Auto-scroll Gallery (Type - Slideshow:Reel)


Hey, everyone!

I have a Squarespace 7.1 site and I'm having an issue.

I have a gallery block which I have set to "slideshow:reel" gallery type. I want the images to autoplay (which was a feature available in previous versions). I've tried the code injection from this thread, but I haven't had any luck getting it to work: 

How can I get this gallery to autoplay/auto-scroll? 

Thank you!

If you share link to gallery reel page, we can check easier.

I managed to write a code using Jquery. It's not to most elegant way,  basically its made to click the next arrow in the slideshow every couple of seconds:

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.0.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

  const init = () => {
    setInterval(() => {
    	$('.gallery-reel-control [aria-label="Next Slide"]').trigger('click');
    }, 6000); // change this value to change the speed
  document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', init);

You can insert this into Code Injection or in to the Advanced section of the specific page the Slideshow is on.

I haven't tested if this works on any other gallery types by the way.
