I want to call a static block into another static block if the right conditions are met. I believe that my main problem is how to register the template in XML, as I never worked with it before.
First off I have a static block with the code: footer02-links. Here I'm trying to call my template file. I realise that the code below is missing the XML tags.
Then in the themes template folder in /custom/employee-links-template.phtml I have my conditional statement.
<?php if (Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->isLoggedIn() && Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomerGroupId() == "4") :?> <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('employee-links') ?> <?php endif;?>
So if the customer is logged in and part of customer group with ID 4, they will be shown the static block with the code: employee-links. In this static block I simply have a link to a otherwise hidden category.
<li><a title="Employee Offers" href="/employee-offers.phtml">Employee Monthly Offers</a></li>
So I guess my problem is how to register the block in the local.xml file, which I really have no idea of how to do. Furthermore there might be a better way to do what I'm trying to achieve?
