hi there,

I would like a banner slideshow to autoplay. I saw there have been threads about this before, but my client doesn't have a business or premium account, so I can't inject code into footer or header. is there still a way to do it?

I would also like it to work on the banner slideshow on the HOME page AND another banner slideshow on the TEAM page.

this is on 7.1

please help!

Squarespace now has a confusing variety of Blocks and Sections that allow you to add a slideshow, but most of these are static and don't have an auto-advance option.

Whilst it is possible to add script to automate these static elements, you won't be able to do this when the website is on a Personal Plan; they don't allow scripts. In these circumstances you must use one of the built-in autoplay solutions.

For example, on Squarespace 7.1 you can add a Gallery Section and then enable Autoplay:
