    I have a problem with a Button I created, it is visible, but not editable inside the desktop editor.  How do I get to that button and delete it?

      Hey johnbilal, 


      If you are unable to click the button, it has most likely been pushed backward behind your page element. Please click your page > in the float panel that appears click the Send Backward button until it is greyed out (the button will look as in this example):


      If you are still unable to edit, please let us know where we can find the button on your site.

      You can add an individual button and link it to your home page for example.

      Other option is to add a menu navigation buttons, this way your visitors will be able to navigate through your site pages.

      Add a button to your site from the Buttons & Menus section of the Add list and link it to an external site, a page from your site, a document or an email address.

      To add a button:
      1. From the left in the Editor, click the Add icon.
      2. From the "Add" list, click "Buttons & Menus". Click one of the button options.
      3. From the Button Settings window, under Button Text, type a name for your button.
      4. Under Link to, click the field.
      5. From the Link Settings window that opens, click your Link type: Web Address, Page, Email or Document and add your link.
      Note: For more information about adding links, see the below section, Linking Your Buttons.
      6. From the Link Settings window, click Done.
      7. Click outside of the button to close the Button Settings window.
      A button is added to your site.
      Note: To return to Add , click Back to Add from the top of the window. To close Add, click X from the top right.

      This currently not possible, however there is a possible work around.


      You can either have the button linked to an uploaded pdf which the user downloads when they click of you can link the button to a hidden page (a page with no other way to navigate to it) and have the T&Cs on that page.
