How to Customise Your Buttons

A Button - though small - plays a big role on your website. It grabs the visitor’s attention and serves as a gateway for soliciting an action. Whether it is to give further details or to sell your product, your goal is to get them to click it.

The template you choose in Sitebeat includes Button Features with preset text and design - which you can easily customise. Change the text and appearance of your website's Button Features using the steps below:

  1. Log In to access the Sitebeat dashboard.
  2. Under My Sites, click the Edit Site option on the website or project card that you wish to manage.
  3. Access the editing options for the Button Feature using the applicable steps:

    If Button is in the Menu Block:

    The Menu Block is the top section of your website where the menu is located for most templates, and depending on the template, a Button is pre-added in this Block.

    To customise this Button, hover your mouse pointer over it and click Edit. A pop-up box will appear where you can customise the following:
