Faq

Can I make a link to anything ?

Yes. Each element : page, post, faq, team member, media (photos, pdf, etc.) has a unique id.
By using the id attribute, WordPress will retrieve the correct link.
[button text="click here" id="12"] will link to the element with id 12. If it’s a page, it will be a link to the page (id:12). If it’s a pdf, it will link to the pdf (id:12). And so on….

You will find the id by browsing the page/post/faq/team/media menu.

Nothing is showned, what am i doing wrong?

You must set an id or an url in order to trigger the button in frontend. Without an id or an url to link to, the button won’t appear. For example : [button text="click here" id="12"] or [button text="click here" url="https://vanois.be"]

I just see a small green rectangle, what happens?

You must set a text attribute in order to display something. For example : [button text="click here" id="12"]

When clickin to the button, I’ve got a 404 error Page not Found

You set a link to a page which is not yet published. If you use the shortcode [button text="click here" id="12"], you must ensure that the page with id:12 is Published (not Pending or Draft) or an 404 error Page not found will occur.

Can I align the button on the right side?

The [button] shortcode is behaving like a text character. You can aligned it to the left, to the right, to the center, like any other word.
