I am working on a custom extension and i want to add additional block to the /checkout/cart/ page.

Take a look: enter image description here

Here is my config:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

Here is my layout:

         <reference name="checkout.cart">
            <block type="core/template" name="expressdelivery_ccart" template="expressdelivery/cart.phtml" />
        </reference>
    </checkout_cart_index>
</layout>

Here is my phtml Block located in /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/expressdelivery/cart.phtml:

This is a test!

And this simple text does not appear, why ?

How can i add a custom block bellow that block? Can you please help me out?

Thanks in advance!

  • show you update layout xml. You need write like <checkout_cart_index><reference name='content'><block name='blabla' type='yourmoduel/block' etc...></reference></checkout_cart_index> – Naumov Jul 11 '16 at 9:49
  • Can you form a complete answer so i can mark it ? – Venelin Vasilev Jul 11 '16 at 9:55

First you need to add the following to your config.xml under the <config> tag:

<frontend>
    <layout>
        <updates>
            <expressdelivery>
                <file>expressdelivery.xml</file>
            </expressdelivery>
        </updates>
    </layout>
</frontend>

Then you need to create your layout file app/design/frontend/base/default/layout/expressdelivery.xml with the following content:

<?xml version="0.1.0">
<layout version="0.1.0">

    <checkout_cart_index>
         <reference name="checkout.cart">
              <block type="core/template" name="extra_block" template="link/to/your/template" />
         </reference>
    </checkout_cart_index>

</layout>

Then in your app/design/frontend/<your_package>/<your_theme>/template/checkout/cart.phtml you'll need to add the following code:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('extra_block'); ?>

Before this code:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('crosssell') ?>
  • if added output='toHtml' in block when render to be automaticaly. – Naumov Jul 11 '16 at 10:07
  • I have done all what you say but it is not working. Anything does not appear. – Venelin Vasilev Jul 11 '16 at 10:10
  • @TonyStark what did you write in your template ? – Raphael at Digital Pianism Jul 11 '16 at 10:13
  • @TonyStark this answer correct, but you need determine reference block. You can enable show block hits in admin->system->configuration->for develop chose store view and enable block hints option. After refrash page and look in when block you whant past you block. Find this block in layouts file in layout/ directory rwd themes, get the name. And correct reference name=''needed_block' and write options output='toHtml' in you layout update file... p.s. sorry for my English. – Naumov Jul 11 '16 at 10:15
  • @TonyStark I've updated my answer, a part of XML is missing in your config – Raphael at Digital Pianism Jul 11 '16 at 10:19
