      Hello Lina,
      Yes, you can attach an audio with more than one image. You just have to upload the images and attach them with the already uploaded audio file from your library.

    I have enabled the plugin but it makes all of my button icons disappear, instead of the squares. Then I deactivated the plugin and everything works normally. Btw, if I want to add audio to feature image, have any suggestions? Thanks so much!

    Is there any way to change the color, size and position of the player button?
    I ask this because the button cannot be found on the white background on the pictures I use.

    Hey Daniel,
    You can’t change the color, size or position of the player button from the plugin.
    However, you can use an additional CSS Code for that.
