The ability to autoplay your WordPress slider is a feature all web users can appreciate. From displaying real estate to product lines, having the ability to autoplay your WordPress slider is a must — and it is built directly into Soliloquy.

Check out our guide to see just how easy it is to make your WordPress slider autoplay.

STEP ONE: Configuration Options

After you select the slider you want to autoplay, go to the Config tab of the slider menu.  You will see many different configuration options. Scroll down the page until you see the autoplay option.

You will have the option to autostart (autoplay) your slider. In Soliloquy, autostart is enabled by default. If at some point an administrator disabled autostart, then you only need to check the box to reenable the feature.Soliloquy — Autostart

After you have enabled Soliloquy’s autoplay feature, you may want to customize a few additional settings that compliment the autoplay feature:

Soliloquy — Slider Play Options. 1-Pause on Hover, 2-Loop Slider, 3-Randomize slider.

These options can aid your user’s experience and manage their expectations. You can also set the speed at which autoplaying sliders will transition.

You’re almost finished making your slider autoplay.

STEP TWO: Updating and Clearing Cache

After your changes have been made, you have one or two mini-steps. The first step is to update your slider by clicking the Update button.

Last, if you use a caching plugin to speed up your WordPress site, be sure to clear out your cache so that you and your website’s visitors can see your changes.

That’s it! You just set your WordPress slider to autoplay by using Soliloquy!
