How Do I Center a Button in Webflow?

Are you struggling with aligning your buttons in the center of your Webflow website? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of centering a button using HTML and CSS in Webflow. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Create a Button

Before we can center the button, we need to have a button element on our webpage. To create a button in HTML, you can use the <button> tag or the <a> tag with appropriate styling. Here’s an example of how to create a basic button:

<button class="center-button">Click Me</button>

In this example, we’ve added the class “center-button” to our button element. This class will be used later for centering the button.

Step 2: Add Custom CSS Class

To center our button, we will use custom CSS. In Webflow, you can add custom CSS classes to elements easily. Here’s how:

  • Select your button element on the canvas.
  • Navigate to the Styles panel on the right-hand side.
  • Add a new class by clicking on the “+” icon next to “Class”. For this example, let’s name it “center-button”.
  • Navigate to the Custom Code tab within your Styles panel.
  • Add the following CSS code:
.center-button {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;

In the CSS code above, we’ve set the display property to flex. This allows us to easily center the button both horizontally and vertically.

The justify-content property is set to center, which centers the button horizontally. The align-items property is also set to center, which centers the button vertically.

Step 3: Apply CSS Class to Button

Now that we have our custom CSS class, it’s time to apply it to our button element. Select the “center-button” class we created earlier.

Once you’ve applied the class, you should see your button centered on your webpage! If it’s not centered, double-check that you followed all the steps correctly and that you applied the class correctly.

Troubleshooting Tips:

If your button is still not centered, here are a few things you can try:

  • Check for conflicting styles: Make sure there are no other CSS styles affecting the positioning of your button.
  • Clean up your code: Sometimes, extra or incorrect HTML markup can interfere with CSS styling. Double-check your code for any errors.
  • Use browser developer tools: Inspect your button element using the browser’s developer tools to see if any CSS styles are overriding your centering styles.

That’s it! You’ve successfully centered a button in Webflow using HTML and CSS.

Experiment with different button styles and sizes to create visually appealing and centered buttons for your website. Happy coding!
