Small buttons

Small buttons are usually used as links to find out more information. 

Example

Read more

When to use small buttons

  • You'll see them most often as "read more" links within billboards.
  • They can also be used in column boxes and lists of stories or profiles.

Guidelines for using small buttons

  • These buttons are designed to be seen after the content, linking to more information.
  • Because they're small, the buttons can easily be missed while quickly scanning the page. Make sure they're not the only link -- link story titles and images as well.
  • They should not link to other sites but keep the user on the current site.
  • Recommended text for the small buttons is "Read more." Avoid using long titles.
