How is this possible? I know how to do it with two different blocks but I don't know how to reorder a CMS block with a a module block.

To rearrange elements you need to use the <move> tag.

Here's the official documentation about it: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/frontend-dev-guide/layouts/xml-manage.html#layout_markup_rearrange

In your case I reckon the right code would be something that looks like this:

<page layout="1column" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <move element="your.static.block.name" destination="page.top" before="breadcrumbs"/>

Don't forget to change the element attribute value with the value of your block name.

  • I thought it could be something like that. Thank you very much Raphael. May 24, 2016 at 12:32
  • Is it okay to use "move" for all of my static blocks in the default layout xml file for my theme? Am I okay to move them if they don't appear on that page or will that throw an error? May 24, 2016 at 12:36
  • @user3621758 yes I reckon you can. You need to try though May 24, 2016 at 13:27
  • I did try, it didn't really do anything. Unless I have the container names wrong. May 24, 2016 at 13:36

    @user3621758 You can check if the container name is correct by removing it. If it doesn't remove itself then you have the name wrong - <referenceContainer="name.here" remove="true" />
