Adding button to nav menu without using secondary nav

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://gregorylassale.com


I use the Brine template and am trying to have the menu item on the right ("FR") styled as a button. 

That menu item toggles between the French and English versions of the site, and because the site is multilingual and already uses a secondary nav for the the French version, I can't go the secondary nav option route. Plus I need that same menu item on the French version ("EN") also styled as a button anyway.

Is there any way to accomplish this without code ? If not, could anyone help me with it ? I guess I would need a piece of code that would style only one item in the nav bar as button and leaves the rest alone. 

Thanks in advance for your help !

Sure!  Instead of width, you may want to use padding to add space between the text and the border edges. The first number will be the top/bottom spacing, second one is left/right spacing.

.Header-nav-inner>a:last-child {
  border: 1px solid white;
  padding:5px 25px;

Hello again. For some reason, changing the padding values did not seem to do anything, so I set the width at 50px and centered the text. 

One more thing I forgot. I'd like the color of the button and text to change on hover: text to black and button to white. Is that possible via CSS?
