Recommended Posts

Is there a way to turn an image which is inside a post into a "download" button? I am able to make it a link that opens in a new window, but I would like it to downlaod a .pdf file when people click on it. Any suggestions?

To make it link to a file just put the url of the pdf document into the url field.


See - http://www.lenashore.com/2010/tutorials/wordpress/wordpress-how-to-link-images-to-files-or-urls/ which has an example at the bottom of the page.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      At the bottom of this post, there is a CSS only option that I have implemented into my site. It looks brilliant, and I am super grateful for that addition to the thread. The only issue I am having is that the code he provides does not include all of the styling options for the button itself.
      My question is, how might I go about editing the styling of the button i.e. shadows, every element of the coloring, and border colors?
      No big deal if it's not easy to fix. Happy to provide any further information if necessary.
      Kind regards,
      P.S. I have opened up the button in Google Dev window with Inspect and start editing it there, but it looks like there are some areas of the code that are connected to an external source (most likely bootstrap) and therefore I can't seem to edit it as much as I would like.

      I would like to add Google Analytics click tracking to the buttons on my site. I use the Pagelines shortcodes for the buttons. I was able to add the necessary header script easily using Custom Scripts.
      How can I insert the following onclick option to my buttons?
      onclick=”trackOutboundLink(‘http://www.domain.com’); return false;"
