Hi. I want to change the "more" text and add a graphic inline after that text in the feature slider on my blog page (it picks up the 5 most-recent posts). I can duplicate the "feature" directory to my child theme, but I'm concerned that theme updates will require me to update the code in the child theme. Can this be over-ridden in the functions.php instead? Thank you Tim

Tim, there are hundreds of alternative sliders out there that might suit your needs in place of ours. It's often as simple as placing a shortcode into a page or post with one of those. I do not know that you can change the text (More) if the slider's picking up the posts by Category Mode.
