Change the shape of buttons to a custom button

Recommended Posts


Can anyone help me with changing the button shapes...

I am trying to get the buttons to look like a pipe. Maybe just adding a stroke at the corners?? I'm not sure how to do it.


I want it to look like the brand mark (but not the cross shape) just the rectangle shape that's been outlined

Hi @TimMarner - you can try assigning a background image to a button by uploading your brand mark to the CSS panel as a file, and then assigning it with css. It will definitely take tweaking the following properties to get it to apply correctly, but this should be a good starting point:


.sqs-button-element--primary {
   padding:  !important;
  border: 0px !important;
    background-color: transparent !important;
  background-image: url("REPLACE URL HERE");
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-position: center center;
  background-size: 75px 75px;
  height: 50px; 
  width: 150px;
  font-display: none;
  color: transparent !important;
  -webkit-transition: 3s;
  transition: 3s;

Hi, thanks for your help

I've added the code in with my image but yes it looks like it still needs some adjusting

Hi Tim- try adjusting the code to remove the "font-display" and "color" properties, and then add in these properties to fix alignment:


    justify-content: center;
    align-items: center;
    display: inline-flex !important;


Lmk if that works!

This looks much better thank you!

Is there a way I can do this but for the white buttons too? I can upload my white button image but I think I would need to target only the bright backgrounds? (like the the navigation bar)

Thanks for the help 🙂

I have figured out how to change the colour on different themes but I've noticed there is space around the button when its left-aligned

Do you think you could help with this please?

I think the button is fine. If you still have problem, can you take a screenshot?
