Support » Themes and Templates » [Resolved] Inserting link in button shortcode
5 years, 6 months ago
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!
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.
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 🙂
