Today I applied patch SUPEE-6788, and I noticed that the static block on my home page disappeared.
When I reverted the patch, the static block reappeared.
Any thoughts on what I should do about this?
Go to system-permissions-blocks and add the block and set it to allowed.
Not sure I understand - when I go to System/Permissions, the options are Users and Roles.
After applying the patch, you should see two new options: http://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image/703151/1ba9b90f777c412a8fd82380c9899b1c
If they don't show after logging out/into the admin, I would suggest the patch hasn't successfully installed.
How do I know what to call the block? It was created in the CMS and is called home_page_content. I've tried cms/home_page_content and several other ideas, and none have made the block reappear.
Had similar problem.
You need to add the Block Type e.g. block type="catalog/product_list"
Add 'catalog/product_list' to block permissions!
Hope this helps.
I'm having the exact same problem.
But where should i go to find the correct block name?
How do I find out the block type? I created the static block in the CMS. It doesn't say anywhere.
I had the same problem. I added "cms/block" to the list an allowed it. Now everything works for me.
Using cms/block didn't do anything for me. Also tried cms/block/home_page_content.
