The Slider and Tabs can be displayed side by side using the rather awkwardly titled Slider-Tabs module. The layout code from the individual modules is not used and neither the sidebar or the Content Slide plugin are supported, but all the other Slider options and Tabs options are used. You may only have one Slider and one set of Tabs on each page so if you have already loaded the Slider or Tabs modules the Slider-Tabs module will not load. Similarly if you have loaded the Slider-Tabs module any further calls to the Slider or Tabs modules will be ignored.
This module does not have its own options (yet).
The images are displayed at 701x263 pixels which is the same 8:3 proportion as the 960x360 images on the slider so the same images can be used.
