Before you proceed, please make sure your Magento cache is refreshed and disabled.

Static Block footer links

  1. The footer links may differ from template to template. You can find them in the Magento admin panel -> CMS -> Static blocks. Each Magento store includes static blocks called Footer Links.

    The static blocks code looks as follows:

    <ul>
    <li><a href="{{store direct_url="about"}}">About Us</a></li>
    <li><a href="{{store direct_url="customer-service"}}">Customer Service</a></li>
    <li><a href="{{store direct_url="template-settings"}}">Template Settings</a></li>
    <li class="last privacy"><a href="{{store direct_url="privacy-policy-cookie-restriction-mode"}}">Privacy Policy</a></li>
    </ul>
    

    and Footer List

    <h4>Why buy from us</h4>
    <div class="footer-col-content">
    <ul>
    <li><a href="#">Shipping & Returns</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Secure Shopping</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">International Shipping</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Affiliates</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Group Sales</a></li>
    </ul>
    </div>
    <h4>My account</h4>
    <div class="footer-col-content">
    <ul>
    <li><a href="{{store url='customer/account/login/'}}">Sign In</a></li>
    <li><a href="{{store url='checkout/cart/'}}">View Cart</a></li>
    <li><a href="{{store url='wishlist/'}}">My Wishlist</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Track My Order</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Help</a></li>
    </ul>
    </div>

    To link it to the external URL, replace

    store direct_url="about"

    with your website URL (http://your_URL_here).

    To link it to the internal page, replace:

    store direct_url="about"

    with:

    store direct_url=”HERE INSERT THE PAGE, CATEGORY OR PRODUCT PAGE LINK”
