Thanks for the reply Micheal, much quicker than I thought it would be!
I found the 10000 number in the source code.
However, as far as the alternate, I put the code into my page as you said, but I am confuses as to where to find the 1234 code in the css. Also, even if I did find it, I don't know what to do with it. I don't understand how to make a background image appear in relation to that code.
As for the time before the quote changes, I did find this:
testimonials-widget/testimonials-widget.php and then within it found: `jQuery(this).removeClass('hovered') });
setInterval('nextTestimonial$widget_number()', $refresh_interval * 1000);` I changed the 1000 to 3900 which slowed down the change enough to read it before changing to the next quote. Hope that's ok. It worked, so I guess it is.
Anyway, hope you don't get fried out with my lack of understanding, and give up.
Thanks in advance!
