Styling menu buttons?

Thread began 8/10/2011 8:05 am by theo.twisk429002 | Last modified 10/25/2011 2:56 pm by Jason Byrnes | 2252 views | 7 replies |

Styling menu buttons?

Based on the Overview info on CSS Button Styler I was under the impression that it could also be used for styling Menu buttons. When I use button styler however I only see the possibility to style Form buttons. Has anybody else tried to style Menu buttons with button styler?

button styler will only style form buttons:
<input type="button"....

menus dont actually use buttons, most css menus use unordered lists with anchor tag links:
<ul>
<li><a href="mypage.php">home</a></li>
</ul>


if you want an extension for creating css based menu, see the CSS Menu Writer Extension:

Jason, strictly speaking I agree that links are not buttons. But I cannot imagine that you are unaware of the fact that a lot of people talk about menu buttons (71.000.000 hits with google for "menu buttons css") and that css3 possibilities are also embraced to style links as buttons with rounded corners etc.. So not being more explicit about this in de Overview information about CSS button styler can easily give people the wrong impression.

My advice to WebAssist would be to be clearer about this in the Overview.

Links to Buttons

I had the same problem - hence my post regarding links to the buttons created.

Had I known that this was form-related only, I would not have bought this (as far as I am concerned) usless add-on. I also think the advertising is less than explicit! What I resent is the time wasted trying to find a solution, and feeling like a dummy at the same time.

I have to agree. I dont think I would have bought this extension if it was only for form buttons. I was hoping it could make any text link into a nice css button.

I would not have bought it either, had I known it was just a form button creator. Yet when it was suggested that the description on the sales page needed updated, Jason said in Aug. that he would send that request to the marketing department. Here we are in late Oct. and it is still there and confusing people like me into buying it.

I would like to request a refund based on the faulty advertising of this item.

one work around would be to make your links into buttons, for example:

<a href="index.html"><input type="button" value="Home" /></a>





another work around would be to use the onClick event to make the button go to another page:

<input type="button" value="Home" onclick="location.href='index.html'">
