There have been requests for buttons for various microformats. Either badges, or buttons that do something with the specific microformats. This page keeps a list of buttons, and requests as well. - Tantek


If you add links to buttons you have designed, please

  • upload them to this wiki to guard against ending up with tons of broken images on this page
  • also include a statement that you do one of the following:
    • release them into the public domain
    • hold copyright, but release all rights as to it use
    • license them under a specified free license, e.g. consider using a Creative Commons license, such as cc-by-3.0.

Thank you.


Microformat Button

Simple microformats logo-text:

See Spread Microformats for SVG and more.

I've made a button for microformats. Since there are so many microformats and with more to come, just indicating support/ use of might be a good generic approach. The image is free to use. Please copy it to your own hosting account and not link to it.


I already have a "I use microformats.png" on my blog: http://doncrowley.blogspot.com/

CSS Styles for microformats

I'm not sure wether this can be under buttons, but I don't know where else to put it. This is a stylesheet containing styles for most microformats. And, it's automatic. I release it under the cc by-sa. Please note that I am new to microformats, and if you can improve this, please do. Mac Lover 13:25, 13 Apr 2007 (PDT)

CSS Buttons

As there are new microformats happening all the time I set about making a CSS button that looks like the handmade versions. This is the result.

The file with the CSS and the two images required (logo and background) can be downloaded from The Beastly Beasts.

Extract the microformat directory and the files in it to /css so that you have:

If your paths are different a bit of editing is needed.

The XHTML to create a button is:

<tag class="microformat-button microformat-type"><span></span>microformat-type</tag>

For example, an hCard button with a link to the spec:

<a href="http://microformats.org/wiki/hcard" title="Microformat enabled" class="microformat-button hcard"><span></span>hcard</a>

Buttons for draft formats

These may be subject to change if the names of the formats change when they are released.

Rohit is a very poor CSS hacker, but gave it his best shot. He also rendered it at 72 and 18 points.





I created a cheatsheet using Big Huge Lab's Badgemaker:
