WordPress has it’s own button block, so why would you use the Atomic Block button?
Size and shape
Sometimes you need a small or large button. The WordPress 5 button block doesn’t have a size option. But as you can see from the buttons above, the Atomic Blocks AB Button block goes from small to extra large.
The AB Button block has three shape options. Square, rounded square and circular.
But no outline style
The Atomic Blocks AB Button block does not have an outline style at the time of writing this post. However, the Atomic Blocks plugin is still new so it’s possible that more styles and features will be added in the future.
I made the button below using the standard WordPress button block. NOT Atomic Blocks!
Toolbar in AB Blocks
As with all blocks there are two places to look for settings. When a block is selected, a toolbar appears immediately above the block. (Unless you’ve changed the WordPress settings.)
The AB Button block has options to align the button left, center or right.
You type your button text directly into the button and add the link URL in the box below the button.
Block settings for the AB Button block
- Open link in new window: if you’re linking to a page inside your own website, leave this toggled off. If you’re linking to a different website, you might want to toggle the new window option on.
- Button Size: choose from small, medium, large & extra large.
- Button Shape: choose from square, rounded square & circular.
- Button Color: choose the background color for your button.
- Button Text Color: make sure you choose a text color that is easy to read over the button background color.
- Advanced: Additional CSS Classes can be added here, if you understand CSS.
