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.
I determined that a shortcode button in a text/HTML widget box was my best option. I also needed the buttons to fill out the width of any of the PageBuilder columns, so adding "display:block;" via CSS was a must.
I tried MaxButtons first, and though I preferred it over Standout for the color customizations, I found it to be a bit cumbersome overall.
On the other hand, I can implement any number of Standout buttons in a text/HTML widget - with the necessary CSS in style.css - and have it look correct.
The colors and button shapes are not as flexible out of the box as other plugins, and perhaps slightly understyled by comparison, but this simplicity works in its favor - and they'll also stand the test of time, while funkier designs will quickly date themselves.
