    Q: How could this be achieved ?

    Method 1: Link Button.
    type.text.of.button.select.link.type.done.jpg

    For the Xenforo example above ...
    (1) the user would type out the text.
    (2) Then they would highlight the text, select the Link Icon, select Link Type: Download.
    (3) Done !

    Note: obviously these buttons could be skinned !

    Q: Could this be achieved with bbcode ?
    [button=download]Download XenForo 1.0.4[/button]

    Please Like if you want native Xenforo "Button"-Links. :)

    Note: this would just be a style change.

    The premise of this is to turn LINKs into something that looks like a button.
    In the post above you see: Cel Editor Button Management.
    Xenforo turns it blue because it's a link.
    This idea would just style it such that it looks more like a press-able button.

    Just adjust the Style Properties for UGC.

    agreed !

    I am basically talking about converting

    XenPorta

    to
    native.button.links.jpg

    Essentially so links stand out more.
    I like the button look as it looks clickable.
    Add a background color to the button and it would look nice.

    When you hover over a link ... a button-like orange backgroup appears.
    In the image below ... I just added a border.

    This request would have links look like that .... and I guess you'd have to add another hover effect (probably a background color change).

    You might like my button links as they are easier to see :)

    Can you take a screenshot of what it would look like ?

    This is what it looks like with the default gradient. Change the gradient in image background to your own for a more buttony sheen.

    I'd want the User-Generated Link to look like your Hover.
    and the Hover to change the background color to really make it feel like a button :)

    What can the miscellaneous do ? Make an image pop up ?

    I saw a good example of this "Looks like a Button" thing.

    Note: @Shelley also described a way to put a LINK image before the text.

    in Xenforo 2, you can make any text "look like a button" with the [icode] BBCode :)
