How Do I Create a Custom Button on Weebly?

Last updated on December 31, 2022 @ 1:58 am

Weebly is a great platform for creating a website, and one of the things that makes it so user-friendly is the ability to add custom buttons. Buttons can be used to add navigation, call to action, or even just for decoration. In this article, we’ll show you how to create a custom button on Weebly, and how to style it using HTML.

Creating a custom button on Weebly is easy. Simply follow these steps:

  1. First, log in to your Weebly account and go to the page where you want to add the button.
  2. In the “Content” section, click on the “Add Button” element.
  3. A pop-up will appear with options for your button. You can choose the type of button (link, download, or submit), the color, the size, and the text.
  4. You can also add an icon to your button by clicking on the “Icon” tab. Once you’ve customized your button, click on the “Insert” button.

Your button will now appear on the page. You can move it around by clicking and dragging it, or change its position by clicking on the “Move” icon in the top-left corner of the button.

PRO TIP: Weebly is a popular website builder that allows users to create custom buttons for their website. However, there are some risks associated with using Weebly’s custom button feature. First, it is important to understand that custom buttons can only be created for Weebly websites that are hosted on Weebly’s platform. This means that if you use a custom button on a self-hosted Weebly website, the button will not work. Additionally, custom buttons may not work as expected on mobile devices. Finally, Weebly’s custom button feature is only available to paid subscribers. If you are using a free Weebly account, you will not be able to use this feature.

To style your button using HTML, simply click on the button to select it and then click on the “HTML” icon in the top-right corner of the editor. This will open up the code for your button, where you can add CSS styles between the “<style>” tags. For example, you could add the following CSS to change the color of your button:

button {
background-color: #ff0000;

You can also style other aspects of your button, such as the text or border. For more information on CSS styles, check out our guide to CSS.

That’s all there is to creating and styling a custom button on Weebly! Buttons are a great way to add interactivity and visual interest to your website, so experiment with different styles and see what works best for you.


Creating a custom button on Weebly is easy and only requires a few steps. You can use HTML code to style your buttons however you like.
