Editing buttons

Buttons prompt your visitors to take the desired action, for example, contact you or request more information. Most of the blocks in the Block library contain one or two buttons.

There are two types of buttons: primary and secondary. The primary button has a colorful background that matches the primary color in your site’s color palette. The secondary button has a light background. You can change the color of your buttons by changing your site color palette.

Let’s learn to modify buttons.

Editing text on the button

Here’s how you can edit the button text:

  1. Click the button and highlight the text you want to replace.
