Buttons have a great impact on your website, and buttons also help you to boost your conversions. These are highly noticeable, which helps your visitors to get attracted to a desire interaction.

In this post, I am going to show you how to add buttons in WordPress. After reading the full post, you will be able to add and customize buttons. Let’s begin then.

How To Add Buttons In WordPress

There are several ways to add buttons in WordPress. Here I am showing you the easiest methods. 

Add Buttons Using Block Editor

The block editor comes with the button block. You can use this block as many times you want and create as many as buttons you want.

First, edit an existing post or create a new one where you want to add a button. On your editor screen, click on the ‘+’ icon to add a new block. Then search for ‘Buttton’ and click on it. 

Now you have successfully added a button in your editor. Type anything on the text area to enter your button text. Hover your cursor above the button block and click on the link. In this field, you can paste your redirection link.

After pasting the link, don’t forget to hit the Enter button from your keyboard. Now click on the button again and check on the left option bar. From here, you will be able to customize your button in the way you want. 

You can change the style to Fill or outline, alter color settings, formatting, border, etc. If you want a more customizable button, then you may consider installing Ultimate blocks.


It provides you more customizations to your regular button. 

Add Buttons Using Classic Editor

By default, there is no easy way to add a button in the classic editor. But you can add a button using any of the below three options.

  1. Using HTML/CSS code
  2. Using Shortcodes
  3. Using Plugin 

The first two choices may not be beginner-friendly; therefore, I am showing to add a button with a plugin.

At the very beginning, install and activate the plugin called Forget About Shortcode Buttons. If you do not know to install one, simply check out this guide on how to install a WordPress plugin

Now edit an existing post or create a new one. Then click on ‘Insert Button’ situated in the top bar. 

A popup window will appear, where you can design your button. In the ‘Text’ field, place your button text, and in the ‘URL’ field, place your link. 

From the Icon tab, choose your icon. You can change buttons font color by clicking on the first color box, and background color by clicking on the second color box. 

Choose the shape and size of the button. In the end, click on Update, and you are done.


I hope you have understood both procedures, and now you will be able to add your own button to your WordPress site. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I will be happy to answer your questions. If you liked this post, share it, and don’t forget to check more how to guides.
