Hi there,

We are trying to launch a new page with our sponsors logos on it and I can't for the life of me work out how to get the banners to auto scroll. On our test home page I have tried to use code form this forum page but there's obviously no carousel available anymore. The only way to get it to auto play is using the simple slideshow format but that only shows one image at a time and is too tall for me to even consider it. We're trying to keep it pretty short so it doesn't take up the whole page. Any help or ideas for this would be much appreciated. Home Test Flight — QUTEFS - QUT Economics and Finance Society

I gave the solution in the following post: 

For you case, we need change a little bit in selecting the next button (Currently your page has 2 next button, one in carousel, one in lightbox). Try adding to Home > Settings > Advanced > Code Injection, choose footer

<script>
  (function docReady(fn) {
    // see if DOM is already available
    if (document.readyState === "complete" || document.readyState === "interactive") {
      // call on next available tick
      setTimeout(fn, 1);
    } else {
      document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", fn);
    }
  })(() => {
    if (window.location == window.parent.location) {
      const reelControls = document.querySelectorAll('.gallery-reel-control-btn[aria-label*="Next"]');
      reelControls.forEach(reelControl => {
        (function reelTimer() {
          setTimeout(() => {
            reelControl.click();
            reelTimer();
          }, 2000); // change this value to change the speed
        })();
      })
    }
  });

</script>

Let me know how it works on your site

You're an absolute legend! Thanks so much it works perfectly. 

One follow up question. Since this is our test home page that we'll eventually swap with our current one, will I have to change anything if its slug is going from /home-test to /home?

No, my code apply for the general class, not target to a specific block, so you can check it in you go-live page
