5 Save your template and you are all done with template editing!

You can add a theme of your choice too if you wish. Do ask us on our forum if you wish to create a button with your custom color choice.

3. Finally Start Adding Buttons using a Shortcode!

To add a button inside your post, comments or sidebar HTML/JavaScript widgets, use the shortcode below

[button]Your Title[/button]

OUTPUT:

default button 

Customize the Button!

Following is the complete list of attributes supported by Buttons Shortcode

Attribute Definition
src Insert button URL/Link here
color Mentions Button Color. Options: red, brown, blue, green, purple, black, orange, fb
size Adjusts the size of the button. Options: small, medium, large 
rel Decides whether to add a nofollow to a link or not


Now lets suppose you want to create a Download button with a Download icon, blue background and large size. Then you will use attributes inside shortcode in the following format.

[button size="large" color="blue" src="http://www.example.com"]
<i class="fa fa-download"></i> Download
[/button]

OUTPUT:

Download button shortcode

  • Insert download link inside the src attribute. Replace http://www.example.com with your URL.
  • Replace fa-download with your FontAwesome Icon class.

That simple! :)

Nofollow the Buttons!

Another exciting update we made to this button today (12th May 2015) is the option to decide whether you want to add a nofollow link attribute to the button or not. You may want to nofollow demo buttons and social media buttons and for that we have created for you the option to decide whether you want to flow your PageRank juice to a particle link or not. Whenever you want to tell robots that you are linking a site but you are not recommending it and neither you wish to pass your precious PR juice to it through a backlink, then simply add the rel attribute in the shortcode in this format:

[button rel="nofollow" src="http://www.example.com"]DEMO[/button]

If incase you want to recommend the link and pass your PR juice to it then simply don't bother adding any rel attribute.
