  3. Hello brother,

    Thank you very much for your this post. I found it to be very useful and I shall use it in my website.

    However, how to control the speed of the image slider? The default speed seems to be a bit fast for my purposes, as I have images with a lot of details to be read.

    Can you please let me and others know how to customize the time/speed of the slider? whether in seconds or miliseconds, etc.?

    And also the code for how to pause the slideshow on hover?

    If you can provide the code it will be useful.

    Thank you very much in advance,
