You can customize your site further by editing the individual pages listed in the information section of the footer of your OpenCart site. By now, you should have already started to set up your categories for your products. The default installation of OpenCart already created 4 pages for your site (About Us, Delivery Information, Privacy Policy, and Terms and Conditions) and links to those can be found at the bottom of every page. You can edit each of these pages so your customers can learn more about your business. Editing these pages is easy to do through your dashboard.

Edit Footer Information:

  1. Log into your OpenCart Dashboard
  2. Go to Catalog > Information
  3. Now you’ll see a list of the default pages. Select the page you wish to edit by checking the box next to it and click the “Edit” link in the far right.
  4. opencart_infopages_1

  5. In the General Tab, type the title of the page and the description.


    There are other tabs however, since the General Tab is the only tab that requires information, we’re just covering that specific tab.

  6. Click "Save" in the upper right corner of the page.

    Now, when you visit your website and click on the About Us page in the footer you should see the changes you’ve made.


    You can repeat these steps to edit all the pages within the Information Section of the footer.

Congratulations, now you know how to edit the info pages in the footer of OpenCart! If you need further assistance please feel free to submit a question to our support center.

Hello Ravi,

Your comment doesn't really make sense. Can you explain it, please? You can't add a page in the header WITHOUT the URL. My co-worker also tested this by hardcoding the URL in the template file and it works. You may want to try adding the URL by editing the .TPL file that you want to change.

Hope that helps to explain the issue! Please let us know if you continue to have further questions or comments.

When we tested this ourselves, it is working. We're not sure what you are doing. Can you please explain the exact steps that you are taking to do this? Please provide a URL and we can also look at it. If we can duplicate what you are doing then we may be able to find the problem.

Hello Ravi,

Sorry again for the problems. I made quick video to show you how I am adding the page in my test OpenCart 1.56 site. Check it out and see if everything matches for you. I still can't duplicate the problem that you are having:

Kindest regards,

Hello Ravi,

Apologies, but we are not able to assist any further. As you are not one of our customer we are unable to check your server, that may be something you need to check out with your host. If you have followed the instructions and video everything should be working. From here, you may need to contact the OpenCart forums to see if anyone else can assist you with the issue.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M

Hi, how i can put some sting of about us page by linking read more button to about us page.

For example if about us page have the following text:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam pulvinar, odio eu consectetur porta, libero orci tempor felis, a adipiscing diam ipsum in enim.  Donec hendrerit dictum quam, a tincidunt neque vulputate nec. Proin nec sollicitudin augue.Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam pulvinar, odio eu consectetur porta, libero orci tempor felis, a adipiscing diam ipsum in enim. Donec hendrerit dictum quam, Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam pulvinar, odio eu consectetur porta, libero orci tempor felis, Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

I Want some text of this with read more button

At home page:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam pulvinar, odio eu 

(read more)-> to actual page

Thanks in advance

Hello Khurram,

If you have another page you want to link to you can certainly do that within the page editor. Simply type out the text you want (Read More), then highlight it and click on the 'Link' button (it appears as a chain link). This allows you to enter the URL you want to direct the link to.

Kindest Regards,

Also, remember that custom coding or hacks are not guaranteed an answer as they are beyond the scope of the Customer Community service level.
