Inline link widget not working?

Inline link widget not working?

Does the inline link widget in Magento 2 work the same way as the previous version? In my Magento 1 installation, I had no problem using the widgets in my template files, static blocks, and static pages. For example, I built a custom navigation menu that linked to certain product categories by linking to each with a widget. In Magento 2, this doesn't generate the corresponding link if used in the sections.phtml template or any other template I've tried. I've only gotten it to work inside a page created in the backend. Any ideas? Here's what I'm using:

<li class="menu-item">{{widget type="Magento\Catalog\Block\Category\Widget\Link" anchor_text="Text" title="Title" template="category/widget/link/link_inline.phtml" id_path="category/31"}}</li>



Re: Inline link widget not working?

It's a shame this has gone unanswered for so long.  This exact issue is driving me away from using Magento.

You can try with this syntax in phtml file, Its working syntax for magento 2,


echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock("Magento\Catalog\Block\Category\Widget\Link")->setIdPath("category/31")->setTemplate("category/widget/link/link_inline.phtml")->toHtml();

hey @cvaucher, it should be work.


Add below code and flush the cache


{{widget type="Magento\Catalog\Block\Category\Widget\Link" template="category/widget/link/link_block.phtml" id_path="category/31"}}


If work then marks as solution.
