    Post How to add static block in magento?

    we can include any static block in phtml files. I order to achieve this first you have to create the static block using magento admin panel and then include this static block into the magento. There are different ways we can add static blocks. yet another attempt to explain with quick and easy examples.

    1: how to include static block in phtml file?

    Let us suppose, you have created static block with identifier “promo_block” in magento admin.
    Now, you can call the static block from any phtml file with the help of following code:

    echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('promo_block')->toHTML();
    2: How to include static block on product view page?

    We will refer the same static block “promo_block”. Now open “catalog.xml” file from current theme folder (i.e.design/frontend/themeName/layout/catalog.xml) and search for string “”.

    You can add following code just before closing tag of product view page. we are adding “promo_block” static block into right reference. However you can add this block into any area like “content”, “left”, etc

    HTML Code:
    <reference name="right">  
            <block type="cms/block" name="promo_block" as="promo_block">  
               <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>promo_block</block_id></action>  
            </block>  
    </reference>

    Log into your Magento store's admin.
    Navigate to CMS>Static Blocks.
    Click Add New Block in the top right corner.
    Give your block a recognizable Block Title such as Social Media Links or “Fall Sale Banner”
    Give your block an Identifier which will be used to call the block.
