WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Styling a Group of Links as Buttons

The following document will walk you through how to restyle your Group of Links as buttons rather than a link list.

Note: This document assumes you already have an existing Group of Links menu to work with. If you do not, please follow the instructions listed in WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Group of Links Page Element to set up a Group of Links menu.


Make sure that the Group of Links menu that you are editing does not contain child/sub-menu items. 

If these are included, the button displays will not work. 

Best Practices

  • Keep the number of items to 10 or fewer. If more than 10, it's probably better to keep the Group of Links styles as text links.
  • Try to avoid links with too many words in them. 5 or fewer words is best.


  1. Navigate to the Group of Links menu you wish to restyle as buttons
  2. Toggle on the option to style the menu as buttons

    Select button style

  3. Select your button styles:
    1. Choose desired color from the dropdown list (red or blue)
    2. Choose your desired button size (default or large)
    3. Choose your desired button style (default or reversed)

      Group of links button options

  4. When finished, scroll to the top of the page and select the Publish/Update button to publish your changes
