How to display static blocks in the home page. I want to show a static block on the home page.I am overriding module_cms and add this code in cms_index-index but it's showing only last block

<referenceContainer name="content.bottom">
  <block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="block_identifier">
    <arguments>
      <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">block1</argument>
    </arguments>
  </block>

  <block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="block_identifier" after="-">
    <arguments>
      <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">block2</argument>
    </arguments>
  </block>

Keep below XML in your cms_index_index.xml file and check-in front,

You have to keep the same block_identifier for both static blocks.

You have to keep static block name as unique,

  <referenceContainer name="content.bottom">
        <block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="block_identifier">
            <arguments>
                <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">block1</argument>
            </arguments>
        </block>

        <block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="block_identifier-second" after="-">
            <arguments>
                <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">block2</argument>
            </arguments>
        </block>
   </referenceContainer>

Replace block1 and block2 with your static block id in above XML code.

You can do it in 2 ways.

From cms page add block to homage:

{{block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" block_id="block_identifier"}}

From Xml File:

<referenceContainer name="content">
    <block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="block_identifier">
        <arguments>
            <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">block_identifier</argument>
        </arguments>
    </block>
</referenceContainer>

Hope this helps you

Best way is, go to the layout file and copy the block description

<block class="Itheavens\Fanpage\Block\Index\Index" name="index.index" template="Itheavens_Fanpage::index/index.phtml"/>

and replace it with second bracket be like this

{{block class="Itheavens\Fanpage\Block\Index\Index" name="index.index" template="Itheavens_Fanpage::index/index.phtml"}}
