Hi All

I'm currently using a template for a content slider that will move 4 slides on a webpage. Currently its manual as a user would have to press a button for the slide to change.

How would I change the JavaScript so that each slide will change after a set time and for it to loop.



Many thanks in advance.



JavaScript:
Code:

(function($) {
  $.fn.ContentSlider = function(options)
  {
    var defaults = {
      leftBtn : 'images/cs_leftImg.png',
      rightBtn : 'images/cs_rightImg.png',
      width : '610px',
      height : '250px',
      speed : 400,
      easing : 'easeOutQuad',
      textResize : false,
      IE_h2 : '26px',
      IE_p : '11px'
    }
    var defaultWidth = defaults.width;
    var o = $.extend(defaults, options);
    var w = parseInt(o.width);
    var n = this.children('.cs_wrapper').children('.cs_slider').children('.cs_article').length;
    var x = -1*w*n+w; // Minimum left value
    var p = parseInt(o.width)/parseInt(defaultWidth);
    var thisInstance = this.attr('id');
    var inuse = false; // Prevents colliding animations

    function moveSlider(d, b)
    {
      var l = parseInt(b.siblings('.cs_wrapper').children('.cs_slider').css('left'));
      if(isNaN(l)) {
        var l = 0;
      }
      var m = (d=='left') ? l-w : l+w;
      if(m<=0&&m>=x) {
        b
          .siblings('.cs_wrapper')
            .children('.cs_slider')
              .animate({ 'left':m+'px' }, o.speed, o.easing, function() {
                inuse=false;
              });

        if(b.attr('class')=='cs_leftBtn') {
          var thisBtn = $('#'+thisInstance+' .cs_leftBtn');
          var otherBtn = $('#'+thisInstance+' .cs_rightBtn');
        } else {
          var thisBtn = $('#'+thisInstance+' .cs_rightBtn');
          var otherBtn = $('#'+thisInstance+' .cs_leftBtn');
        }
        if(m==0||m==x) {
          thisBtn.animate({ 'opacity':'0' }, o.speed, o.easing, function() { thisBtn.hide(); });
        }
        if(otherBtn.css('opacity')=='0') {
          otherBtn.show().animate({ 'opacity':'1' }, { duration:o.speed, easing:o.easing });
        }
      }
    }

    function vCenterBtns(b)
    {
      // Safari and IE don't seem to like the CSS used to vertically center
      // the buttons, so we'll force it with this function
      var mid = parseInt(o.height)/0 ;
      b
        .find('.cs_leftBtn img').css({ 'top':mid+'px', 'padding':0 }).end()
        .find('.cs_rightBtn img').css({ 'top':mid+'px', 'padding':0 });
    }

    return this.each(function() {

        // Dig down to the article div elements
        .find('.cs_article')
          // Set the width and height of the div to the defined size
          .css({
            width:o.width,
            height:o.height
          })
          .end()
        // Animate the entrance of the buttons
        .find('.cs_leftBtn')
          .css('opacity','0')
