The Button module is exactly that, a button that you insert into your layout to lead visitors elsewhere within your site or to an external link. 


Here is one example of the Button module's style options:

There are also various options for hover behavior and click action -- see the next section for more information about how to set the click action.



Tips: 

  • If you add a background color to the Style tab, a Style section will appear with some additional options, including the ability to make the button transparent.
  • If you want to set a link for the button but don't have it right away, just enter a pound sign (#) for the URL so you can save the module.
  • Other modules that include buttons: Callout, Call to Action, Contact Form, Subscribe Form.




Click Action: Link or Lightbox


You can set the button's click action to either a link or a lightbox




Set the click action to a link


When you set Click action to Link, a Link section opens, where you can enter the URL to the link, whether the link opens in the same window or a new one, and whether to set the link to No Follow for SEO purposes. (If in doubt, leave it set to the default No, which means the search engines are allowed to follow the link)


Tip: If the Link target is another page or post on your site, you can click Select and start typing part of the page or post title in the Search box to see suggestions appear.



Set the click action to a lightbox


If you choose the Lightbox option, you can also choose whether the lightbox content will be based on HTML that you enter or a link to a video.
