I am working on a Magento 2.1.7 shop and I have created a child-theme of Magento Blank.

In the back-end, I have created a block with a custom, hardcoded, navigation like:

  <li><a href="http://www.examplewebsite.com/">Home</a></li>
  <li><a href="http://www.examplewebsite.com/about">About</a></li>
  <li><a href="http://www.examplewebsite.com/blog">Blog</a></li>
  <li><a href="http://www.examplewebsite.com/contact">Contact Us</a></li>

The question: Is there a piece of code for the website's base URL (a term often used in Codeigniter), so that the code above can be reusable?


You need to use {{store url=""}} for get base url of site in static block and pages.

  <li><a href="{{store url=""}}">Home</a></li>
  <li><a href="{{store url="about"}}">About</a></li>
  <li><a href="{{store url="blog"}}">Blog</a></li>
  <li><a href="{{store url="contact"}}">Contact Us</a></li>

  • Can I use apostrophes: <li><a href="{{store url='about'}}">About</a></li> for better looking code? – Razvan Zamfir Nov 1 '17 at 14:13
