I want to show a static block only on the catalogsearch page. My catalogsearch page is the same layout as 2columns-left.phtml. I don't really want to make another layout for the catalogsearch. Is there a way that i can show the static block only on the catalogsearch page ?

  • Did you checked catalogsearch.xml? – Suresh Chikani May 8 '18 at 7:14
  • Yes, but how can i set the place the banner will show up there. I want it to show up below the header but above the content of the search... – Jasper1187 May 8 '18 at 7:26

Use below code in 2columns-left.phtml.phtml after

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

this with your block identifier:

    if($route=='catalogsearch' && $controller=="result" &&   $action=='index'){
       $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('block_identifier')->toHtml() ;
  • Thank you, i found the file. The problem now is that it shows in the content side of the 2columns-left. So the banner is not 100%, because it is in: colmain. I need to have it cover the leftbar and col main, so it should be above those 2. – Jasper1187 May 8 '18 at 7:41

  • Thank you very much, had to add 'echo' before the static block code, but after that it worked like a charm! – Jasper1187 May 8 '18 at 8:23
