The Easy way to Add Buttons to WordPress
WordPress is an amazing content management system that makes it very easy to create content for you to share with your friends family and the world. When you first build your website with WordPress, you will find that there is some level of functionality that you are missing. This is where your choice of theme and plugins will come into play.
In this article I will give you insight on a very popular plugin that makes it easy for you to add buttons that are also linkable to your posts or pages. This will come in handy when you want to have a link that stands out from the rest of the content on your website. It can be for a social media link or can be a link to an external website they are trying to recommend to your website visitors.
There are many ways in which you can add a button to your blog post or page but usability and functionality is something that needs to be paid attention to.
When you’re creating a new blog post, you can always choose to use the text feature instead of the visual feature of creating a blog post. When using the text option which you typically find in the toolbar section towards the right as a tab identified as text, you can insert HTML and CSS for that particular page. The downfall to this is a need to know HTML and CSS and it’s also very time-consuming and might take you out of your typical content generation workflow. That’s why I recommend using either a theme that comes with buttons built-in that are easy to use or preferably use a plugin which is the best way to add buttons to your postal pages.
Recommended WordPress Button Plugin
The WordPress plugin that I recommend using is called “forget about short code buttons” and it can be found on the WordPress website Forget About Shortcode Buttons. Here is some information about the plugin and the features it provides.
A visual way to add CSS buttons in the post editor screen and to your themes. Forget About Shortcode (FASC) Buttons are a visual way to add CSS buttons in the post editor screen and to your themes. Instead of adding shortcodes in the post editor, you insert real, styled buttons – making the process of adding buttons to your posts and pages much more natural whilst improving the appearance and usability of the post editor. FASC Buttons tries to be as clean as possible with the html, only using data attributes for necessary features – the buttons you use in the post editor use the exact same classes as on the front end of your site with no extra or hidden markup to make them behave this way.
Once you install and activate the plugin, it will add a new icon to the post or page toolbar that will enable you to easily add highly customizable buttons to your blog post or page. You can customize the button by choosing any color you want, by inserting text, inserting a link, customizing the size of the button and other ways to make your button standout. It’s a very easy to use plugin that you will find comes in handy when you quickly want to create a link that stands out from the rest of the text in your content.
It also comes with icons that you can use in your buttons to make them even more visually appealing. I highly recommend this plugin to be part of your WordPress powered website.
