Hi all,

Quick question. I've created a new page for our privacy policy (and will shortly be creating one for Shipping, Terms & Conditions, etc) and want to link to them from the "Footer Links" section, but I can't seem to get it to work.

I've created the new page via the Page manager tool (and have assigned it to the "information" category).

I've then gone to the Layout manager and have entered the URL as "/shopping/privacy.asp" but when I try to view the file I get a 404 error.

I know it's me probably doing something completely wrong somewhere but can't seem to figure out what.

I've had a look at the developer guide (and Cam's videos) which show how to do it for the "Header Navigation Menu Container", but that seems to use a different approach.

Any idea where I'm going wrong?

Cheers

I think I must have a different version of the dev guide as page 104 doesn't contain footer info in mine (It's "Column Flash" info), and mine doesn't include a 4.22.5.4 section either (only 4.22.5. "Right box Section" on page 120)

That aside, I have found a way to at least get the page working. The URL needs to be structured as http://localhost/shopping/shopcontent.asp?type=privacy

it would be nice if there was a way to give it a more user (and search engine) friendly URL. (I'm still getting used to the software, so perhaps there's a way to do this I've not come across yet using the SEO tool? )

Any tips/advice welcomed! :-)

Did you try just > shopping/shopcontent.asp?type=privacy

Or just > shopcontent.asp?type=privacy

I had to use the example mentioned above. (i.e. /shopping/shopcontent.asp?type=privacy)
Ideally, I'd like to be able to use either /privacy.asp or /shopping/privacy.asp if that's possible?

Have you tried without the leading slash?

i dont really think using page manager will create the shopping/privacy.asp, it will be shopping/shopcontent.asp?type=privacy. would maybe needing custom made coding to have it rendered as shopping/privacy.asp.
