Displaying a Bootstrap 3 Button in text.

This button can be used for navigation, for example at the end of a text block.

These buttons can’t be used in forms.


First install the module, preferably in a virtual environment. It can be installed from PyPI:

pip install fluentcms-button

First make sure the project is configured for django-fluent-contents.

Then add the following settings:


    'slot name': {
        'plugins': ('ButtonPlugin', ...),

The database tables can be created afterwards:

./manage.py migrate

Frontend styling

The button is rendered with the HTML that Bootstrap prescribes:

<a class="btn btn-default" href="#" role="button">Link</a>

The standard Bootstrap 3 CSS will provide a reasonable styling for this, which can either be overwritten, or replaced in your own CSS files. The defaults provided by Bootstap 3 is: https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap-sass/blob/master/assets/stylesheets/bootstrap/_buttons.scss

When you use Sass, you can also override the Sass variables.


When desired, the following settings can be overwritten:

from django.utils.translation import pgettext_lazy

    ('btn-default', pgettext_lazy("button-style", u"Default")),
    ('btn-primary', pgettext_lazy("button-style", u"Primary")),
    ('btn-success', pgettext_lazy("button-style", u"Success")),
    ('btn-info', pgettext_lazy("button-style", u"Info")),
    ('btn-warning', pgettext_lazy("button-style", u"Warning")),
    ('btn-danger', pgettext_lazy("button-style", u"Danger")),
    ('btn-link', pgettext_lazy("button-style", u"Link")),

    ('', pgettext_lazy("button-size", u"Default")),
    ('btn-lg', pgettext_lazy("button-size", u"Large")),
    ('btn-sm', pgettext_lazy("button-size", u"Small")),
    ('btn-xs', pgettext_lazy("button-size", u"Extra Small")),

By default, the standard Bootstrap button classes are used. These can be redefined when the project uses other classes for the buttons.
