Similar to Descriptive links, Button links are clearly identified through their chosen name and bright blue background. This type of link is mainly used to attract the user to click on it and is usually placed at the end of entries.
The following are some suggestions on how to create a descriptive link for your web page:
Find the site/file you want to link.
On OU Campus Content Editor, highlight the text that you want to link and select the icon.
For images, simply click the image and select Insert/edit link.
A pop-up will open. You have two ways to link up a file, document, or page:
Select the Browse icon. A Internal link will open where you can look for the site/file that is on the OU Campus server to link it to the text. After selecting a site/file, a confirmation window will pop-up. Select OK.
Copy and paste the URL to the URL field.
Add a link Title. Title is only necessary if two or more links refer to different site/file but share the same link text.
This title will show up if a user hovers over a link and is also reas by a screen reader.
Text to Display: If you want to modify the clickable wording on your link, type in a new phrase in this field
Select the Class drop down menu and select the "(custom)" tab.
There are TWO types of buttons:
This button type has fixed dimenstions and is the most commonly used. Useful in most page layouts.
In order to use this button type, input "button" into the custom imput.
This button type will expand to the length of entry. Uncommonly used but still useful for certain desired page layouts.
In order to use this button type, input "button expanded" into the custom imput.
After adding a button link attribute, select the OK button. The button should now appear on your page.
Select the button at the top of the Content Editor to finalize your page.
