Change the slider in "Ascetica" and/or "Untitled" themes to automatic

    Thinking about purchasing the Custom Design Package. Would like to know if I will be able to use CSS to change the post slider in "Ascetica" and/or "Untitled" themes from manual to automatic (timed) advance.

    The blog I need help with is gospel.wordpress.com.

  2. No that's not possible.

    Does the Custom Design upgrade let me edit HTML?
    No. The Custom Design upgrade allows you to edit fonts and CSS only. You can change the appearance of a theme, but not its HTML markup, PHP code, or content. If you require this functionality, please consider moving your blog to a web host that supports theme code modifications, suitable hosts can be found here. http://get.wp.com/hosting/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/Read more about why here. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

  3. This link might be a good place to start if you're still looking around at themes. It doesn't separate out things that have automatically and pants sliders, but it's the best list:
    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/post-slider/

    Do you need help picking a theme?

    No, thank you; I am quite familiar with the many lovely wordpress.com themes and the feature filters on the theme page.

    I was just trying see how much the Custom Design upgrade would allow me to tweak the features of the themes with CSS modifications/additions: specifically, to change the settings of the post slider.

    Unfortunately, from the response so far, it does not seem to be possible via the Custom Design upgrade. :(

    Thanks anyway.

    Best regards,

    Correct. CSS allows you to change the appearance of things that are already on the page, but you cannot add dynamic content or change features using CSS.
