He He… I finally tracked down where the bx-slider variable was being set so I figured I’d answer my own question for anyone else out there looking to adjust the duration the slider pauses. (hint: look in total-custom.js) I adjusted the bxSlider ‘pause’ value to 10000 for a 10 second pause before ‘fade’ing to the next slider. Now I’m curious what other ‘mode’s exist for the slider. 🙂
Hope this helps someone on their journey customizing WP Themes.
