  4. Once you have clicked on the button shortcode button, a dialog box will appear that allows you to style your button.
    • Style – The style options all correlate to the color of the button.  There are 7 color options:

    • Select Icon – you can select an icon to add to the button
    • Icon Alignment – you can align the button to the left or right of the button
    • Icon Color – make sure you select a color that has plenty of color contrast
    • Make Block – the button will expand to the full width of its containing element (the content area of the page, the width of a column or whatever the button sits inside.  It also forces the button to sit on it’s own line.  In other words, nothing else can sit on the same line as the button (even though it may appear that it can in the editor). You can use this option to make your buttons a uniform size.
    • Title – add the text you want displayed on the button here.
