Don't know how to make a button a different color

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Hello! I have an old template (Marquee) and it's one where you can't add buttons with the insertion point, you have to put it in the page settings. So now I can't choose the size and style of my buttons - it's only letting me have one style.

Does anyone know how to make the bottom (ORDER TAKEOUT/DELIVERY) button orange with code?


Thank you for your help!

Sorry for the response time, I don't usually access the forum.

A simple custom CSS for this case:

a + a {
  background-color: #ff8800;

So, when there is a sequence of buttons (as in this case you have 2 buttons), only the first one will not be orange.

U can put this on Page Advanced Settings in order not to affect the other pages.

Sorry for my bad english xD

You should be able to do this by adding the following to Design > Custom CSS:

.homepage.extra-description-formatting .page-desc p:last-child > a:nth-of-type(2) {
  background-color: #ef7e06;
