    My jquery slideshow is not functioning properly

    Bear with me, I'm not a programmer. I have a template based site from squarespace with a bad slideshow. The stock one scrolls too fast. So I turned off auto play in the settings.

    Im able to add jquery / java / html / css but i cant modify the existing code. Anyone have any suggestions on how to make this slideshow work properly?

    Here is what I added to make it play/fade, but its really hurky-jerky.

    <script>
    window.setInterval(slideClick, 9000); function slideClick()
    { $(".slide").click(); $(".sqs-active-slide").hide().fadeIn(); }
    </script>

    First, what you're dealing with is NOT Java. Java and Javascript are entirely different.

    Next, wrong forum section. There is a section dedicated to Javascript.

    Lastly, if you can't edit the code, there's not much you can do. That being said, your code is clunky because you're clicking all the slides every 9 seconds, forcing the system to do who knows what. But because I have no idea what the implication is, no way to actually help.
