My theme have supplied a newsletter theme /frontend/galio/ma_galio1/template/newsletter/subscribe.phtml

I am using this block on my footer PS: This block is pre-supplied with my theme

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

I don't know why the block doesn't show on my site
Here's the footer. Interestingly, I don't see the footer when I turned on template hints.


<div class="ma-footer-container">
<div class="footer-static-container"> 
    <div class="footer-static-2">
        <div class="container">
            <?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('footer_static_2')->toHtml() ?>


<div class="footer-static">
    <div class="container">
        <?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('footer_static')->toHtml() ?>
<div class="footer">
    <div class="container">
        <div class="box-left">
            <?php echo $this->getChildHtml("footer_links") ?>
            <address><?php echo $this->getCopyright() ?></address>
        <?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('payment')->toHtml() ?>
        <?php echo $this->getChildHtml("store_switcher")?>


<div id="back-top" class="hidden-xs"></div>

The problem is permission of static block. In admin: go System->Permission->blocks Add New Blocks

Block Name: newsletter/subscribe

Is Allowed: Yes
