<a class="uibutton large" href="#button">Search</a>

Grouped buttons

To created grouped buttons wrap them in an element, or use a list, given the class uibutton-group.

<div class="uibutton-group">
    <a href="#button" class="uibutton">Dashboard</a>
    <a href="#button" class="uibutton">Inbox</a>
    <a href="#button" class="uibutton">Account</a>
    <a href="#button" class="uibutton">Logout</a>

<ul class="uibutton-group">
    <li><a href="#button" class="uibutton">Dashboard</a></li>
    <li><a href="#button" class="uibutton">Inbox</a></li>
    <li><a href="#button" class="uibutton">Account</a></li>
    <li><a href="#button" class="uibutton">Logout</a></li>

Mixed groups

To display a toolbar of buttons and grouped buttons, use a wrapping element given the class uibutton-toolbar.

<div class="uibutton-toolbar">
    <a href="#button" class="uibutton">Mark as unread</a>

    <div class="uibutton-group">
        <a href="#button" class="uibutton">Report spam</a>
        <a href="#button" class="uibutton">Delete</a>

    <a href="#button" class="uibutton">Unsubscribe</a>
