I am trying to create a static block on my homepage. So I added Static Block to the CMS Page Layout Update XML FIeld

Here is my code:

<reference name="left_first"> 
    <block type="cms/block" name="Offers"  before="-">
      <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>offer-link</block_id></action>
    </block>
</reference> 

Here I was expecting one block in the left side of my Home page and i am getting that but in addition to this i am getting it twice.

enter image description here

  • Could you post how you declare the left_first reference ? – Raphael at Digital Pianism Mar 16 '16 at 11:11

    What if you get rid of the before="-" ? – Raphael at Digital Pianism Mar 16 '16 at 11:38
  • Maybe left_first is added twice somewhere in the code? – Anna Völkl Mar 16 '16 at 14:36
  • Thank you for your reply.. i have removed before="-". now its working fine as expected.. :) – Sruthi Mar 17 '16 at 6:23

My problem was that I have used the same block name for multiple blocks. When I made sure they are all unique, then It was rendered just once.
