You can hide or show link from the backend

Stores >> Configuration >> General >> Contacts

You can enable or disable the default link


You can do this by observer

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">

     <event name="admin_system_config_changed_section_YourSectionName">
        <observer instance="Namespace\Modulename\Observer\ContactUsLink" name="admin_system_config_changed_section_yoursectionname"/>


namespace Pkit\JobPortal\Observer;
use Magento\Framework\Event\Observer as EventObserver;

class ContactUsLink implements \Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface {

    const XML_PATH_CONTACTUS = 'contact/contact/enabled'; //defualt magento contact us system path
    const XML_PATH_YOURCONTACTUS = 'section/group/field'; //your contact us system path

    protected $_scopeConfig;

    protected $_configInterface;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface $scopeConfig,
        \Magento\Framework\App\Config\ConfigResource\ConfigInterface $configInterface
        $this->_scopeConfig = $scopeConfig;
        $this->_configInterface = $configInterface;

    public function execute(EventObserver $observer)

                    ->saveConfig(self::XML_PATH_CONTACTUS, 0 , 'default', 0);
        } else if(!$this->_scopeConfig->getValue(self::XML_PATH_YOURCONTACTUS)){
                    ->saveConfig(self::XML_PATH_CONTACTUS, 1 , 'default', 0);
  • thanks for reply but actually i want to enable or disable dynamically from xml based on my own config value.
