Button Link Tab

Button Text - Type the wording you want displayed on your button (Learn More is the default text).

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 a URL here to turn the title into a clickable hyperlink. Use the magnifying glass to browse for a target page within the UBCMS.

Open in new window - This optional setting forces the clicked link to open in a new browser tab or window.

  • 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.
  • If the hyperlink goes to a downloadable file, an document icon will instead be shown as well as the file size if the file is on the same server.
