Footer Customization

Footer Customization

Like to have an extensive footer - you know like whats on the bottom of this page with multiple rows & columns etc....  

 

Is this to be done entirely through the admin / block section after removing the standard items?

 

OR is it or can it be done by extending a layout and totally replacing the footer-container with one file?

 

I can not find any helpful tutorial on this online - they all seem to reference directories/ files which are not present in my install.

For example, you can change a template for a standard block with a layout directive: https://mage2.pro/t/66

Re: Footer Customization

Ok I have successfully added code to my default.xml file and rendered blocks to the page....

 

Code is as follows ....

 

        <referenceContainer name="footer">
            <container name="footer.col.wrapper" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="footer-col-wrapper" before="-">
                <block type="cms/block" class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="footer_list" after="footer_links">
                    <arguments>
                        <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">footer_list</argument>
                    </arguments>
                </block>
 
                 <block type="cms/block" class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="site_copyright" after="footer_list">
                    <arguments>
                        <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">site_copyright</argument>
                    </arguments>
                </block>
            </container>
        </referenceContainer>

I have two blocks called there - four columns of footer links and then a second one which is a row for the copyright ....     I had to disable the newsletter as I was unable to figure out how to remove it and add it back as block ...

 

So - can you assist with the code to remove the newsletter instead of disabling it?      Also I would like to know how I can add divs below / after the footer instead of having to add to that reference container.    Can anyone help with that?   

Re: Footer Customization

Have tried several things to remove footer newsletter but can not do so.

 

Is there a way to find out what every block or container is called? 

 

        <referenceContainer name="footer">
            <referenceBlock name="footer.newsletter" remove="true" />
        </referenceContainer>   

Re: Footer Customization

For anyone else ...

 

<remove name="form.subscribe"/>

Re: Footer Customization

In magento admin > store > config->advanced->developer

Go to debug and say yes to all three..

 

Disable cache in magento admin->system->cache management

 

set layout,blocks and pages to DISABLED

 

Your page will look messyCat Happy , but you will find all your block names and paths
