Need a Button Creator

I’m at my wits end with trying to make a small round button for use on my website. I can’t use a button that allows you to type text into it because I would have to create unusually wide buttons to accommodate several words. I can only find Stacks that allow me to create Button’s of this nature.

Can someone recommend a Stack that will allow me to create a small Button, say a quarter inch round or larger (Bullet size and larger) and then simply embed a link into it without having to type text? Nothing fancy needed. Just a basic, round Button that may have a Hover action upon clicking.

If you are using Foundation…Here ya go:

Scott. Demo’d Big White Duck. Can’t create a Circle button. No demo for Sweet Button but I have watched the demo video and it seems as though you can only round the edges of a rectangle. I really need a true Button in the form of a Circle for my site. I used to be able to easily find such Buttons for Windows software many years ago before I switched to Mac and specifically RW. But now I can’t find such a Button maker.

I may be able to get by with a small square Button that is perhaps 25 square pixels or a little less. But Pill shaped, oval or rectangle is not going to work for the site I am building. Completely round or possibly a square and they need to be small due to the large number of links on some pages.

You can definitely do it with buttonplus2

You could always just use an image and add a link (and even css for button states if you throw it in a css box)

Why not

Just use another drawing program to draw the button?
Then use that image?

Thanks for the additional ideas. Will try Buttonplus2 next and see what I can create.

BTW. Just dug up a old Rage Software button maker circa 2007. Somehow I saved it all these years even though I had forgotten about it. No question I can create the kind of Button I need with that. Looks like I can find a Hover Effect Stack for RW that will allow me to use that program for a round button too.

Chuck. Will look into your idea as well.

I just did a sample…see if this would work for you…
I used Foundation, Ivy 2, Grummage 2 Col and ButtonPlus2
You just said you needed lots of links…

What about this stack…?

This should also work:


Image Wizard is perfect for what I am trying to accomplish now that I found the Rage Button Maker still somehow works with my new 2018 Mini. Can’t believe software that is 12 years old still fully functions on the new OS.

Have a slightly different issue now that I need to address. I need to put the Buttons to the left side of the page. Using the Media Theme by Will Woodgate for this project. I then need to type in the description of the link to the right of the Button. I can’t seem to get Image Wizard to work if I use a Floating Image and Text Stack. It will work if I use Columns but then the Button is far to the left to the text.

How can I get the Button to the left of the Text to the right and not have several inches of space between the Button and Text?

Easy to do with the “SmartColumns2 Stacks” by Maratha:
Or with the " BluePrint SideBar" stack which comes with the “Blueprint” stack:
Simply set the left column/sidebar to a fixed pixel width (the width of the button) and you’re good to go…

Thanks for the suggestions. I finally was able to do exactly what I needed for this site.
