Currently I only have 1 static block with footer links.

enter image description here

I would like to have a second one like in the image below (image is from magento1.9) I would also like to add a "title" to the footer link block like in the image below.

enter image description here

  1. Create a cms block with your links( for example block name is linkstwo).
  2. Go to

    Admin -> CONTENT -> Widgets -> Add new Widget->

    Type -> "Static Block"

    Design theme -> Luma


    Storefront Properties -> Layout Updates -> All pages AND container -> Cms footer links

    Widget Options -> Select a block (in your case linkstwo)

Save the widget, remove the cache and check.

  • Hey man! Thanks alot, this worked so far. Now the CSS seems to be messed up and the footer link blocks arent side by side.. Any idea how to fix that? – N1njaWTF Nov 1 '16 at 14:44

if you are creating a new theme, which would be the best approach, then you could just simply override the file: Magento_Theme/layout/default.xml

in that file inside your theme, you can put this xml code:

<referenceContainer name="footer">
    <block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="footer.static.block">
            <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">your_static_block_id</argument>
