your site but still have a column of modules, simply published your modules to the right or right_inset positions or both. The same would be true for the opposite, if you want a column on the left simply publish modules to left or left_inset. Of course you can always choose to not have a column at all. Remember, any module not published to will automatically collapse and the remaining area will automatically adjust. There is no need to choose a pre-defined layout for your entire site, simply use the power of collpasing module positions and take advantage of the numerous amount of module positions to create any layout you can dream of! Be sure to checkout the layout of modules below.
Dozens of Modules
Below is a complete list of all the module positions available for this template.
The custom_1 and custom_2 positions were specifically built for the S5 Image and Content Fader module and the S5 Tab Show module. When both of these modules are used in these positions on the same page the S5 Tab Show module will overlap the S5 Image and Content Fader module, and the S5 Tab Show module will fade-in (as seen on this demo's homepage). These features will only appear if both modules are published to these positions on the same page. That does NOT mean that these are the only positions you can published these modules to nor does it mean that both modules must be present on the same page, it means this is the only configuration where the overlap and fade-in features will be present.
Because of the integration of these modules the custom_2 position should ONLY be used for the S5 Tab Show module and no other module, it is laid out just like the top_row positions and those can be used in its place for other modules. Custom_1 was specifically built for the S5 Image and Content Fader module but you can publish any other full width module there as well, but keep in mind that the menu will over lap this area, so an image module fits this area best.
