How to add one more links block in footer in Shopify

  1. Log into your Admin panel and navigate to Themes menu.
  2. Click on Customize Theme button. Click on the Edit HTML/CSS button.
  3. Open theme.liquid file under Layout tab.
  4. Search for footer and copy one of the existing blocks. In this example we are going to add a new block list with links to pages. Therefore, we are going to copy the same.
  5. Paste our copied code prior to the closing </div> of the whole footer container.
    <div class="col-sm-2 col-xs-6 footer_block footer_block__5 wow">
    <h3>{{ settings.footer_block5_title }}</h3>
    {% for link in linklists[settings.footer_block5_list].links limit:7 %}
    <li {% if %}class="active"{% endif %}>{{ link.title | link_to: link.url }}</li>
    {% endfor %}
  6. Replace block__# number precisely to the next value, for example, change footer_block__1 to footer_block__5 and footer_block1_list to footer_block5_list.


  7. In order to fit five blocks in footer, we need to decrease the width for our blocks. This can be done by changing the “col-sm-3” class to “col-sm-2”.
  8. Click on Save button to save changes.
  9. Select settings.html file under Configs tab on your left hand side.
  10. Search for footer section. We are going to duplicate a portion of this table in order to use it for our new one.

    <td><label for="footer_block5_title">Title</label></td>
    <td><label for="footer_block5_list">Content</label></td>
