    are you referring to the entire content of the page, or just a single block of text?

    Try this. Put your text within a hidden div called "delayedText" and this should work.

    Code:
    <html>
     
    <head>
    <script>
    window.onload = function(){
      // Change this value to however many seconds you want to delay the text by.
      var theDelay = 5;
      var timer = setTimeout("showText()",theDelay*1000)
    }
    function showText(){
      document.getElementById("delayedText").style.visibility = "visible";
    }
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="delayedText" style="visibility:hidden">
    This is some delayed text
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    Multi scripts like this

    Goodday

    it is my first time I code a website, so I'm not good with it yet.
    I saw this code because I wanted to try something similar, however I wanted to have multi text divs appear with an interval.
    But when I use the code above, only the last div I entered is shown, indeed after the 8 second delay I made.
    This is the code that I'm using. Could anyone be of assistance?
    thanks
