Often times, we want our hyperlinks to stylistically look like a button. Many UI frameworks, including Foundation, Bootstrap, and UIKit, have button class attributes to handle this for you. Okay, how do you add a class attribute to the opening
<a> tag of our “read more” link?
We need to know:
- The ID of the opening tag.
- Which attribute we want to add something to.
In our case, the ID is
'beans_post_more_link' and we want to add a class attribute. Depending upon your UI framework (or the styles you built), that class attribute will vary. Let’s say we use the built UIKit button class, which is
Putting it all together, our code would look like this:
// Make it look like a button. beans_add_attribute( 'beans_post_more_link', 'class', 'uk-button' );
Who needs copy/paste? Right. Writing code from scratch is fun!
