hi Movin, per your request, here is a separate support thread. My dev site can be found here:
The site may not be visible to you in dev phase. I currently have a slider plugin displaying a slider, but I prefer the one in the theme. I think something got corrupted. I’ve attached a screencap of the customizer. As you can see, I no longer have the option of selecting slides for my slider!
I have backups of everything, so if you tell my what file to replace/restore, I think the functionality will return. Thanks.
