Please advise.

Typically slideshow banners allow for a way for the speed of the slideshow to be manipulated. I don't see a way in Open Cart for me to speed-up or slow-down the speed of my slideshow.

I figured that it might be in the CSS Style sheet but did not see it.

Hello simonbk!

The "<em>Default</em>" theme has the option to change the banner transition speed for the nivo slider; however, we could not find any way to get the script to work with the "<em>Simple</em>" theme. The "<em>Default</em>" theme page that contains the javascript to speed up the slider is the following location.


<img class="std_ss" src="" alt="default open cart them slider" width="500" />

Your "<em>Simple</em>" theme slider code is located in the following location.


<img class="std_ss" src="" alt="simple open cart them slider" width="500" />

We renamed the "<em>Simple</em>" theme slideshow.tpl and copied the one from the "<em>Default</em>" theme. The slider started working, however, the navigation for the slider broke.

We tried adding the code to the slideshow.tpl from the "<em>Default</em>" to the "<em>Simple</em>" theme; however, it did not fix the problem. From what we see the slider speed cannot be changed in the simple theme because of an incompatibility in the code somewhere. Sorry for this.
