Image slider "throttle"?

Permalink Browser Info Environment
Hello James,

Is there any setting to slow down the image slider on the home banner? I would like to leave each slide up 8-10 seconds, if possible.

Thank you!

HI Steve,

I'm currently using concrete5's built in slider, so to change the timeout speed we need to change a core js file. Are you comfortable navigating and editing files on your c5 installation? If so, try going to root/concrete/blocks/image_slider/ and look for view.js. Open view js with your preferred text editing tool. On the first line look for "timeout:4E3" change 4E3 to 8000 for 8 seconds or 10000 for 10 seconds.

I apologise if this is somewhat complicated but it's currently the only way to do it.

I hope I made sense. Let me know if you did it or if you need more help.

Regards and good luck,
James

Hi James, than you very much for the quick reply. I think I will be able to do that. I needed to do a fresh start on the site, but believe I will use the slider again so this will come in handy.
I was stepping through image files which were texts, so a user would benefit from a tad more time to read them if someone was landing there and sitting at the home page.

Best,
-Steve

Hi James, this may be due to an update to the theme, or Concrete since I first posted, but I navigate here on my shared server with my host:

/home4/******/public_html/********/concrete/blocks

and do not see view.js. I have a view.css and a view.php.

Is that time attribute in a new spot now? Thank you for any pointer!

Hi Steve,

The slider is a native concrete5 block so it should always be under concrete/blocks - but in cases where concrete5 is updated, there should be an update folder under your root which overrides the concrete folder. But I could be wrong and they moved the js file. What version of concrete5 are you running?

I hope this what somewhat useful.

Kind regards,
James

Thanks once again for the quick response, James.

That gave me a place to dig, but no luck.

My apologies, I had updated my old install... my new install was a fresh copy of 5.7.5.6, and
wouldn't you know... the update puts slide transition and duration time settings right
on the OPTIONS tab of the slider! Where is my EASY button?

I am all set, and thanks once again!
