Issue on Linking to Custom Post Type Meta

I have a Custom Post Type and a text input metadat for URL. Things works fine for me so far unless when I want to echo the meta to a href"" in button. Here is what I have

$meta = get_post_custom($post->ID);
echo '<button type="button" class="> <a href="'.<?php echo $meta['source'][0];?>.'" target="_blank"> Read More @ News Source</a></button>';

What I am doing wrong?


Remove the <?php echo and ?>. Its not required as your concatenating the string

$meta = get_post_custom($post->ID);
echo '<button type="button"> <a href="'.$meta['source'][0].'" target="_blank"> Read More @ News Source</a></button>';

Also not sure what class=" is before..


Surrounding the link with a <button> tag will make the link un-clickable as a button tag should not be used in this context.

Change it to a span instead

$meta = get_post_custom($post->ID);
echo '<span type="button"> <a href="'.$meta['source'][0].'" target="_blank"> Read More @ News Source</a></span>';
