Custom blocks are not coming up on front end

I am using magento community edition version:1.9.1.1 with theme Grenada. I am not able to show up custom blocks in frontend. According to Internet resources there should a path System>Permissions>Blocks to add my custom block but there is no such path here.

Can anyone guide me through this please?

Re: Custom blocks are not coming up on front end

Hi,

Thanks for replying. Actually I figured out where I was going wrong. But I
have another doubt. Does a block type uses particular type of template and
if I want to use another template how can I do that.

Re: Custom blocks are not coming up on front end

Yes, you can change template of any block type, as follows:

 

You can use it in layout xml file, cms page:

 

template="my_template/file_name.phtml"

 

Good practice:

You should use default template functions in your own template files. You can change design except business logic.
