Prompt visitors to click a link.

This component has only one tab. It loads with the default 'Learn more' text displayed.
Tip: Learn how to make a quick link to the top of your page.
The default text "Learn more" is preloaded with a medium bullet.
This component requires a link (that field is highlighted in red).
Title - Enter your desired link text. Best practice is to use language that compels action.
Additional Label Text - Allows for a longer description to assist screen readers to give more context for repetitive buttons on the same page.
Link - Enter your hyperlink. This field is initially empty and must be filled to work properly.
Open in new window - Force the linked page to load in a new window (best practice for pages that are off your site). When that is selected, an additional icon will follow the linked text, to alert visitors that they will be taken to a new browser window, or even leave the current website.
Display Size: Three style options are provided
The Module "see all" style looks like the 'see all' link in the Flex Module, Carousel (or Lists).
In cases where a module component (e.g. flex module or carousel) does not meet your needs, this new option allows authors to create the look of a module using other components with the combination still matching other modules on the page.
This setting (e.g. in Call to Action and Button components) assists screen readers by giving more context for links with repetitive occurrence on the page. That is, if you have a page with several identically labeled links (e.g. ‘email’ links in a series of employee profiles, where brevity and repetition are desirable), the screen reader will apply the additional text to clarify the difference between these otherwise identically labelled links.
Best practice: decide on a consistent pattern that is easy for multiple people to reproduce and curate over time.
Links in many components can be set to open in a new browser window (or tab). The user can thus explore the new page, while preserving the source page (and your website) in the original tab. However, this can be confusing if the user does not realize a new tab has opened. They may become lost, confused how they arrived on that new page and unable to return to your site.
Best practice: let the user control their experience and stay in the same tab, with two notable exceptions:
