    Hello, the first thing to check is to make sure you have setup your site according to the theme setup guide: https://wordpress.com/theme/purpose/setup. You will first need to follow these steps to setup your homepage:

    Create a Page, preferably titled “Home.”
    Set the Home Page template within the Page Attributes module.
    To to My Site → Design → Customize → Homepage Settings.
    Choose the option to display a static page for the homepage.
    Select your newly created “Home” page from the Homepage drop down list.
    Click the blue Publish button.

    Then, follow these steps to add your homepage slider:

    Add a Tag to the Posts you wish to display in the Slider, e.g. “featured.”
    Navigate to My Site → Customize → Featured Content
    Enter the name of the Tag, e.g. “featured.”
    Click the blue Save button at the bottom.

    Once a Tag name has been saved, posts having this tag will appear in the featured content slider. You can specify an image to be displayed with each post by setting a featured image. The suggested size for featured images is 980 pixels wide and 520 pixels high.

    To have a text excerpt appear in the slider post with the featured image mentioned above, type an excerpt in the Excerpt field. You can find this field below the content area on the Edit Post page. If you do not see the Excerpt field, you will need to click the Screen Options tab on the top right of the Edit Posts page, and check the Excerpt box (see photo below). If a post doesn’t have an excerpt, the post title will not be displayed in the slider either.

    Please let me know if you have questions regarding any of these setup instructions, and I’ll be glad to help.

    Kind Regards,

    Emily

    Hello,

    It’s not possible to change the button text. However, you can change the landing page for the slide using the Page Links To plugin, https://wordpress.org/plugins/page-links-to/

    Thanks!
