    It’s preposterous that WordPress (and Elementor) cannot just have a button or sliding scale to change the speed of the photo carousel. Makes me wish I would have gone to school for programming. I guess the gear heads set this stuff up to take care of one another; if you made it so easy that the user could do it, you won’t need to pay a gear head consultant for it.
