Is it possible to return all blocks which contain a specific substring? e.g. return all blocks which contain the substring slider_.

I know I can return all blocks loaded in the current page like this:

$allBlocks = Mage::app()->getLayout()->getAllBlocks();
$blockNames = array_keys($allBlocks);


But how can I get ALL blocks, even blocks not loaded at the moment, so I can filter the necessary ones with the target substring out?

Which way is recommended to achieve this?

    $blocks = Mage::getModel("cms/block")->getCollection();
    $searchString = 'slider_';
    foreach($blocks as $block) {
        if (strpos($block->getIdentifier(), $searchString) !== false) {
            echo $block->getIdentifier() . '</br>';
  • Works like a charm!
