I have a Custom CSS solution using animation. I only used this on version 7.0, so not sure if it works on 7.1. Also, this code is heavily dependent on the number of slides, so you'll have to tweak it for the number of slides you have. If the number of actual slides changes but you don't change the code, your slideshow should revert back to the default, which is better than breaking completely. Disclaimer: this is a css hack, so use at your own risk! 🙂

The sample code below rotates 5 slides every 7 seconds with 2 seconds of crossfade transition:

1. Override the default javascript animation which manipulates opacity, visibility, and z-index. Change "nth-last-child(5)" selectors to the number of slides you have:

.sqs-gallery-design-stacked-slide:first-child:nth-last-child(5),
.sqs-gallery-design-stacked-slide:first-child:nth-last-child(5) ~ .sqs-gallery-design-stacked-slide {
  visibility: visible !important;
  opacity: 1 !important;
  z-index: auto !important;
}

If you're not familiar with the selectors above, read this.

2. Add a looping animation to each slide IMG tag. 35s is the duration it will take to display all the slides (5 slides * 7s) before starting over. 0s, 7s, etc are the delays before each slide begins to fade in. Be sure to change these values for your number of slides and preferred timing.

.sqs-gallery-design-stacked-slide:nth-child(1):nth-last-child(5) img {
  opacity: 1;
  animation: xfade 35s linear infinite forwards 0s;
}

.sqs-gallery-design-stacked-slide:nth-child(2):nth-last-child(4) img {
  opacity: 0;
  animation: xfade 35s linear infinite forwards 7s;
}

.sqs-gallery-design-stacked-slide:nth-child(3):nth-last-child(3) img {
  opacity: 0;
  animation: xfade 35s linear infinite forwards 14s;
}

.sqs-gallery-design-stacked-slide:nth-child(4):nth-last-child(2) img {
  opacity: 0;
  animation: xfade 35s linear infinite forwards 21s;
}

.sqs-gallery-design-stacked-slide:nth-child(5):nth-last-child(1) img {
  opacity: 0;
  animation: xfade 35s linear infinite forwards 28s;
}

3. Add the animation keyframes. 0% is intentionally empty so that the first image appears without fading in. 5.714% is the 2s mark (of 35s) when fade-in is complete. 20% is the 7s mark when the slide should begin fading out. 25.714% is the 9s mark when fade-out is complete.

@keyframes xfade {
  0% {
  }
  5.714% {
    opacity: 1;
  }
  20% {
    opacity: 1;
  }
  25.714% {
    opacity: 0;
  }
  100% {
    opacity: 0;
  }
}

Hope this helps someone. Good luck!

This worked for me. Although, not straight away. I pasted the code in, then had to add another gallery image block, refresh the browser then worked.

.gallery-fullscreen-slideshow-item-img{
	transition: opacity 1600ms ease-in-out !important;
	-webkit-transition: opacity 1600ms ease-in-out !important;
	-ms-transition: opacity 1600ms ease-in-out !important;
	-moz-transition: opacity 1600ms ease-in-out !important;
	-o-transition: opacity 1600ms ease-in-out !important;
}

//.gallery-fullscreen-slideshow[data-transition="fade"] 
.gallery-fullscreen-slideshow-item[data-active="true"] .gallery-fullscreen-slideshow-item-src{
	transition: opacity 1400ms ease-in-out !important;
	-webkit-transition: opacity 1400ms ease-in-out !important;
	-ms-transition: opacity 1400ms ease-in-out !important;
	-moz-transition: opacity 1400ms ease-in-out !important;
	-o-transition: opacity 1400ms ease-in-out !important;
}

Hi @tuanphan, we have a client who is using Squarespace 7.0, and we have a testimonial section auto-looping, but the timing is way too fast. How can we slow this down? Below is the link to the site, and the testimonial section is at the bottom of the page. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! https://www.meritsdesigngroup.com/story

Did you use code to add this auto loop or this is default feature?

I think you used another code to make this loop, because I tried remove all code in Custom CSS box, but it still autoplay.

Can you check it again?

I think you choose this option

image.thumb.png.1d8d3a3cd28a0ac5ca8f56eafcd7cf71.png

and it should have this option to change speed
