Good morning, it seems my footer content has disappeared and I don't know where to. I want to put the newsletter module in there, but it completely vanished. here's the code that I added temporarily which is supposed to make it show up. It's not working. (I found that code off of Google, but most results seem to be 2009 or 2010)

{{block type="newsletter/subscribe" name="footer.newsletter" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}}

for the static block and

{{block type="cms/block" block_id="newsletter"}}

for the CMS page. I've checked if the phtml and xml files have their necessary bits of code in them; subscribe.phtml is still "out-of-the-box", and once again, it is there

    <reference name="footer">
        <block type="newsletter/subscribe" name="footer.newsletter" as="newsletter" before="-" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"/>

Can you help me figure out how to show the newsletter module (or static blocks in general) in the footer as it is supposed to be, please? Much appreciated, thanks.

  • removed from "page.xml", no changes; I can hardly remove it from "newsletter.xml", now can I?

  • since adding a backend-login won't really help, here's the .xml-files: xml-files

You can call newsletter at footer by using php code

    echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock("newsletter/subscribe")
  • I suppose I have to add that in the template file?

  • aside from the typo "`" at the end of newsletter, it hasn't changed the site.
