Adding a simple link to another one of my pages

Looking to add a simple link to the bottom of one of my pages to link it to another. When I put a button like, “rich text” on Dawn with the link to another page it works, but it also puts it at the bottom of ALL my pages unfortunately. 

this also happens when I add sections to just one page it end up adding them to other pages as well. When I go to hide it on the other pages it then hides it on all pages. 

any help appreciated! Thanks

It's probably happening because you are using same template for all of your pages. 
In order to fix that, create new template for each of your pages based on the template you are using:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
  2. Find the theme that you want to edit, and then click Customize.
  3. Use the Template drop-down menu to select a template. Click + Create template.
  4. Give your template a unique name.
  5. Using the Template drop-down menu, select which existing template you want to base your new template on.
  6. Click Create template.

Hello! Could you please provide your store URL? Thanks!

First try going to Page Templates>Add New Template. Then assign the template to the desired page. 
 If that doesn't work it sounds like you are using an older theme most likely, one with static sections VS the newer "sections everywhere" Shopify themes. This means a unique section must be created in the code then be added to the page template.

You can try this to fix it:

Themes > "..." > Edit Code > Search for the section type you want to use, and copy the entire code (Ctrl+C)


Next scroll down to sections in the left side dashboard and select "Add Section" name it something you will remember such as "rich-text-bottom-of-page.liquid" paste the code from the last step and click "Save".


Next navigate to the Page Template of the page where you want to add the link. Try and find the code for the bottom of the page and insert this code to add your new section:


{% section 'rich-text-bottom-of-page' %}



Then click Save. You can now go to Customize your theme and the section should be there to edit.

You will need to do this anytime you want to "reuse" a section outside of the homepage. Because some themes do not have dynamic sections they must be duplicated to show unique content. If indeed is the issue your facing, it may be better to switch to a 2.0 theme but this should work in the meantime.

Hope that helps!
