i try to show the business terms on a simple page but my block isn't rendering.

The page which calls the block:

{{block type="cms/block" block_id="business_terms"}} 

The block itself with the settings:

identifier: business_terms

status: enabled

content: test

Nothing special here but the output I get is the page title with empty content.

My Magento Version is

My guess: the problem belongs to the permission changes which comes up in So i try to set the permission for the block in CMS -> Permissions -> Blocks with

Block name: business_terms

is allowed: yes

But no luck. Could you give me some advice, how to fix it?


Block name should be cms/block and not your block id. Block name is actually the type of the block that must be allowed.
