I have a module layout file below

<default>
    <block name="ampromo_notification" type="ampromo/notification" template="amasty/ampromo/notification.phtml" before="-" />
    <reference name="content">
        <action ifconfig="ampromo/messages/display_notification" method="append"><block>ampromo_notification</block></action>
    </reference>
</default>

This file shows the content of the template file at top of the content area at the frontend.

I want to show this file content just after the header block ends.

So how can I move this block to the after header?

I have tried this as well in 2columns-left.phtml, but didn't work

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

Currently, the layout files and template files exist in the base>default folder, while I am using the theme folder. So can it be a problem?

Replace

<block name="ampromo_notification" type="ampromo/notification" template="amasty/ampromo/notification.phtml" before="-" />

with this

<block name="ampromo_notification" type="ampromo/notification" template="amasty/ampromo/notification.phtml" after="header" />

<reference name="header">
    <reference name="top.container">
        <block name="ampromo_notification" type="ampromo/notification" template="amasty/ampromo/notification.phtml" after="-" />
    </reference>
</reference>

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

  • using above code, it shows content in header block at the top of page, but I want to show it just after the header ends and just before the content starts. May 16, 2017 at 13:12

This is for after header, inside content, before all other blocks.

<reference name="content">
    <reference name="top.container">
        <block name="ampromo_notification" type="ampromo/notification" template="amasty/ampromo/notification.phtml" before="-" />
    </reference>
</reference>

Or within global_messages (before content)

<reference name="global_messages">
    <reference name="top.container">
        <block name="ampromo_notification" type="ampromo/notification" template="amasty/ampromo/notification.phtml" before="-" />
    </reference>
</reference>

As a last resort you can do stuff like this in template html

echo $this->getLayout()
          ->createBlock('Chapagain\HelloWorld\Block\HelloWorld')
          ->setTemplate('Chapagain_HelloWorld::helloworld.phtml')
          ->toHtml();

And remove the other XML reference. Whilst I appreciate this isn't the best approach we all have deadlines.
