3) Add the following JavaScript to your site. This can be done manually using a custom JavaScript plugin. For further information see our documentation here. Please note, if you change the class option in the shortcode above to be anything but “slideshow” then make sure to change that on the first line of the snippet below:

var shortcodeClass = 'slideshow',
    cffSpeed = 5000, 
    $cff = $('#cff.'+ shortcodeClass);
    $cffItem = $cff.find('.cff-item'),
    cffNum = $cffItem.length,
    cffCur = 0;
$cffItem.hide();
setTimeout(function(){ $cff.find('.cff-item').eq(0).show(); }, 200);
setInterval(function(){
    $cff.find('.cff-item').eq(cffCur).fadeOut( "fast", function() {
        if( cffCur == cffNum-1 ) cffCur = -1;
        cffCur++;
        $cff.find('.cff-item').eq(cffCur).fadeIn();
    });
}, cffSpeed);

4) You can change the speed of the transition by editing the cffSpeed = 5000 value at the top of the snippet. 5000 is equal to 5 seconds (5000ms).
