I was wondering if its possible to add a play pause button after rsBullets. because now i have the play pause button like this. Problem with this is that the play pause button is outside of the slider container.

jQuery('.royalSlider').each(function() {

        var autoStart = true;
        var slider = jQuery(this)[0];


        var button = jQuery('<button class="pause" style="position: absolute; bottom: 23px; left: 35px; padding: 10px; left: 20px; color:#000; z-index: 9999"><i class="fa fa-pause" aria-hidden="true"></i></button>').insertAfter(slider).click(function() {

            if(autoStart) {
                jQuery(this).html('<i class="fa fa-play" aria-hidden="true"></i>');
            } else {
                jQuery(this).html('<i class="fa fa-pause" aria-hidden="true"></i>');
            autoStart = !autoStart;

    Have you tried to append it directly inside .royalSlider element? (just make sure that you do this after slider is initialized)

    Instead of insertAfter(slider), use appendTo(slider).

    The problem with that is it will insert it part of a slide within the slider.

    Make sure that you run the code after slider initialization (after .royalSlider({ ... }) method).

    If would really help if you link to the page with the issue,

    Oh. Are you place the code as described here - ? Or are you adding it to some external file?

    How can I do something like this

    function add_additional_rs_code() {
        wp_register_script('customRS', get_template_directory_uri() .'/js/royal-pause.js', array('new-royalslider-init-code'), '', true );
        wp_enqueue_script( 'customRS' );
    add_action('new_rs_after_js_init_code', 'add_additional_rs_code');

    You can include only inline code using new_rs_after_js_init_code action. If you want to include external file, use action.
