[resolved] Inserting link in button shortcode (3 posts)

    Hi there,

    I'm sorry if this is an utterly stupid question – I am utterly new to WordPress, being a writer by trade.
    I am using Paradise theme, which supplied shortcodes, inc ones for buttons, like so:

    [btn url title align=left target] Button Text [/btn]

    My issue is that I don't know where to insert a hyperlink in this. If I try either side of "Button Text", it knocks the coloured button background off, and anywhere else seems not to work.

    I strongly suspect I'm being a bit of a div, but any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Linsey

    i don't know the theme, but from a logical point of view, i would try:

    [btn url="http://yourlink" title align=left target] Button Text [/btn]

    as this is a commercial theme, have you tried to ask at the forum of your theme seller?

    imho, any premium theme with options should have a read-me page to explain how to use them.

    Hi there,

    Thankyou SO much – this is indeed the correct code. Sorry I couldn't work that out.

    Yes, the instruction pages are a little thin, but they *do* have their own support forum, which I forgot about too.

    Thanks for not laughing at my question :)
