    I did use it with the plain mode, also the saving with it (tried it before posting here for help).
    I’m using it in the description section of the product page (“Description” and “Shore Description”).

    Here is the code: contact us
    Here is the result on front-end: http://domain/category/{{store url=

    Two more things that i saw when using it in the product description are:
    1. It ads the category to the link
    2. if there is another link using this method after the first one, it is showing the html: <a href="store etc…
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the reply Robert.
    I’m using as well, and it does work in the description (the long one), but the problem is with the short description (“quick overview”).

    if I use: Contact Us what i see in the front is:{{store url=

    I have also tried to do it on a fresh install, and it seems to work on the short description. Could not find the solution/code to the problem in the production site (the one with the bug)

    I have my footer links like:

    Contact Us

    But when going to the checkout page, the links will remain HTTP, instead of being HTTPS…so they give me an Internet Explorer mixed content error.

    Do you know how to prevent this ?

    This is great help!

    I used this code <img style="padding: 20px;" src="{{skin url='images/gallery /images/25.jpg'}}" in a static block, intent to get electronics category page, but it’s didn’t work, what else should I do?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hello and thank you for the article.
    How do you tell {{store url=””}} to use https instead of http?
    Magento Wiki does not help a lot here:

    The best practice is to use single quotes with cms directives, because there are some specific cases when you can get broken content of the WYSIWYG editor.

    […] In generale è possibile usare la direttiva {{store ***}}di Magento per molti altri usi, trovate alcuni esempi anche su in un articolo dedicato. […]
