Add static block into “home” category from backend

HI,

 

I saw that in possible add a static block from the category management into Magento backend as you can see in picture

 

Screen

 

I tried to add the static block and to display it but it doesn't work.

 

I want to display a different static block for each categories that I have (e.g. for the category 1 I want display a gallery with only pictures that are about the specific category also a little banner that have a specific content for the specific category, and so for every category)

 

How can I fix it? I prefer to manage it from the backend

Re: Add static block into “home” category from backend

Hi,

 

You need to set up the Display Mode as per your requirement.

 

There are 3 Options - 

1. Products Only - Only display products listing from particular category

 

2. Static Block Only - You need to set the CMS block by selecting your static block from the drop-down. This option will only show your static block content on category page.

 

3. Static block & Products  - This option will allow you to add both static block & product on category page,

 

Make sure your static block is enabled & selected in the dropdown with required Display mode set in from above options.
