Magento::calling a static block in your template file (.phtml)

17 02 2010

To call a static block in Magento, Following single line will solve your problem,

<?php getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('my_static_block_name')->toHtml() ?>

Definitely we’ll write this line in some .phtml file for which you want to call this block …

Hope this tip will be helping for someone ;)
