WP CSS Button (CTA-Button Plugin)


The WordPress Plugin WP CSS BUTTON is a simple and easy to configurable WordPress plugin which allows to create CSS based CTA Buttons inside your blog.

I would be the happiest guy in the world if you write a little blogpost about my plugin 🙂

Just add the following line inside your blogpost

[CSSBUTTON target="" color="000000" textcolor="ffffff" float="left" newwindow="true"]Button Caption[/CSSBUTTON] 
  • target = The target the button will link to. Like the href tag in a hyperlink
  • color = The color property is optional. This is the background color of the button
  • textcolor = The color property is optional. This is te textcolor of the caption text.
  • float = position of the button inside your post
  • newwindow = Use true or false to open link in a new window. If attribute is not set, the link opens in the same window

The color will be set in hex codes like

  • FFFFFF for white
  • 000000 for black
  • FF0000 for red

WP CSS BUTTON will convert these line to a nice button

New in Version 1.4

  1. Param is the Caption
  2. Param is the Link
