Is there a way to make the homepage slideshow auto play instead of using the arrows? Is there a tutorial on customizing the slideshow somewhere?

Hey Kirk,

Definitely possible to do this, but it's hard to say how without knowing which slider your theme is using. There should be some controls for your slider within your script.js or theme.js file. If you're lucky there will be a setting called autoplay that's switched to false. Switch that to true and you'd be good to go.

If you can't find that then you might have to check out the developer website for the slider and check their api. If you reply with the theme you're using I can help you further with this.

Cheers,
Kyle

I'm an impatient idiot. It IS auto playing. Duh. Thanks though.

Hey Kirk!

It's also possible to change the transition times between slides. Let us know if you need a hand!

Thanks,

Thanks I see it is a WooThemes plugin. I'm pretty sure I can figure it out. I appreciate the help.
