This tag can be placed anywhere within the HTML and will output a simple HTML link. This link's text can be changed from the "Design" section of your EKM account.

Within HTML
The link is output by default as a simple HTML link, if you wished to target this link to apply CSS styling you could target the link in the same way the below example does.

<style type="text/css">
   .searchlink-button a {
         color: #fff;
         padding: 5px 10px;
         background: #fc329c;
         border-radius: 2px;
         font-size: 14px;
         text-decoration: none;

<span class="searchlink-button">[ekm:searchlink][/ekm:searchlink]</span>
This would output the button with styling as shown below.

The EKM system allows for some tags to be nested within other tags.
