  • It could be theme related. Have you checked with magento's default theme? Apr 15, 2020 at 5:58

    So after investigating, it looks like the new magento is throwing out your old layout, and using it's own. you was able to copy/paste the block code into the 2columns-right.phtml and it is working as it should now. link :- community.magento.com/t5/Magento-1-x-Technical-Issues/… Apr 18, 2020 at 12:04
