How to add CSS based demo and download buttons in blogger?

Compared to other CMS, blogger needs more customization as it doesn’t support addition of external plugins. Therefore, we will have to add stylish demo and download button in our blogger blog by customizing our current [blogger template](https://www.twistblogg.com/2019/09/best-premium-blogger-templates.html).

Step 1: Adding Font Awesome To Blogger

This is an optional step if you have already installed font awesome in your blogger blog. If not, go to Template > Edit HTML > Search for </head> and paste the following code above it.

Note: Backup your template before proceeding.

<script type='text/javascript'>
//<![CDATA[
function loadCSS(e, t, n) { "use strict"; var i = window.document.createElement("link"); var o = t || window.document.getElementsByTagName("script")[0]; i.rel = "stylesheet"; i.href = e; i.media = "only x"; o.parentNode.insertBefore(i, o); setTimeout(function () { i.media = n || "all" }) }
loadCSS("https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/5.8.2/css/all.min.css");
//]]>
</script>
<noscript>
<link href='https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/5.8.2/css/all.min.css' rel='stylesheet'/>
</noscript>

Step 2: Adding CSS Code Of Demo And Download Buttons

Now, we will add CSS code to the template. Search for ]]></b:skin> and add following CSS code above it.

opacity: 0;
}
.bie-slide span.title-hover,

}

Step 3: Adding HTML portion to blogger posts

Paste following HTML code to the posts where you want to display download and demo buttons.

<div id="wrap" style="text-align:center">
<a class="bie-slide" href="#" rel="no-follow" target="_blank">
<span class="circle"><i class="fa fa-laptop"></i></span>
<span class="title">Live Demo</span>
<span class="title-hover">Click here</span>
</a>
<a class="bie-slide2" href="#" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">
<span class="circle2"><i class="fa fa-download"></i></span>
<span class="title2">Download</span>
<span class="title-hover2">Click here</span>
</a>
</div>

Or, you can use them separately.

For Demo Button:

<div id="wrap" style="text-align:center">
<a class="bie-slide" href="#" rel="no-follow" target="_blank">
<span class="circle"><i class="fa fa-laptop"></i></span>
<span class="title">Demo</span>
<span class="title-hover">Click here</span>
</a>
</div>

For Download Button:

<div id="wrap" style="text-align:center">
<a class="bie-slide2" href="#" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">
<span class="circle2"><i class="fa fa-download"></i></span>
<span class="title2">Download</span>
<span class="title-hover2">Click here</span>
</a>
</div>

You can easily change the icons by changing <i class="fa fa-laptop"></i> and <i class="fa fa-download"></i>. Browse more font awesome icons from here.

Done. You have successfully installed stylish demo buttons and download buttons in blogger. Since we made them with pure CSS, they won't impact pagespeed. Stay tuned and good luck with blogging.
