how to add simple navigation to a slideshow in a blank page

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://grouse-goose-b4ym.squarespace.com/photographicdiaries

On my normal Wells Gallery Pages, you can flick through my images from left to right with a simple arrow cursor.

I've added a slideshow gallery into a blank page, and there's no way of creating a simple navigation arrow. 

The only option I have is 'Show Next and Previous Controls' in the Design edit section, however these don't look great, and don't connect to the layout for the rest of my site. 

I've tried copy and pasting the Custom CSS coding to create > and < arrows, but that didn't work.


Any help/solutions much appreciated. 


Thanks, Felix

Thanks for trying to help.

My website is now live and it's www.felixpilgrim.com 

If you go the page called 'Photo Diaries', you'll see that you have to click o each image to move them on. What I want is a simple arrow navigator.

Best wishes,
