Currently the gallery does start right away and it does pause on a slide for 3 seconds. In order to hide the start/stop button, add this to your CSS:
To change the width of the slider, open anythingslider.css and change ‘width: 700px;’ to ‘width: 620px;’ – This is on line 11.
Do you mean you want the current arrows to appear once you hover on the slider?
I dislike the start/stop thing with anythingSlider and I like the thought of having a pretty cool ‘fader’ too so I’m busy creating a content slider too – You can find the beta here if you’re want to have a look (Note: AnythingSlider is definitely way more advanced with much more features)
