I need to alter the Blog url in the "The Checkout | Blog | Login/Register" block that is referenced in the


I have looked everywhere and cannot find it. All I need to do is change the http to https for the blog link which was a customisation put in by my ex-developer

In the /header.phtml, this is part of the code that calls it, but I can't find where I can edit either the topContainer or topMenu. I iave looked in most/layout .xml's as well and cannot find anything there.

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('topContainer'); ?>
 <div id="nav-top">
    <div class="container">
        <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('topMenu') ?>

IT is driving me mental!

Check in your


May be you will find under

<block type="page/html_header" name="header" as="header">

if still not able to find then search the Keyword "Blog" in your project, to search in whole project clone the project in your local machine and search using NetBans in whole project or any other editor which you have installed.

  • thanks, but it is not in app\design\frontend\theme\default\layout\page.xml I did download NetBans but I have no idea how to use it or get it set up it looks really complicated? – Paul Wallace Feb 20 '17 at 15:05
  • I have just done a search via windows of the files, and found this in wordpress.xml <reference name="top.links"> <action method="addLink" translate="label title" module="wordpress" ifconfig="wordpress/toplink/enabled"> <label helper="wordpress/getTopLinkLabel" /> <url helper="wordpress/getTopLinkUrl"/> <title>Blog</title> <prepare>0</prepare> <urlParams /> <position helper="wordpress/getTopLinkPosition" /> <li_params /> <a_params>class="top-link-blog"</a_params> </action> </reference> but I still cant change the URL to https instead of http – Paul Wallace Feb 20 '17 at 16:18
  • In app\code\community\Fishpig\Wordpress\Helper\Data.php around line 25 Replace : <br/> $transport = new Varien_Object(array('toplink_url' => $this->getUrl())); To: transport = new Varien_Object(array('toplink_url' => $this->getUrl('', array('_secure' => true)))); after this clear your cache and try Note: File path may change in your environment if you modified the extension files – aman Feb 22 '17 at 3:45
