I have a static block for my main menu. I am unable to make this block working. I need to change the URL for my site main menu, but since this block doesn't work. I am not able to figure out how to do it. Even after deactivating the block, it still shows the main menu, which somewhat means that this block always remains activated.

Here's the code for the static block

<li><a href="{{store direct_url="about-magento-demo-store"}}">about us</a></li>
<li><a href="{{store direct_url="contacts/"}}">contact us</a></li>
<li><a href="{{store direct_url="blog"}}">blog</a></li>

Block Title: Menu Links
Identifier: pt_menu_links

This is the website : singhcycle.com
I need to update the link of the main menu (About Us, Contact Us, Blog)

  • Are you sure the links are coming from a static block. Can you turn on template hints and confirm what template file the menu is using

  • Please check if it's on the right store view or website

I don't know if this qualifies to be an answer

All i need to do was clear the cache! Sometimes, we overlook the basics, I guess that's what happened with me today.
