I have created a link rendering variant and put in css class of "btn login-button"

enter image description here

However in my markup where the link is using that rendering variant this does not appear

<div class="component link member-hub col-12">
    <div class="component-content">
        <a href="/Articles" data-variantfieldname="Link" data-variantitemid="{B7229055-B046-47D3-AAC4-6EA4815F2696}">Login</a>    

The only way I have gotten it to appear on the anchor is when inserting the link, adding a class explicitly to the link. I don't want to rely on the content editors doing this though.

<div class="component link col-12">
    <div class="component-content">
      <div class="field-link">
        <a class="btn login-button" href="/ract" data-variantfieldname="Link" data-variantitemid="{33E5529D-270D-4738-9DCB-96DDB34EC23B}">Another</a>

Why is my link field Css Class not appearing? I have explicitly published to ensure that the markup isn't showing EE related markup.

Update: we are trying to use the bootstrap button styling of the link which is why I was trying to put it on the anchor element.

    Am I right that Tag field on your variant definition item is empty? If you set it to div link will be wrapped with additional div with expected classes: btn login-button and field-link. This is how it works right now. – Alan Płócieniak Feb 6 '19 at 6:58
  • @AlanPłócieniak I was trying to put the classes on the anchor rather than on a containing div - but good to know thanks! – Jen Feb 6 '19 at 21:39
  • @AlanPłócieniak I'm not sure the bootstrap styling will then apply to my link? Or do I have to clone this rendering to override this behaviour? – Jen Feb 7 '19 at 4:56
  • CSS class on a parent element is not a problem in styling world. I would update CSS selector instead – Alan Płócieniak Feb 7 '19 at 7:31
  • Try to add class into data attributes section - add as "class" and {class name} approptiately - it works for me. – Tery Nov 29 '19 at 21:46
