One of the most basic skills you’ll need to learn when editing your website is how to create links.
Turn a link into a button
To turn a link into a button, go to the Text tab of your post or page editing window and look for the link you just put in your page. You’ll simply add class=”button” into that line of code, like this:
You’ll end up with a button that looks similar to this:
Please note, your button will likely be a different color and may be smaller. The style of your button is dictated by your website stylesheet which has been customized just for your business.
Make a link open in a new tab or window
Sometimes you might want a client to be able to keep one page open in their browser while being able to easily view another page, whether it’s on your site, or an external site. This is where opening links in new tabs or windows comes in handy.
It’s super simple to do! When you first create a link, just click on the little button that looks like a gear, then check “Open link in a new tab.”
If you find that you frequently link to external sites, you might want to use a plugin that will automatically make any links to external sites open in new tabs. My favorite is WP External Links.
Link a picture
If you’d like to make a picture clickable so it goes to a link, click on the picture, then click on the same Insert/edit link button you clicked on to create a text link earlier, and follow the same steps to save the link.
