Do I have to copy a button if I want to have a different text or link?
To change text and link :
maxbutton id=”1″ text=”yourtext” url=”http://yoururl”
If you only want to change one of the two, just leave the not needed option out.
Most often used options:
maxbutton id=”1″ text=”yourtext” url=”http://yoururl” window=”new” nofollow=”true”
You should never copy buttons if you only have a different line of text and / or link on any button. You can use the ‘add button’ dialog from your posts and pages to easily use this options
How do I use the shortcode in a sidebar/widget?
How can I add the shortcode to my post/page template?

Can't see styling on the frontpage
* Theme doesn't have proper footer, check if wp_footer() is called in the theme.
* Using MaxButtons with sliders, dynamic page loaders (such a parallax and one-page themes ) or caching mechanisms.
First ensure you have cleared all your (page) caches. Then you can try to add the following to your shortcode:
maxbutton id=1 style="inline"( replace the ID with the number of your button ).
TablePress and MaxButtons
To solve this problem, simply add the caching option to the shortcode like this:
[table id=123 cache_table_output=false]. See this support topic on TablePress.
A solution which will keep the cache enabled is to use this in your shortcode:
maxbutton id=1 style="inline". Flush the TablePress cache after adding.
Part of my button is cut off, how do I fix that?
<div style="margin: 10px 10px 10px 10px;"> <?php echo do_shortcode('maxbutton id="17"'); ?> <?php echo do_shortcode('maxbutton name="MaxButtons Button Name"'); ?> </div>
Then adjust the margin values as needed (the order is: top, right, bottom, left).
How do I center the button on a page?
How do I align multiple buttons next to each other?
Nowadays most themes / page builders have some own way of creating grid-based content. Those are often preferable.

Autoptimize and MaxButtons
MaxButtons PRO has a setting to output CSS-styling to a file only. This might also help any issues.
Non-Latin language users
Secondly, please use latin only characters for button name ( Basic settings) and extra classes ( Advanced settings ). Not doing so might prevent the styling output from working correctly.
