I would like to update the title of "Privacy and Cookie Policy" link displays on footer store (for example to translate this title in French).

The articles that I consulted talk about older versions of Magento thus not applicable for my problem.

Any ideas ?

Thanks in advance.

You can add this to /your_theme/layout/default.xml .

<referenceContainer name="footer">
    <referenceBlock name="privacy-policy-link">
            <argument name="label" xsi:type="string">My Privacy and Cookie Policy</argument>
            <argument name="path" xsi:type="string">my-privacy-policy-cookie-restriction-mode</argument>
  • This is the content of my layout.xml : <referenceContainer name="footer"> <block class="Magento\Store\Block\Switcher" name="store_switcher" as="store_switcher" after="footer_links" template="switch/stores.phtml"/> </referenceContainer> I try to add your XML block without success !

  • I found ! it has to edit the C:\wamp\www\magento2\vendor\magento\module-cms\view\frontend\layout/default.xml + clear the cache of Magento (Admin) Commented Mar 30, 2016 at 14:31

I believe the original answer is outdated. Here's where you'd put the new definition.


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="privacy-policy-link">
                <argument name="label" xsi:type="string">Privacy Policy</argument>
                <argument name="path" xsi:type="string">privacy-policy</argument>
