On Magento patch1 a cms page content disappears when I add a block like:

{{block type="imprint/field" value="shop_name"}}.

If I remove it, the page (text) content is back again.

Anybody an idea where this could come from? It is the same with all blocks added like this.

  • i have usure that "if u remove ` {{block type="imprint/field" value="shop_name"}}.` then that page are totally blank – Amit Bera Dec 1 '15 at 9:57
  • did you add them to your block whitelist? – Robin Dec 1 '15 at 10:05
  • Block whitelist? What is this? – Bernhard Prange Dec 1 '15 at 10:08
  • I I remoce {{block ... }} the other text content of the pages is beeing shown. – Bernhard Prange Dec 1 '15 at 10:09

You have to whitelist your block types. You can add them with your database installation script or add them manually in System > Permissions > Blocks:

Magento now includes a white list of allowed blocks or directives. If a module or extension uses variables like {{config path=”web/unsecure/base_url”}} and {{block type=rss/order_new}} in CMS pages or emails, and the directives are not on this list, you will need to add them with your database installation script. Extensions or custom code that handles content (like blog extensions) might be affected.


As alternative solution.

goto Design tab of Your cms page

Put below layout xml code at Layout Update XML field

<reference name="content">
<block type="imprint/field" value="shop_name" />

Hope i will resolve ur issue

  • Hi Amit. No it does not. No changes. It is concerning ALL Blocks, not just this one.... at least every block I put in like that {{block ... }} – Bernhard Prange Dec 1 '15 at 10:07
