Try like this,

<reference name="checkout.cart">

   <block type="test/test" before="coupon" name="custom-block"  template="test/cart_test.phtml" />

</reference>

call your custom block before coupon in app\design\frontend\package\theme\template\checkout\cart.phtml,

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('custom-block'); ?>

 <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('coupon') ?>

Try this way:

<checkout_cart_index>
    <reference name="checkout.cart">
            <block type="test/test" before="checkout.cart.coupon"   template="test/cart_test.phtml" />
    </reference>
</checkout_cart_index>

Hope this helps.

If the XML isn't working for you then the easiet way to inject your cms block is the php code snippet.

Try the following and it will inject the block:

  • Open your cart.phtml file and locate the div/html section where you would like your block to appear and paste the following code there.

    <?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock("cms/block")->setBlockId("your-static-block-id")->toHtml();?>

  • i am creating the ext bro Aug 3, 2015 at 15:00
  • Okay, in that case, have you tried clearing your cache? Make sure it's disabled whilst your project is in dev mode. Have you also tried to inject any other block except the one you created? Is the block set to enabled? What is the scope of the static block? Aug 4, 2015 at 15:12
  • it is developer mode and cache is disabled.no other block in added there. Aug 4, 2015 at 15:14
