The Rainmaker Platform comes with code built into the themes that allow you to create ‘call to action’, or CTA buttons. You can add the buttons anywhere on your site, including your posts, pages, text widgets and landing pages.
In this tutorial I will show you how to add a link to a piece of text in your content and add a small snippet of code to the link to turn it into a CTA button.
Video Instructions – click play below
To create the button, we take a normal link added to our content, and add a ‘class’ the link using the ‘Text’ tab in the content editing area. Rainmaker will detect the class added to the code and transform the linked text into a button.
Follow the text instructions below.
1. Edit the content you are adding the button to. Place our cursor where you want the button to appear, and write your call to action text. Next highlight the text and in the visual editor, select the ‘link’ icon. Add the URL for the call to action into the ‘URL’ field and click ‘Insert Link’ once you are done.
2. Once the link is added, click on the ‘Text’ tab in the top right of the content editing box. This will reveal the HTML code of the link text. Place your cursor after the opening link HTML tag and add class=”button”.
3. Save the content. View the content and the link will now appear as a button.
And that is it!
