Buttons

Overview

A Button element is very useful when you want to link different sections of the site or make a file available to download. In this tutorial, let’s take a look at the Button element usage and how to customize the button element.

View examples of the button element.

Default Styles

Enfold comes with many pre-styled buttons. Button styles can be changed from the color tab which can be accessed by clicking on the button element in the advanced layout builder. Below are some of the pre-styled button elements that come with the enfold theme.

Icons can be easily added to the buttons from the button element options.

Code Snippets

How to use the snippets?

NOTE: If the code snippets produce a different result on your site, it may be because the settings on your site are different or due to any customization already added to achieve a similar result. Please try removing your customization if any and feel free to change the values in the example codes to suit your design.

Shortcode

A button can be added anywhere on the site where you can type text using the button shortcode. Example: The below shortcode can be used to add buttons to your slider caption.

 [av_button label='Click me' link='manually,http://' link_target='' size='small' position='center' icon_select='yes' icon='ue800' font='entypo-fontello' color='theme-color' custom_bg='#444444' custom_font='#ffffff' av_uid='av-5obiu2i'] 

Button Usage

Link to a page or post

Button elements can be linked to an auto-generated list of page, posts, category or you can enter the custom link in the button element options tab.

Click to call

To create a tap to call button, add your phone number with “tel:” as a prefix in the Button Link without the http://. Your link should look like this “tel:+91-7377441443” and it’s ready!

Click to email

To create a tap to email button add your email in the Button Link without http://. Your link should look like this “emial@domain.com”  that’s it!

Please Note: By default, some browsers do not handle the mailto links. Check your browser is set up correctly to handle the mailto links please follow the steps mentioned below.

Steps:

1. If you are using chrome go to Chrome Settings > Content Settings > Manage Handlers

2. If Manage Handler setting is empty click on the double diamond icon that appears when you first log in to Gmail and select “Allow” mail.google.com to open email links and repeat the first step.

This should open the email links in the browser.

If you like to set up on other browsers or still have any issue check the mailto links is set up as mentioned here.

Click to download a file

To link a file which can be downloaded on clicking the button, please follow the below steps:

  1. Upload and browse the file in WordPress > Media > Library and copy the file URL.
  2. Click on the Button element to open the options and look for “Button Link?”.
  3. Select “Set Manually” and paste the file URL
  4. Save the Button options.
  5. Save the page or post to view changes.

NOTE: Depending on the browser settings of the users, By default some files like .txt and .pdf may just open in the browser instead of opening a download dialogue box.

To force download a .txt, .pdf or similar files when a button is clicked, we need to tell the browser to initiate a download instead of opening the file in the browser.

  1. Upload and browse the file in WordPress > Media > Library and copy the file URL.
  2. Click on the Button element to open the options and look for “Button Link?”.
  3. Select “Set Manually” and paste the file URL.
  4. Add a custom class name “force-download” to the button element.
  5. Add the below code to your child theme functions.php
  6. Save the Button options.
  7. Save the page or post to view changes.

Click to open a lightbox

Button elements can open a lightbox window and display any content such as an image, slider or a whole page with many elements. Let’s walk you through the steps to setup a lightbox link.

  1. Create a new page and add your lightbox content which we will display when the button is clicked.
  2.  For aesthetic purpose hide the header and footer from the page or post sidebar > layout options.
  3. Copy the new page URL and set the link manually in the button element options.
  4. lastly, add “?iframe=true” to the end of the link.

example : If the new page created to display in the lightbox is http://kriesi.at the link to open it in lightbox will be http://kriesi.at?iframe=true

Add an onClick event to a button element

To track button elements on click events, add a custom class name called “button-click” to the button element and add your click event for example code from Google analytics or Facebook pixel to the below code and copy it to your child theme functions.php

Toggle a section when a button is clicked

Are you ready to test the onClick function we discussed earlier?

Yeah! Let’s toggle a color section element when a button element is clicked.

  1. Enable custom CSS class name from Enfold > Layout Builder > Developer options.
  2.  Create a new page or a post and add a button element and give it a class name “toggle-button”.
  3. Add a color section and some content inside it and give it an ID “toggle-section” and class name “hide-me”.

Our page structure is ready. Using jQuery and CSS we can now make the color section show or hide when the button is clicked.

  1. First, hide the color section on the page by adding below CSS to your site.
    
    .hide-me {
    	display: none;
    }
    
  2. Using a jQuery function we can toggle the “hide-me” class of the color section when the button is clicked. Add the below code to your child theme functions.php

Add buttons to widget area in sidebar or footer

We can add buttons to a page or post from the layout builder but how do we add the buttons in places like the sidebar, footer or header area where the layout builder option is not available?

The answer is simple, yes! you may have guessed it already.

