I need to insert a block before the footer in single page cms (magento 1.9).

I tried to do it by using layout.

I have added below code in my layout file :

<reference name="footer">
    <block type="cms/block" name="latte_asina_footer" before="-" >  
           <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>latte-asina-footer</block_id></action>  

but it is not working.

can you help me?

Suppose the identifier of the static block you want to call is latte-asina-footer, please follow below steps to call the block on particular CMS page footer only.

  • Go to CMS -> Pages and open the particular page, in which you want to call the static block.
  • Click on Design tab and put below XML in the Custom Layout Update XML section textarea.

call custom static block in particular cms page in footer

<reference name="footer">
    <block type="cms/block" name="custom-footer" before="-" >
        <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>custom-footer</block_id></action>
  • Save the page and flush Magento cache before trying to see the changes in the frontend.
  • not work for me
