Summary Block: How can I set the Carousel to "autoplay"?

Go to solution Solved by clayyount,


I love the new Summary Block carousel. I'm curious if it's possible to "autoplay" the carousel much like galleries can do. I know this is possible using Developer Platform galleries, but would love to be able to use with Block Carousels.

--I'm not a coder-- but I mixed code from a couple of answers and got this to work in the updated 2019 SS. Note: It does not work in the preview and you have to view your site from an incognito window

@bheiberg change from 10000 to something like 5000 the lower, the faster "timeout":10000,

I'm another person trying to get a Reel slideshow to autoplay in 7.1. I've seen a few answers floating around, but none seem to be working for me. Have folks confirmed that the code above shared by @Andrei and @tuanphan makes autoplay work for slideshow blocks in 7.1? If yes, I'm seeing people post that it works either when injected in the footer of the whole site or under advanced settings for a particular page — which is working? 

And maybe I'm completely missing something here, but should the slug added to target your gallery be your page ID (e.g. collection ID found in body tag) or section id for the gallery itself? 🙃

If you share link to your site, I can give the code to make gallery reel autoplay.

Hey @clayyount—how can i slow down the switch timing for this code from your original answer? 


   Y.on('domready', function () {
       var galleries = Y.Squarespace.GalleryManager.getGalleries();
       for( i = 0; i<galleries.length; i++){


Please and thank you!!!