  1. First, set up a button element on a new page.
  2. Once you like how your button looks, go ahead and enable the debug mode.
  3. Copy the button element shortcode from the debug window.
  4. We can use the button element shortcode in any text area to display the button. Go to WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets and select the widget area, for example, a sidebar, footer or header area.
  5. Now, add a text widget area to sidebar, footer or header and paste the button shortcode.

Customization

Let’s make customization a bit easy for our self by adding a custom CSS class name “my-custom-button” to the button element. Please enable custom CSS class name support from Enfold theme options > Layout Builder

Button fonts

Font style ( size, color, family )

Font size: Font size for the button element can be changed site-wide from Enfold Options > Advanced Styling > Misc > Buttons > Font size. Also, depending on the button size set in the button options the font size changes as well. Below are the font size mentioned for different size buttons:


/* Button font size */
.avia-button.avia-size-large { font-size: 16px; } /* for large buttons */
.avia-button.avia-size-medium { font-size: 16px; } /* for medium buttons */
.avia-button.avia-size-small { font-size: 17px; } /* for small buttons *

Font color: To change the button font color, double-click the button element and open the button options and switch to the Color tab > Custom color

Font family:  The buttons inherit the default body font family set in the theme options general styling.

Using CSS we can change all of the default styles.



/* Button font style */

.my-custom-button a.avia-button .avia_iconbox_title {
     font-size:30px;
     color: gold;
     font-family: 'Cookie', Helvetica, sans-serif;
}

Responsive button labels

If you wish to change the font size of the button elements on the mobile device please use the below CSS



/* Responsive button labels */

/* Font size on desktop */

.my-custom-button a.avia-button .avia_iconbox_title {
     font-size:30px;
}

/* Font size on mobile */
@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {
	.my-custom-button a.avia-button .avia_iconbox_title {
    	font-size:14px;
    }	
}

On hover

The below CSS can be used to change the font style on hover.



/* Button font style on hover */

.my-custom-button:hover a.avia-button .avia_iconbox_title {
     color: gold;
}

Button Border

Remove default border

The default buttons have a bottom border and it is hardly noticeable because the border color is the same as the background color of the button. Use the below CSS to remove the default button border.



/* Remove button border */
.my-custom-button .avia-button {
     border: none !important;
}


Transparent button border

Border width for the transparent buttons can be set from Enfold Options > Advanced Styling > Misc > Buttons > Border Width

Custom border style

Let’s use the CSS box-shadow to add borders to the button element. The CSS border is set outside the element and cause the button to move a few pixels when used only on hover. Whereas, the box-shadow is set inside the element and does not cause the buttons to move on hover.

To set the box-shadow effect we will first remove the default border and use CSS to set the box shadow effect that looks like a border.



/* Remove button border */
.my-custom-button .avia-button {
     border: none !important;
}

/* Box-shadow border */
.my-custom-button a.avia-button {
     box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 0px 4px  gold !important;
}

On hover

Using the box-shadow effect we can set a border style on hover. We are not using the CSS border property to set the border because the border is set outside the element and takes extra space. This will cause the button elements to move a few pixels when we display the border only on hover.



/* Remove button border */
.my-custom-button .avia-button {
     border: none !important;
}

/* Box-shadow border */
.my-custom-button a.avia-button:hover {
     box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 0px 4px  gold !important;
}

Button Icon

Color

Button icon color is inherited from the button font color. The button font color can be set in the button options > color tab > custom color. To change the icon color separately please use the below CSS



/* Button Icon color */

.my-custom-button a.avia-button .avia_button_icon {
	color:gold;
}

Size

Button icon size is inherited from the button font size. To change the icon size please sue the below CSS



/* Button icon size */

.my-custom-button a.avia-button {
	display : flex;
	align-items: center; /* Vertical align text and icon */
        justify-content: center;
}

.my-custom-button a.avia-button .avia_button_icon {
	font-size: 40px!important; /* Button icon size */
	line-height: 40px; /* Vertical align icon*/
	color:gold;
}

	background: lightblue !important;
}

Gradient

Add gradient button background



/* Gradient button background */

.my-custom-button a.avia-button {
	background: #67B26F;  /* fallback for old browsers */
	background: -webkit-linear-gradient(to right, #4ca2cd, #67B26F);  /* Chrome 10-25, Safari 5.1-6 */
	background: linear-gradient(to right, #4ca2cd, #67B26F); /* W3C, IE 10+/ Edge, Firefox 16+, Chrome 26+, Opera 12+, Safari 7+ */
}

Image

To set a background image to the button use the below CSS code and edit the image path.



/* Button background */

.my-custom-button a.avia-button {
	background: url('image.jpg');
}

Transparency

You can choose to display the transparent background button with a light or dark border from the button element options > color tab.

/* Button opacity */
.my-custom-button a.avia-button {
   background: rgba(13,23,56, .45)	!important;
}

On Hover

We can change the background color on mouse hover by using the below code.



/* Background on hover */
.my-custom-button a.avia-button:hover {
   background: rgba(13,23,56, .45)	!important;
}
