Re: how to add and edit the footer link in magento 2

Hi, Not familiar with this part of Magento so forgive these questions. If you change this file in the magento blank template will it get overwritten? where would this file go in the copied template /app/? Is it ok to add links to CMS pages to the cms default.xml?

If I wanted to add links to my footer how would I do that using a block? I have no blocks in my content section. clean install of Magento 2.1 and as mentioned above creating my own does not work. are there specific block names to call properly or something?

Re: how to add and edit the footer link in magento 2

You need to create a block and then a widget with the block.

In the Magento Admin(backend)

Create the block:

Content > Blocks
Add New Block
Block Title = Footer Links Block
Identifier = footer_links_block
Store View = All Store Views (or whatever store views it applies to, does not apply when using single store mode)
Click Show/Hide Editor and enter the following (not in WYSIWYG editor):

<ul class="footer links">
<li class="nav item"><a href="{{store url="page-url-key"}}">Link 1</a></li>
<li class="nav item"><a href="{{store url="page-url-key"}}">Link 2</a></li>
</ul>



Save

Create the widget:

Content > Widgets
Add Widget
Type = CMS Static Block
Design Package/Theme = Luma (or whatever theme you are using)
Click Continue
Widget Title = Footer Links
Assign to Store Views = All Store Views (or whatever store views it applies to, does not apply when using single store mode)
Layout Updates:
Display on All Pages
Container = CMS Footer Links

Widget Option > Select Block > Footer Links Block
Save

 

Refresh the needed caches:

 

System > Cache Management

Select invalidated caches and refresh
