Please help me add a static link to the front end footer

Colby Jenkins Posted in General Discussion 1 year ago

I would like to add a static link to a contact page on the front end of the site. I downloaded the older add a page component but V6. does not recognize it as valid (maybe because it is missing ossn_chk.md5 file). I don't really need to be able to edit it from admin.

Hello world is a nice example but does not, that I can see, touch the footer portion.

All I really need to know is where I might add a valid html <a href> which can be in html or php. I can handle either.

While I feel sure that what Allon said would work in the short term, I am going to repeat part of the comment that I left on the component page. The component that Arsalan suggest was a painless install, worked perfectly and I hope ensures that I have one less mod to update when I need to upgrade the scripts. I only missed it when looking because I was searching for a way to add links. Duh. menus are links. Me bad.

I learned along time ago you can reinvent the wheel but why would you want to do so?

@Allon I am trying to save people here for redone work and time. Otherwise they are welcome to do what they wish.

Awe Arsalan, it's a minor coding change. Can be easily redone after upgrade. You know this!

Thank you both for the replies. I will consider both of them carefully. Both are a lot less painful than what I was about to do. :)

Not my first rodeo so I am well aware that any mods will need to be updated with a system update. I keep a change log to minimize the pain and do my best to keep the mods to an absolute minimum.

No please don't do what Allon mentioned it will be overwritten during upgrade. You can use to add links in footer and other places.

Go to and open... themes/(theme_name)/plugins/default/theme/page/elements/footer.php There you will find a place to put your code. Hoping this helps!
