Cool tip - insta-buttons

Have to share this - because its too much fun and allows for more design tweakery...

buttons!

This theme will instantly create a blue button from a weblink if you go into Advanced and change the ID to "button".

Want colour? try "button-green", "button-orange", and "button-grey"

Have fun with making pretty things!

Yes is one of the awesome advantages of Bootstrap.

I'd like to add those functions into the editor toolbar at some point.

In the meantime you can do cool things manually as you mentioned.

Hi Leo,

You need to add a little bit of code through the raw HTML button to get the button. A link starts with an angle bracket <, followed by an a.  After that piece of code, paste the following

id="button"

You don't need to change anything else.

Try again, I think you'll like the result smile

Happy Mooting!

Lindy

Hmmm. Permissions?

Tried both adding "button" to the ID tag in the WYSIWYG editor and also adding the code in the HTML. Both times it gets stripped.

Button update!

Lindy has found that there is a weird permission-thingy going on.

Because 2.5 is new, and the theme is new, and using bootstrap is new... we will be setting our coding attack-dogs at it until the code submits.
