When making a new post, adding a link to a button from the right side Block settings doesn't work, but adding it from the quick settings that appear next to block works.
Here is a video regarding the problem

@irinelenache thanks for your first report and welcome to Trac!

Worth noting the sidebar only contains settings for the link. The "Link rel" input field is not meant to be filled with the link href value. It is meant for the link rel attribute, for example: "external", or "noopener", etc.

Instead, the link href value needs to be set in the interface within the block.

Keeping the ticket open as maybe the editor and design team should consider to clarify this part of the user interface.

  • Focuses ui added
  • Summary changed from Button link in post doesn't work from block settings to Button link missing from block settings
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement

What is actually missing is the href field (with a Link URL description) in the Settings panel for the Button Block. We need it and then the rel field will be clear, although that field should be moved to the Advanced section in my opinion.
