Entering & Linking Info to Static Block

Entering & Linking Info to Static Block

Hi there, I am a first time Magento user and struggling....

I have created a static block on the footer of my website and have created the list of links which i want listed underneath the main title. But how and where do i enter the information for each link? And how do i make the link work so when customers click on it it shows them the entered data.

For e.g. the main footer title is About Us and underneath I have listed More About Us, Careers, In the Community etc...

Hoping this makes sense and someone can help!

Hi @NadiaMaisano,

 

1) Which version of Magento are you using?

2) Basically you are trying to connect some links with the static page with the content? (Is this the question?)

Hi @Damian Culotta

I am using version 1.7.0.2

First i need to know where to actually type and enter the information for each link.

And then i need to know how to connect that information with the necessary link.

Apologies if this does not make sense.....

At the bottom of the website there is a section titled About Us and under that I have listed More About Us, Careers etc... but i can't see where i can actually type the info in for those words.

@NadiaMaisano,

 

Basically you'll need to edti the footer block.

 

Go to the CMS menu and click on Static Blocks:

 

Área de trabajo 1_013.pngCMS submenu

Now you'll get the blocks list.

 

Área de trabajo 1_014.pngFooter blocks

 Click on "Footer Links" row because we want to edit the content.

 

Área de trabajo 1_015.pngFooter edition

There you'll see the links and the url's of each link.

Now we can check or edit the pages.

Go to CMS -> Pages:

 

Área de trabajo 1_016.pngFooter edition

Here you'll see the pages list.

 

Área de trabajo 1_017.pngPages

 If you check your selected page, you'll see the URL key that you'll use for the links on the static block.

 

Área de trabajo 1_018.pngPage edition

Hi @Damian Culotta

Thank you so much for sending me these detailed instructions.

When I click on the footer link there actually isn't any link or url for me to see or copy........

Is there somewhere where i physically need to type in my information?

Or do i need to link it to a file on my computer?

@NadiaMaisano,

 

Click on "Show/Hide Editor" and you'll see the HTML code.

Hi @Damian Culotta

When I click on Show/Hide Editor it says PLEASE DON'T CHANGE ANY HTML CODE TO AVOID UNEXPECTED CHANGES ON THE FRONT-END. JUST PUT THE CONTENT YOU WISH TO INCLUDE IN THIS BLOCK. THANKS

See attached image.IMG_9956.JPG

Re: Entering & Linking Info to Static Block

@NadiaMaisano,

 

That content was placed there by the person who create that block.

I can't say how will work but is only an static block with simple html. Make a backup before if you are not sure.
