Automatic slideshow of quotes

Hello

This is my first time working with 7.1, and i thought for this website it would be nice to have automatic quotes cycle through on the homepage. I've tried several different things without code, but it doesn't seem possible to do this whether it's with a photo behind it or not. As you can see from the link above I have tried several different things.

The first one is using a summary block of blog posts, but there's no option to cycle through quotes, only how many to show.

My second attempt, as you can see below that, I tried to use gallery images (the same image over and over) with quotes. But there doesn't seem to be a way to put the text ON the image, only below the image.

So my question is: Is there a way i can have some quotes cycle through on the page? At this point i don't care if i can, or have to, put an image behind the quotes.

I hope my question makes sense. 7.1 is driving me a bit crazy 🙂

EDIT: I've had to remove my attempts to make the site presentable, but am still interested in help.

Thanks!

Hey!

I don't think i know what you mean. Is this a type of gallery section? I've tried the slideshow gallery, with automatic cycling, but the text is always below the image, not on it. I've replicated this to show you, if you go to the page now. 

I've tried a summary block with blog posts. It doesn't allow a summary of gallery images, although i have a gallery here. (This isn't the gallery i would use, but it's good enough to figure out the problem)

Making a summary of the quotes in blog form also doesn't work

"List Section Banner Slideshow" is honestly random words to me :(

Could you have a look and also tell me more about "List section banner slideshow"?

Thanks so much

Thanks so much, Tuanphan!

I was very confused at first, not being able to find this "list" section you were talking about, but it turns out you have to turn off Squarespaces's fancy "fluid engine" feature! This gives more design options.

I indeed found what you were talking about, and it's exactly what I need. Unfortunately the autoscroll feature seems to only be accessible to Business accounts.

All the same, this was the solution, so thank you so much!
