Use a contextual button

In the core DB go to /sitecore/content/Applications/Content Editor/Ribbons/Contextual Ribbons

And create your items with these templates:

Here is a schema to now what is a strip, a chunk, ...

Then you only need to go to the standard value of the template where you want to see your button and click on "Contextual Tab" in the tab "Configure" and select your ribbon


  1. Helpful document for contextual buttons..

  2. How to work with large buttons can you please provide documentation for large buttons.

  3. You just need to create an item based on the template: /sitecore/templates/System/Ribbon/Large Button in place of /sitecore/templates/System/Ribbon/Small Button
