Left Column Content Widgets – Button

This article will explain how to implement the “Button” widget on the left column section of your page. 

Step 1: Select the page you’re going to update and click “Edit.”

Note: Make sure that the page you want to edit is highlighted in the site content menu.

Step 2: The editing pop-up will display basic information about your page in the first section. In the next section, you will see regions that represent different areas on your page that you can edit. Since we are focusing on left column content, select the corresponding region.

Step 3: Once you click on left column, it will expand and give you the option to select a widget. Select “Button.”

Step 4:  Select what type of link you want.

Once, you select the link type, you will now be able to add more information about the link to complete your button. For the label, make sure to keep it short to avoid inconsistent button sizes.

If you are adding more than one button click the green + icon in the upper right hand corner of the widget:Click on the green plus sign in the upper-right corner of the button widget

Follow Step 4 above to complete the new button. A common mistake some users make is adding multiple button widgets instead of adding a new button to an existing button widget.

Step 5: Click “Save & Preview” to see the changes you have made. If you need to make more edits, follow Steps 1 and 2 again to go back to your widget.

If you are satisfied with your content, go ahead and submit the page for approval and you are done.
