when placing cms block in our website footer like thi with the code below. We see that the block id 'shopper_footer_links' is not picked up as a separate block. (when testing with template hints + Add add Block Names to Hints it is not shown). The only block name we see is html_footer (and not the blocks that reside within it). 

I am asking  because we use LEsti FPC and do not want to cache shopper_footer_links. But if it is not recognized as a block it cannot be cached/not-cached separately. 

**question:** is there an easy way so Magento does see it as a separate block id? Or does this involve writing an extension (adding the html to something like footer_after)?

Many thanks, Sean

I tried these two methods. Same outcome.

		<?php echo $this->getBlockHtml('shopper_footer_links'); ?>

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

and in layout xml

		<reference name="footer">
		<block type="cms/block" name="shopper_footer_links" after="shopper_footer_links">
			<action method="setBlockId"><block_id>shopper_footer_links</block_id></action>
