How to edit footer links and copyright notification

Most people know that all the useful links are gathered in the footer section of the website, that is why you may want to edit them according to your needs. Perform the following steps to do it:

  1. Open your website admin panel and navigate to Online store > Themes > Customize.
  2. Choose the Custom blocks section.
  3. Scroll down to Footer position where all the footer links are set.
  4. To edit the title that appears for each block, just change the text in the Title column.
  5. To edit the content that appears under the block title, edit the Content column accordingly.
    Some blocks appear with a drop-down to choose the Content that fits you:

    • None – will not display anything under the footer block title.
    • Footer – displays footer links set in Online Store > Navigation > Footer menu. You can manage it by clicking on Edit Link list.

    On the page that opens you can edit the existing link as well as Add another link. Be sure to click Save when the changes are made.

    • Main Menu – displays links set in Online Store > Navigation -> Main Menu list. It can be edited the same way as Footer list.
    • You can also add a new list and you will be able to choose it from the Custom block Content drop-down.

    To do so, go to  Online Store > Navigation and click on Add a link list. On the page that opens fill in the fields with appropriate information.

    Do not forget to Save link list.

    • For those blocks that have no dropdown in the Content column, you modify just the information set (email, link, telephone, text).
