For example if you want to make the transition of the slider faster you should use the slideshowSpeed option. The default time is 7000 ms and you can change it to whatever you want, the smaller the value the faster the transition will be.

Go to your FTP and look for the footer.php file usually found in this structure

For Easy Theme:


For New Blue Theme:


And look for the line after $('.flexslider').flexslider({ and then insert this code in slideshowSpeed: 5000, so that the whole script will look like this

 $('.flexslider').flexslider({ slideshowSpeed: 5000, animation: "slide", start: function(slider){ $('body').removeClass('loading'); } }); 

Save the file then hit refresh. If you don't see the changes you might need to clear your Concrete5 Cache. You can do the same to the other options mentioned above.
