How To Link A Button In Html

Adding a button to your website can improve its functionality and aesthetics. Buttons are not only used for forms but can also be used for navigational purposes. In this blog post, we’ll discuss how to create a button in HTML and link it to another webpage or resource.

Creating a Button Using <a> and <button> Tags

One way to create a button and link it to another page is to use the <a> (anchor) tag in combination with the <button> tag. The <a> tag allows you to create a hyperlink, and the <button> tag defines a clickable button.

Here’s an example of how to create a button that links to the “example.html” page:

    <a href="example.html">
        <button>Click me!</button>

Creating a Button Using <input> Tag

You can also create a linked button using the <input> tag with the type=”button” attribute. To make the button functional, you’ll need to add an onclick attribute with JavaScript.

Here’s an example of how to create a button that links to the “example.html” page using the <input> tag:

    <input type="button" value="Click me!" onclick="location.href='example.html';">

Using CSS for Styling

Now that you have a linked button, you may want to style it to match your website’s design. You can use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to style your button by adding a <style> tag inside the <head> section of your HTML document, or by linking to an external CSS file.

Here’s an example of how to style a button using a <style> tag:

        button {
            background-color: #4CAF50;
            border: none;
            color: white;
            padding: 15px 32px;
            text-align: center;
            text-decoration: none;
            display: inline-block;
            font-size: 16px;
            margin: 4px 2px;
            cursor: pointer;

With these techniques, you can create and style a linked button that enhances your website’s functionality and appearance. The possibilities are endless, so feel free to experiment with different button types and styles to find the perfect fit for your site.
