After upgarding to the {{block type="cms/block" block_id="home-news-text" template="cms/content.phtml"}} in home page is not displaying the content of the block. I have added the block id in white list but still not appearing. What step am I missing?

  • How did you add it? What does the entry look like? DId you flush the cache inbetween? – Anna Völkl Dec 14 '15 at 7:42
  • Navigating to System => Permissions => Blocks I added the block name and set the allowed to yes, then I refresh the cache or even diabled the cache but still no changes – Zinat Dec 14 '15 at 7:47
  • So, you added "cms/block"? Any errors in your logs? – Anna Völkl Dec 14 '15 at 7:48
  • Notice: Undefined variable: block in /mypath/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Email/Template/Filter.php on line 197 which I guess it's not related to this – Zinat Dec 14 '15 at 7:50
  • Do any of your other cms blocks work? – rob3000 Dec 14 '15 at 7:51

You need to enter the block type="cms/block" instead of the block_id="home-news-text" into the permission form for your blocks to show up.
