    Hi,
    Firstly I need to point out that i'm not very good at html and the back end of DNN, I just mainly use modules and insert text and images, but i'm trying to learn a bit more.
    I'm using DNN 9.3.2
    I am using a theme called Porto and is has some shortcoes that can be used.
    I'm trying to make a button open up a pdf that I have on my server.

    The shortcode is: 

    < button class="btn btn-primary" type="button">Default Size

    But how do i modify this code to open a pdf.


    I have done it with a text link as followes:

     

    < a href="/Portals/17/WorcesterPA%20Directions.pdf" target="_blank">Click here for location map and parking instructions

     

    I have been trying to add the < a> tag inside the < button>tag but I just cant get it to work.

     

    < button>Any ideas, i'm sure it something simple but it has me stumped...:(

    Kind regards,
    Matt

          Normally the styling depends on the CSS class not the type of element.
          So

          < a class="btn btn-primary" href="...">Open Pdf< /a>
          Should work
