Let’s see if I can explain this…
I have a slider called GraphicsSlider which documents our company’s graphics capabilities. When people click on the Learn More button, that slider opens up (like a webpage) to give the reader more info. I also have a ‘traditional’ Page created (let’s call in GraphicsPage) which essentially reveals the same information if a user clicks on that option from a dropdown menu.
The problem is that I have duplicate information stored on the Slider and the Page and I don’t want to make changes to both pages to keep them synched. Can slider Learn More buttons point to a “Page”, OR can menu dropdowns point to a Slider?

You need to go with your second option. To do so, please create a custom link menu item and change its text and page URL to your desired page.

Thank you for this option as it does indeed accomplish what I requested. However, we find that Pages have more functionality than Slider for quickly handling things like embedding a YouTube video. Would it be possible to have a future revision where the Learn More button redirects to a Custom Link (like a Page) in the future so that we could build our pages via a Page rather than a Slider?
We will look at coding it through HTML in the future, but working with WP blocks is our preferred method going forward and those do not appear in Sliders.

You can edit the page link from the permalink area below the page title and having a single slider item will cover your requirement. Beside that, this theme is Fully Gutenberg Editor (Block Base) compatible. So you can simply start building your pages from the latest Gutenberg Editor.
Please let us know it helps.

Is there any way to stop the first few lines of the Excerpt (or the first few lines of Body of the slider page, that is enetered in the white big box under the permalink edit area) from showing on the slider? – BUT I would still like to be able to write into the body of the slider page, so that words/ paragraphs / images show below when you click on the Learn More button and scroll down.
ie. I’d like my sliders to show the large font line and the Learn More button only (and not the smaller font line between).
Thanks in advance,
PS I love this theme. But alternatively, If the Learn More button could link directly to a Page, it would be even more perfect.
