I’m trying to make a button block appear over an image on a landing page. I found a way to do it in elementor by setting a negative margin on the button block so it move up over the image block. Will this work in GP? video re elementor is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMq_rDaEtS0January 16, 2019 at 2:34 pm #784099LeoStaffCustomer Support
It should. Have you tried it?
GP doesn’t have control over the content when Elementor is activated for the page.January 16, 2019 at 2:56 pm #784126Nancy
Sorry – my question wasn’t clear. What I meant is how can I set a negative margin for a block containing a button WITHOUT using elementor? I’d prefer to keep things simpler by using WordPress with the GP theme, no elementor.January 16, 2019 at 3:33 pm #784146LeoStaffCustomer Support
Hmm I don’t think that will work with Gutenberg blocks.
Have you tried using this method I suggested before?
Not sure what your landing page looks like but perhaps you can use the header element module?
You should be able to find lots of different solutions when Googling “button on image” as well. Most of them aren’t theme specific solutions.January 16, 2019 at 3:40 pm #784149Nancy
I feel like I’m in over my head with the html – css solution you offered me before. I have googled the question but the elementor thing was the only thing useful to me that came up. I’m not a developer and have a very beginner’s understanding of css. I’m concerned that if I start editing the css it will have unforeseen complications. For example, will updating the GP theme later on be complicated by me editing the css? I saw warnings on https://www.w3schools.com about being careful about that and to use a child theme.
But I don’t even know how to set up a child theme and how that gets updated when GP updates.January 16, 2019 at 3:46 pm #784156LeoStaffCustomer Support
Your CSS will be saved through updates if you use one of these methods:
Here is some info on child theme:
Perhaps using Elementor or a page builder is also a good way to go? It’s designed for people who have limited coding knowledge.January 16, 2019 at 3:51 pm #784159Nancy
Thanks for your help and patience with my learner’s mind.January 16, 2019 at 3:54 pm #784162LeoStaffCustomer Support
Definitely takes some time to get a grasp on HTML and CSS.
If you are interested, this is the website I used to learn a few years ago:
If you don’t have the time then definitely give page builder a shot. It should save you some headache.
