Works with shortcodes, but "display: block;" has to be applied for every button
By , for WP 3.9.1

I needed a button to work with SiteOrigin's PageBuilder. PB's built in button widget does not look or work good at all, and other button plugins were not integrating properly with PB in widget form.

MaxButtons worked for me as a shortcode, and it looked good (though long buttons will split themselves and overlap in a very ugly manner). Applying "display:block;" fixed this, but there's a problem: However, each button is generated with its own CSS.

Hence, the following code:

a.maxbutton-1 {

...will only apply to the very first button you generate, not the second, third, fourth, etc. These additional buttons are generated as a.maxbutton-2, a.maxbutton-3, etc, requiring a new class conditional entry in style.css upon the generation of every button. This is frustrating, not to mention a step that can be easily overlooked.

I chose to use Standout CSS3 Buttons instead, which look similar - if, unfortunately, not as spiffy - and are generated off one class name which allows "display:block;" to automatically apply to all buttons generated.

Additionally, the MaxButtons interface has a bug where the button preview does not show the background gradient chosen. This is an additional stumbling block, especially when one has to go to the MaxButtons interface to create every new button - link and all.

Works Perfectly!

Pretty easy to set up once I learned that you have to first create the button and then save it somewhere else besides the page I wanted to put it on.

To "doringo": This button works just fine on my responsive site.

Too time-consuming and not responsive
By , for WP 3.7.1

I found the button generator too complicated. And when I finally got a button ready, it wasn't responsive.

Excellent Plugin. Needs Responsive Support Soon!
By , for WP 3.7.1

Works with WP 3.7.1 and WooThemes Canvas. To retain a 5-star rating of this plugin, MaxButtons needs to soon support Responsive design (i.e., automatically resize the look of the button to fit all screen sizes). Currently, a large button / box on your site does not resize itself when you view the button / box on a smaller screen size (such as a smartphone). More and more people are using smartphones now to view websites.

Excellent and adaptable
By , for WP 3.7.1

A magical little plugin that lets you create quite elaborate custom buttons. Fully adaptable with colours, gradients, shadows. Nice copying facility, so when you have one button design you like you can easily make variations on it without having to go back to square one every time.

Works as stated
By , for WP 3.6.1

Lots of options- OK to have a paid version when free one is so complete.
