Creating an Html Button that acts as a Link

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to create an html button that acts as a link, so that when we click on a button it will redirect to another page in a site.

First way

We can achieve this by wrapping a button element with an anchor <a> tag.

Example:

<a href="https://google.com"><button>Google</button></a>

Second way

Style the anchor <a> tag that looks like a button.

<a href="https://google.com" class="btn">Google</a>
.btn{
    padding: .5rem;
    background: orange;
    text-decoration: none;
    color:black;
}

Third way

Adding an inline (onclick) event handler to the button element with a location.href property.

<button onclick="location.href='https://google.com'">Google</button>

The value of a location.href property will be the another page url (you need to redirect) like https://google.com.
