Viewing a cms page, It uses
when I copy and paste the same CMS page content in a static block for category view,
the styles are rendered differently from the CMS page style.css that i wanted

I checked
Both are 100% identical

I also checked

Static block - Incorrect style format https://eliteshoppercentral.com/about.html

CMS Page - Correct style format https://eliteshoppercentral.com/about-us/

Styles.css doesn't apply to static blocks like it does with pages.
I have 260ms load time, other methods sacrifice performance or add redundant pages to my cache.
What can be done to have static blocks display clean like the CMS page?

  • Can you be more specific what is you problem?. Correct me if I'm wrong but you are showing a static context throw a category view bc you page is included in the top menu correct?. You are saying if you show the same page throw a cms page you correctly see the content

  • @GrinGo Yes, precisely. In cms page view the content is displayed the way I designed it. However, when viewing the same exact content(copy+paste) through a static block in category view it ignores the style in skin/frontend/rwd/default/css/style.css

RWD has custom styles applied only to cms pages, look at skin/frontend/rwd/default/scss/module/_cms.scss and you'll find it. I've seen that you are using the static block in a category view, to have the same styles add catalog-category-view to _cms.scss and recompile scss files.

Now you have:

.cms-no-route {

and it should become:

.catalog-category-view {
