I'm trying to make these hover buttons side by side like in a horizontal menu but the buttons won't seem to get bigger even if I fix their height and width
.button li{
display: inline;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
}
 
.button li a{
background-color: #CCCCCC;
/*background-image: url(normal image path);*/
background-repeat: no-repeat;
width: 100px;
height: 50px;
}
 
.button li a:hover{
background: none;
}
 
 
 
 
<div align="center">
<ul class="button">
<li><a href="#test">My link</a></li>
<li><a href="#test">My link</a></li>
</ul>
</div>

I'm not really sure what you're trying to do, but you can try:

padding: 10px;

if it works for you.

I want to make horizontal hover buttons. Padding 10 doesn't work because it makes the LI bigger but the gray part where the links are still looks small.

Set the width and height for 'li' css and remove it fro where it is now.
.button li{
display: inline;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
width: 100px;
height: 50px;
}
