How can I make the slider transition automatically?
Edit the page containing the slider (probably your homepage) and locate the slider shortcode e.g.
[slider timeout="0" margins="0,0,15,0"]
Change the "timeout" value of 0 to the number of seconds between slide transitions. So for 6 seconds between each slide it would look like this:
[slider timeout="6" margins="0,0,15,0"]
