Episode 7 "EZ Banner Rotator, Media Cmdr, Better Updater"

We have three newborn modules again today. One for banner display on your site, the second for managing media, and the third to enhance your site updating experience.

The first is a simple module for displaying rotating banners on your site, the EZ Banner Rotator project.

EZ Banner Rotator is a JQuery based advanced banner module. This provide an Image based slideshow like banner rotator for the Drupal page. This creates a block in Drupal block section which can be assigned to a page block.

The strength of the module is, highly configurable to fit any type of website.

Next up is the Media Cmdr project. I mistakenly described the Media WYSIWYG project during Episode 6 with this module. This module adds a media browser using the Media module. Sorry.

Add a new tab to Media (http://drupal.org/project/media) module browser with an MC look&feel file manager
