I am looking to amend the link to the Privacy Policy in my Magento 2.3.x installation. It is currently pointing to /privacy-policy-cookie-restriction-mode however I would like it to point to /privacy-policy.

I have inserted the following code to default.xml and cleared my cache but it has no effect. I'm struggling to troubleshoot.

 <!-- Corrects Privacy Policy Link -->
    <referenceBlock name="footer_links">

    <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Link\Current" name="privacy-policy-cookie-restriction-mode">


    <argument name="label" xsi:type="string">Privacy Policy</argument>

    <argument name="path" xsi:type="string">privacy-policy</argument>

Please check with footers links are have from two place :

  1. in cms block footer_links_block you can edit which will effect in footer
  2. all core module search referenceBlock="footer_links" in xml files where ever they added links and display in footer
  • I can not find the CMS block you are referring too?

  • check with this path - vendor/magento/module-cms/view/frontend/layout/default.xml Jul 10, 2019 at 12:22
  • There is no such folder in my installation

the way I ended up fixing this issue is by removing the link from the footer and re-adding my custom Privacy Policy link to a static block in the footer.

Achieves the same result and looks like the cleanest solution to me.
