This tutorial shows how to manage Magento Static Blocks

Below you will see screenshot with Static Blocks highlighted.

1. In order to change static blocks you should go to admin section, open CMS->Static Blocks.

There you will see list of Static Blocks used in your template. The following Static blocks are used in our template: Footer Links, header_block, footer_block, special, follow_us.

2. Let’s change content of Footer Links block. Open Footer Links block.Sreenshot of code you can check below.

You can change text and set the link. Modified code looks like:

  <li><a href="{{store url=""}}index.php/contacts">Your Text</a></li>
  <li class="last"><a href="http://localhost/ryan/magento162/index.php/catalog/seo_sitemap/category/">Text1 </a></li>

We have changed text and links. Below you will see result of customization in footer.

3. Now we need change content of header_block.

It has the same structure.

Let’s check the link closer. Check for example this item:

 <li><a href="{{store url='customer-service'}}">Customer Service</a></li>

We can set out own link to a href="{{store url=’customer-service’}}". Just replace it with your link. It should look like:

<li><a href="http://livedemo00.template-help.com/magento_38222/catalogsearch/term/popular/">Customer Service</a></li>

Check the screenshot of modified code:

We have checked content of header_block. Result you can check on screenshot below:

4. Let’s change content of Specials block. Original code for block looks like on screenshot below.

4.1. In this block we can modify product link, text and price. You should replace original product link like a href="{{store url=’workstations/lorem-ipsum-sit.html’}} with your own one. You can change text and prices in this module as well. Screenshot of modified code you can check below:

4.2. Now we need to change thumbnail image in Specials block. In our template images are located in skin\frontend\default\theme291\images\media folder. In our template images are called like special_img_1.jpg, etc. Replace original image with modified one. Keep the same dimensions, file name and extension. You can upload modified images using ftp or hosting file manager. Upload your modified image and accept file replacement.

Below you will see screenshot of modified Specials block.

Please perform the same actions for other Magento Static Blocks.
