Styling buttons

Use the Site Styles panel to edit the appearance of buttons on your site. You can change the color, shape, and text style, which is a great way to match calls to action to your site's visual design.

To help you create a consistent design, any style changes you make to buttons affect most buttons on your site.

To learn more about adding buttons to your site, visit Using the Button Block.

These steps are for version 7.0. If your site's on version 7.1, visit Version 7.1 style and design options for help.

Alternate button colors

Depending on your template and how your site is set up, you may see an Alternate or (Overlay) tweak in the Site Styles section for your button. These options appears for buttons that display over:

  • Background images, such as Index section banners
  • Background areas with colors separate from the main background, such as footers or prefooters.

Use this option to help buttons stand out over these unique backgrounds. Depending on your button's style, you may also see other Alternate and (Overlay) tweaks.
