Keep element similar between pages ("Disable" current state)

Hi there,

New to Webflow, I started building my own portfolio website a couple days ago and it hasn’t been a fast learning curve but I my homepage is almost done and responsive. However I am now stuck on a simple button style issue.

I designed a button for my homepage (back to homepage); and I added it to my footer so this button appears on every pages.

But when I add my footer symbol to a new page, the button appears different (original looking).

After a bit of research it seems to be related to the current state status which activates at the moment I modify the style of my button.
I tried clicking the “cross” next to the current state tab, or bring it back to “none” status, but nothing works.

Any idea how to have better control of this “current state” feature? It really doesn’t feel intuitive at all… I tried finding information about it but I can only find stuff about hover, pressed…so if anybody has a link to some clear explanation, that would be really appreciated.

Thank you very much, my read-only project should be attached.

Thank you for sharing :slight_smile:

Since we can not create A new page in the read only link - i can’t see what’s happening when you add A footer symbol to your new page - can you please record your screen to show the senario?

Hi Shoko,

Just FYI, I “fixed” the issue by restyling the button for my new page(s).
After a bit more reading, it seems like since the button is a link to the homepage; when I am on the homepage, it can only ready it as in “current state”. I don’t think you can turn “current state” on/off since it’s related to the how you link stuff I think…please tell me otherwise if you know better.

To answer your question, when I added the footer symbol to a new page, the button would appear in its original webflow style (blue box white text).
