I have looked and tried methods in other topics but I cannot find anything that will work.

I want to keep my homepage organized and I would like to add "sections" like about us and contact section to the home page.

I tried adding the the code like

<div class="row">
 <div class="col-sm-7">
   {{block type="cms/block" block_id="about_us"}}

But isnt showing the content fromt he block. I tried doing it with a widget and it did show but it was stuck in the container and the bg image was not going full width.

Any help would be appreciated.

Just need to add below code in CMS Page with you block id

{{widget type="cms/widget_block" template="cms/widget/static_block/default.phtml" block_id="18"}}


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

For getting static Block from a .phtml file {{block type="cms/block" block_id="about_us"}} is used to get static block in magento ver or before.
