How to add the button to the (home)page

Before anything, you need to check your Joomla settings:

  • In the top navigation, go to System -> Global Configuration
  • At Default Editor, make sure have Editor – CodeMirror selected

check joomla editor settings

Having this done, now it’s the same drill for any page. But you should start with the homepage. Why? Because it’s your most important page. And online ordering is important for your business. So make sure you have your button nicely shown as soon as the client visits the website.

  • Go to ExtensionsModule and click on New to create a new module. Select the type Custom HTML
  • Give it a proper name and paste in your unique html button code from your admin
  • Select the position for your button
  • Click Save & Close
