hi, i have just installed magento.

Does anybody know how to add a CMS page link to the navigation (footer navigation)?

I have created a page named ‘FAQ’ and have enabled it, but it’s not showing in footer navigation

It all depends on what theme you are using.  Some themes don’t call out the footer in CMS.  In this case, you would need to go to the footer.phtml under the App folder.

including default? would that explain why I can’t find anything in the CMS for home page footer on the demo?

And in any case, where would I modify footer.phtml? If I modify:

/magento-root
/app
/design
/frontend
/default
/default
/template
/page
footer.phtml

doesn’t that get overwritten on an upgrade?

if I make a copy of

/magento-root
/app
/design
/frontend
/default
/default

(including everything under the last subdirectory) and rename to:

/magento-root
/app
/design
/frontend
/myinterface
/mytheme

and in that tree modify:

/magento-root
/app
/design
/frontend
/myinterface
/mytheme
/template
/page
footer.phtml

1) is that footer.phtml safe from being overwritten?
2) that footer.phtml will be automatically picked up if I select “myinterface/mytheme” for the design?

I’m just trying to wrap my arms around this. If I want to change the css/javascript for this new theme I’ve created by copying, I need to have:

/magento-root
/skin
/frontend
/myinterface
/mytheme
/css
/images
/js
favicon.ico

to mimic

/magento-root
/skin
/frontend
/default
/default
/css
/images
/js
favicon.ico

as well, correct? And that directory structure will be safe from upgrades?

I’m writing this out and bookmarking it for myself, assuming I have finally gotten my arms around this :\
