    Is it possible to add a background color to home page slide titles and descriptions?

    I can change the home page slides title and description text color, but it is hard to read on some of the images chosen for slides. If I were able to create a background just on the text floating on the picture, then I could make the text easier to read.

    Is it also possible to modify the text to appear on either the right or left side of the slides? I imagine I would need to modify the CSS directly?

    Thank you,

    Changing Slide Button 1 from “Read More” to different text causes the button to lose all styling. I have not yet published.

    I have changed the first slides image – removed the Title and the Description.

    I modified the button text to contain the following:

    <b>CROSS Food Pantry</b><br />Read more

    The button appears in the SKT Theme Customize “preview” in the Word Press Dashboard. It was published, but the button is not displaying at the published site URL.

    I removed Title and Description text because only the button has a modifiable Background-Color style.

    I noticed also that the slider is not working in production but in the dashboard the slider does change to slides 2 and 3 still in the SKT customize preview.

    My website url is http://dev.crossministriesdm.org.

    Making changes to slider “read more” button text caused slider to change format and disappear.
