Brian Gardner published a post on adding CSS buttons to a website created with the Genesis Theme Framework. According to his post, StudioPress will be implementing these additions in the new Genesis parent theme once Genesis 1.9 is released.
I’ve added a few extra touches to his code which produces what you see below:
Following are the changes I made to Brian’s existing style sheet code
-moz-box-shadow: 0 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.15);
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.15);
background: url(images/overlay.png) repeat-x;
box-shadow: 0 1px 3px rgba(0,0,0,0.15);
padding: 10px 15px;
text-shadow: 0px 1px 1px rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.5);
In the code above I used a transparent png with a gradient to give the buttons some dimension. You can grab the overlay.png file here.
