    Hello,

    I am working on a website with the Sela Theme and front page setup like the demo.

    I would like to add a button in the box on the front page. Is this possible?

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is catycarrico.com.

    Hi catycarrico,

    Are you referring to the box behind the “SHARPER WRITING THAT DRIVES RESULTS” text? If so, a call to action button can be added with these steps:

    It will appear as a text link until CSS is added in My Sites > Customise > CSS:

    Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll be happy to help.

    Hi Gemma,

    Yes, you are correct about the location where I am trying to add the call to action button. I added the CSS and copied the code but for some reason it is still showing up as a text link.

    Would you mind helping? Thank you!

    Hi catycarrico,

    I added the CSS and copied the code but for some reason it is still showing up as a text link.

    Some extra text above the CSS was interfering with the button styles. I’ve removed it for you and the “Sign up for my newsletter” link is now a button :)

    #615f8b is the colour value for the purple background and can be replaced with any colour you like. Click “Publish” once you’ve added a different colour and that change will be applied to the button.

    I’ll be here if you have any questions.
