    Don't know if there's a quirk in the 7.1 implementation. I was searching for auto scroll carousel and slideshow and after much frustration and effectively giving up, I accidentally stumbled on the feature! It only seems available from inside a blog post (i.e. when you are editing the content of a blog post)!

    E.g. Try this. Add/Create a Blog page (Pages>Collections>Blog) - It doesn't matter which layout you select for the blog page so select whatever suites you best. Once the blog page is created you will see about four example posts created for you. Select one for editing (click edit). Once the post is open for editing go down to the top of a text block and proceed to create a new content block (by clicking + on the frame of the text block - This will open the window where you can select a new type of content block. Look down the and you will find the section named "Gallery".

    Bingo! There you will see Slideshow, Carousel (and some others but these are the two you've been looking for!). Create on e of these. You may now need to do some jiggery pokery to make the new Blog fit in and work with your web site but this seems to be the only way to get that auto scroll feature.

    Clearly the feature is built in to 7.1 but for some reason is missing form the list of available content blocks when this menu comes up outside of a blog post. Why??? Looks like a oversite and that it should be available from other areas too.

    Please Squarespace coders, can this be looked into as this is a much needed feature that we need access to from other types of Pages also.

    For now, I hope this post is helpful in some way to anyone else trying to get a auto scroll slideshow or carousel working on their v7.1 website. :-)

    Good spot! That's frankly a bit rubbish it's only available for blog pages.
