Magento. How to add a static blocks to product details pages

  1. Navigate to CMS -> Static Block -> Add New Block:

    Magento_how_to_add_a_static_block_to_product_page_1

  2. Create static block. We will use "contact_info_widget" as Identifier:

  3. Open the file app/design/frontend/default/themeXXX/layout/catalog.xml. It is a layout file for the catalog module. Find the reference below:

    <catalog_product_view>
  4. Add the following code right below the reference:

    <reference name="left">
    	<block type="cms/block" name="contact_info_widget" before="-">
    		<action method="setBlockId"><block_id>contact_info_widget</block_id></action>
    	</block>
    </reference>
  5. In case your template comes with right sidebar area, you should change the reference name from “left” to “right”:

    <reference name="right">
    	<block type="cms/block" name="contact_info_widget" before="-">
    		<action method="setBlockId"><block_id>contact_info_widget</block_id></action>
    	</block>
    </reference>
