Thanks for the reply. I have tried that as well. It puts the quick access links in the right position in the markup (in the footer where I want it). Unfortunately it breaks the functionality. When I add a product it no longer updates My Cart and when I login, the Login links does not change to Logout.
I assume that something in customer.xml and checkout.xml needs to be changed too.
I ran into the same problem, I also noticed that it only happens if caching is enabled. Here’s how you can do it in 18.104.22.168 if you have caching disabled:
In your page.xml file look for this:
Add this code to it: (taken from the header and changed from top.links to bottom.links)
<block type="page/html_footer" name="footer" as="footer" template="page/html/footer.phtml">
Then go to the template/page/html/footer.phtml file and add this code wherever you want the links to show up.
<block type="page/template_links" name="bottom.links" as="bottomLinks"/>
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('bottomLinks') ?>
Now there are some things you have to change in customer.xml and checkout.xml. Just open the files and search for “top.links” anywhere you see that code duplicate it and change the name/reference to bottom.links or whatever you named the block.
Now if only someone could figure out why this doesn’t work with caching enabled!!!
