How do I add auto-slideshow to my gallery?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I recently added a gallery section to my website, and the gallery type is currently set to "reel". While I have arrows on the sides to navigate, I've been unable to figure out how to set it up so that the pictures autoscroll rather than doing so only with input from my end. 

I'd appreciate any clarifications!

This is possible with some custom code. If you share link to page where you use Reel, we can help easier

You can also try adding this to Settings > Advanced > Code Injection > Footer

(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 [aria-label="Next Slide"]');
		reelControls.forEach(reelControl => {
			(function reelTimer() {
				setTimeout(() => {
				}, 2000); // change this value to change the speed
