New GW Drupal Feature: Buttons

April 25, 2016

If you’re using the GW Drupal classic or editorial theme to run your website, you can now present buttons on your site to highlight key actions without creating a graphic.

There are a variety of size and style options available to ensure that each button you add to your site fits with other content close to it, such as graphics, photos or text.

The buttons can be placed:

  • on your homepage

  • in the right or left sidebar of a page

  • in the main body of a page

Examples in the Sidebar

Columbian College Undergraduate Admissions Page: In this example, a button is used to replace a sidebar graphic and the revised text is simple and direct.
