How To Use

  1. Click the MaxButtons page from the admin menu.
  2. Click the Add New button.
  3. Fill out and select the options needed to build your button.
  4. Once you’re ready, click Save.
  5. A shortcode will be generated (ex: [maxbutton id=”17″] or [maxbutton name=”My Button Name”]).
  6. Use the shortcode anywhere in your content.

You can also pass the button text and URL as parameters in the shortcode, giving you even greater flexibility. For example, if you want to create a set of buttons that look exactly the same, except for the text and URL, you could do something like this:

[maxbutton id=”17″ text=”Search Google” url=””]

[maxbutton name=”MaxButtons Button Name” text=”Search Yahoo” url=””]

Another parameter you can give the shortcode is window, which tells the button whether or not to open the URL in a new window (by default the button opens the URL in the current window). To do so you always give the window parameter the value “new”, shown below. Anything else will open the button URL in the current window.

[maxbutton id=”17″ window=”new”]

You can also use the nofollow parameter, which will add a rel=”nofollow” attribute to the button when set to true, as shown below (the default is false):

[maxbutton id=”17″ nofollow=”true”]

NOTE: Passing parameters to the shortcode overrides those settings saved as part of the button.
