How can I change the Swiper.js settings?

You can override the ashtabula.js file. Here’s an example.

Add this to your child theme’s functions.php file.

/** Override Swiper Slider Plugin JS */
function override_ssp_js()
    wp_enqueue_script('swiper-slider-custom-js', get_stylesheet_directory_uri().'/js/swiper-slider-custom.js', '', '1.0.0', true);
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'override_ssp_js', 100);

Create this file: /js/swiper-slider-custom.js. Add this code to the file. It will override the default plugin settings for Swiper.js.

 * Make the slides:
 * 1. Slide up instead of 
 * to the right.
 * 2. Loop instead of rewind.
 * 3. Speed up to 3 seconds.
(function () {
  let swiper = new Swiper(".swiper-container", {
    autoplay: {
      delay: 3000,
    direction: "vertical",
    loop: true,
