Footer Links Block


I can not locate footer link menu.

I thought that footer link block should be in cms under static block on admin menu.

User guide does not specifies on footer link.

Can anyone help me on this?

Hi steveyoon03,

It’s not a static block, it’s a block type template_links which name footer_links, if you open the page layout file app\design\frontend\default\jm_wall\layout\page.xm l you would see this defined block

HTML Code:

   <block type="page/template_links" name="footer_links" as="footer_links" template="page/template/links.phtml"/>

you then can add a menu item to this block somewhere else, For example the below tag at the file of app\design\frontend\default\jm_wall\layout\catalog search.xml

HTML Code:

                        <reference name="footer_links">
            <action method="addLink" translate="label title" module="catalogsearch" ifconfig="catalog/seo/search_terms">
                <label>Search Terms</label>
                <url helper="catalogsearch/getSearchTermUrl" />
                <title>Search Terms</title>
            <action method="addLink" translate="label title" module="catalogsearch">
                <label>Advanced Search</label>
                <url helper="catalogsearch/getAdvancedSearchUrl" />
                <title>Advanced Search</title>

would add two links to the block
Hope you got it !
