How to Add Call to Action Buttons in WordPress (without Code)

Are you wanting to add a call to action button in your WordPress posts and pages? Buttons are an awesome way to boost conversions on your site with a visually appealing call to action. In this video, we will show you how to add a call to action button on your WordPress site without code!

To start, we will edit a new post or an existing post and click the add bloc button which should look like a + symbol. In the options for blocks, we want to search for button in the available option, it can also be found in the layout elements section for the time being.

The button should allow you to change the text of the button and add the URL the button will redirect to. WordPress also gives the tools to change the alignment, button style, and colors associated with the button. Now, when you publish the post or page the button will be visible on the page and go to the URL set for it to redirect.

For those wanting to use the classic editor of WordPress, you will use the Forget About Shortcode Buttons plugin found here:


With the plugin installed and activated you can now go into your post/page editor that is using the classic editor and click the new Insert Button option in their editor. This will bring up the editor for this button that allows you to customize the style, text, replace it with an icon, and URL the button is linked to.

If you’re looking to give your visitors the ability to call you, we would recommend starting by installing the WP Call Button plugin found here:


With the plugin installed and activated you can add your phone number under Settings, WP Call Button. The plugin will give you the option to customize the text, location, color, and visibility settings for when the button should appear.
