    Using the theme Slidette.

    How do I change the speed (i.e. slow down) the slidette slide show at the top of the theme?

    This is what worked for me. Go to script.js in your text editor (i.e. Dreamweaver). Find every instance of"3000" which stands for the 3 seconds it takes to rotate, and replace it with what ever number of seconds you would like it to be. I wanted 8 seconds, so I replaced it with "8000."

    Hope this helps!

    Keep an eye on my new personal site as it begins to grow!

    To add to what itsjustinidea said,

    At the top in the globals you see that var xWaitTimeline is set to 3000, which is the amount of time that the slides will stay before they transition. So you can change that to whatever you want. I changed mine to 6000.

    However if you click one of the anchor bubbles or arrows, it looks like it kicks it into a conditional that has all the defaults set at 3000 as well. So, like itsjustinidea, I changed all instances of 3000 in that function to 6000. In the ('#s').click(function() Each dot and arrow has its own timeout value, so you will have to change them all if you want consistency. You wouldnt have to, but I can't imagine why you would want some slides to display longer than others. Again, this is in the instance of navigational clicks - the global var will control the timeout in the event that a user never touches the navigation.
