I have 3 stores on my Magento installation. Each site has its own footer, with content coming from Static Blocks that are allocated to a specific Site View.

This is added to the page via cms.xml. For example:

<block type="cms/block" name="cms_footer_links" before="footer_links_ic">
The content of this block is taken from the database by its block_id.
You can manage it in admin CMS -> Static Blocks
<action method="setBlockId"><block_id>footer_links_ic</block_id></action>

This was fine until recently, when I noticed that suddenly all the sites had the same footer. I hadn't changed anything relating to the footers; although maybe the recent update to 1.9.2 was responsible?

Anyway, I don't understand why the footers now don't work properly. Please help, it's driving me crazy. I don't know where to even start on this.

  • do they work correctly with the cache off?

Phil this sounds like a bug which was reported in v1.9.2. Here it gives a tempory solution:

Temporary Fix Disable the Blocks HTML output cache and the blocks displayed are correctly.

I have also been told that the Rkt_SbCache module fixes the issue. I haven't tried and tested it yet but it may solve your issue.
