How to change the slideshow timing

If you are using the Content Slideshow and want to change the speed/time for the slide changes, you will have to make a core file adjustment. Unfortunately, this particular slideshow does not have a setting in the admin area.

  1. Open up the Visionary theme files and look for this file: /js/slideswitch.js file (by jonrassch.com)
  2. Find this code:
    $(function() {
    setInterval( "slideSwitch()", 6000 );
    });
  3. Change the 6000 to another number. The 6000 represents 6000 ms (milliseconds) which means 6 seconds. If you want it to be 8 seconds, you would change this to 8000; if you want it to be 10 seconds, it would be 10000
  4. Save the file and your slide changes should now update to the new time setting.
