Add buttons

  1. Open the Insert panel
  2. Use the Button option
  3. Specify a Name for the button (the text that appears on the button)
  4. Specify the Link of the button (the target) by starting to type the name of the page:
    • this will search the current site, your other sites and Google Drive for site pages or Google Drive items to link to;
    • alternatively enter the URL to a website (web address) you want the button to link to.
  5. Move and size the button as required


Launched on 28 August 2018 to both Rapid Release and Scheduled Release G Suite domains and personal new Google Sites (made with a Gmail or personal Google Account) on a slow, 15-day rollout for everyone to get it.


  • Button links to pages on the same site open in the same window/tab but links to external items (URLs, other sites pages and Drive items) will open in a new tab/window.
  • When a button is vertically grouped it inherits the width of the group
  • The button uses the accent colour for your site set in the theme (or goes to white on a dark background)
