Using the Button Widget

Creating links

You can link your button to an external URL, an existing Leadpage, a popup Leadbox, or another section on your page. First, click your button, then click the chainlink icon in the widget settings panel, as seen here: 

Then, choose to link your button to an External URL, Leadpage, Leadbox, or a section.

If you choose a URL or existing Leadpage, you can select the New Window option to make the link open in a new browser window. You can also choose Use Nofollow so the hyperlink does not influence the ranking of the link’s target in a search engine's index.

Formatting text

Click the font icon (Aa) to adjust the font, size, line spacing, and style of your button text. 

Within the font settings you can also format your text in bold, italics, underline or strikethrough. 

Customization and Styling Details

In the style menu, you can change the button’s size, choosing between small, medium, or large. You can also select the Full Width option, which will force the button to fill the entire width of whatever column it’s in. 

In the style menu, you can choose between square, rounded, or circular corners for your button. You can also choose between a flat, outline, or gradient style of button, as seen below:  

The color picker allows you to enter hex codes and select a color for the background of your button and text, as shown below:

Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

Can I link a button to a standalone Leadbox, created with the old builder?

Absolutely, but you'll want to use the HTML widget instead of the button widget. Using the full HTML code for a Standard Leadbox will allow you to create a button and use integration services which are not yet supported in the Drag & Drop builder.

Tip: Don’t forget to link the button.

Although you can create a button without linking it to a destination, we recommend linking your button to something, so that your visitors are not confused if they click on a button and nothing happens. 

Tip: Select a button color that stands out from the rest of your page.

A bold color will draw a users’ eye directly to your button, making them more likely to click it.
