how to add link in footer that goes offsite?
« on: June 10, 2014, 04:12:44 PM »
Hi. I would like to add a link in the footer, but I don't want to add a page for it to go to. I want it to link to another website. How can I do this?

If you're not into coding on the templates, etc.  I would suggest buying the White Label Extension for $10.00
Here's the link,  or you can get there from within your aPanel.

that will also solve your issue with the copyright in another post -  you control everything on the footers in the Site page,  the admin pages, and your emails to customers.   Important you will need to do all the areas  as when you turn the extension on,  it turns all the automatic footer info OFF.

That brings up another problem. There were two other extensions I was going to buy, but I'm unable to login to buy them. I registered, but when I try to log in, it keeps putting my zip code where I had entered my login name, and then of course I can't login. I sent them two messages about it, one via their contact form and one via their facebook page, but they haven't responded. So I'm not sure what to do next.

are you going to the extension from within your aPanel?
Extension > Extension Store

the new marketplace is from Abantecart.   If you are having difficulty please post it on this board,  and/or PM  (personal messsage) abantecart directly.  Just find any of his posts and select the little conversation tab under his avatar.

The marketplace is a new offering from Abantecart and like all new things sometimes they need a tweak or two, but they will respond to you

Hello.  Keeping zip code in login field is something related to browser or browser addons. Please type you login name in this field. Also check your mail (and spam folder too) for activation email from site where you registered

I type my login name, but then as soon as I click the login button, it changes to my zip code again. I'd be happy to change my login name to my zip code if only I could login!

Oh, I just saw this bit! I actually have everything else in the footers and the emails the way I want it, and I'm fine with editing things in the templates. I just need to know which template and what to edit.

Ha! That gave me the idea to create a new account using my zip code as my login name and a different email address! Success!

Just to be clear, though I created another account and bought some other extensions, I would prefer to edit a template to add the link in the footer. Can someone please tell me how/where to do this?

Hi. Each template have Layouts, page Layouts consist of blocks.
You need to create HTML block with your link html code then add it to the footer section in page Layout

Hello.
Try to edit the blocks/content_footer.tpl file in your theme

Thanks Basara, I already did it, but I have the word of the link in Portuguese and I wish that in the English language this word was in English, I tried but I couldn't.

I created a new word then added the link in blocks/content_footer.tpl and what happens is that the link is there but the text is not visible, like if I click it opens the link but I can't see the link text.
