I saw that in possible add a static block from the category management into Magento backend as you can see in picture

Screen

I tried to add the static block and to display it but it doesn't work.

I want to display a different static block for each categories that I have (e.g. for the category 1 I want display a gallery with only pictures that are about the specific category also a little banner that have a specific content for the specific category, and so for every category)

How can I fix it? I prefer to manage it from the backend

EDIT:

at left is the screenshot from my magento's backend

at right is my webiste category after saving the configuration. screenshot

You have pointed correct location in example image.

  • You need to create a different CMS static block for each category, for which you want to show static block content.
  • Then click on individual category, click on Display Settings tab.
  • Select Static block only or Static block and products for Display Mode.
  • Now select respective static block from drop down CMS Block.
  • Click on Save button.

What you have shown in your image is correct, then follow these steps:

  1. Create a static block you want to show in your category page.
  2. Go to the category as shown in your image above

  4. Save this category
