Typewriter Effect - One Loop


capturecollect

Question

Site URL: https://seadragon-apple-c697.squarespace.com/

Hello!

I've been wanting to add in a typewriter effect to a Squarespace 7.1 website that I'm working on.

I found a great guide by @tuanphan that I followed and I'm really happy with the resulting effect at the top of the homepage. Code below as a reference to the original solution.

It would be great to implement this code in other areas of the website; for example - section/product page sub-headers. The only issue is that instead of having the typewriter effect cycle through a series of words or sentences, am I able to have it do the typewriter effect on one sentence and instead of deleting and redoing it on a loop - just hold on the word with the blinking cursor once it has typed out? 

Additionally, is it possible to just have a linking cursor at the end of a word or sentence, without the typing effect itself?

I appreciate that this is a bit of a double ended one, but any help on this would be amazing.

Thanks!
