So I have a category in the navigation section that I would like to link to the same link that is in the footer. I've tried copying the link path that I used for the footer link and putting it in the category for the one in the navigation however it isn't working. So could someone please guide me through the process?
in backend, go for Catalog > Catalog > Url rewrite management.
there is a default option in magento to link category to cms pages.
better you go through this link : http://www.hostknox.com/tutorials/magento/url-rewriting
