i would like to remove a first slide whilst being on a second. But when i do that, the third slide is shown.
How could i solve that?

I tried to call goto(0) but than the slider animates from the (now) second slide to the first.

I just want to remove the first slide without the user noticing that (without animations)

    Not sure if there won't be any issues, but in theory this should work:

    var rs =  $('.royalSlider').data('royalSlider');
    rs.currSlideId = rs.currSlideId - 1;

    additional note

    Unfortunately, it becomes more complex if you want to do this without animation. You'll have to reset -PREFIX-transition CSS property and slider option to 0 before reorering and revert to normal after it so it won't animate.

    To make this code work, you'll have to use unminified version of script to get access to local properties.

    var rs =  $('.royalSlider').data('royalSlider');
    var oldSpeed =;
    rs.currSlideId = rs.currSlideId - 1; 
    rs._slidesContainer.css((rs._vendorPref + rs._TD), '0ms'); = 0; 
    setTimeout(function() { = oldSpeed; }, 100);

    But you'll still notice short "flicker", especially on mobile devices because of rendering issues.

    that's not really satisfying. You should definitely think about a "animate=true/false" parameter in the next, prev, goto and removeSlide functions :)

    By any chance.. Is there a way to "switch off" the first slide without removing it?
    This could help too

    You may simply remove content from slide, it depends on your situation.

    If i just remove the content, the left arrow of the slider is still switched on..

    Well.. i think i am going to just deactivate the left arrow automatically or something.
