Changes to Static Block are not appearing on front end of website

A static block is being used to create our home page design.  I went into the block today to make only content changes but none of the changes show on the homepage.  I have flushed the cache, refreshed the page, and have also cleaned the cache manually through html/var/cache.  

 

website is www.knitandpearls.com

 

 

This is the Page Layout XML for the homepage design:

<reference name="header">
<block type="cms/block" name="header_slider">
<action method="setBlockId"><block_id>header_slider</block_id></action>
</block>
</reference>
<reference name="home_content">
<block type="cms/block" name="home_content">
<action method="setBlockId"><block_id>home_content</block_id></action>
</block>
</reference>
<reference name="content">
<block type="catalog/product_new" name="home.catalog.product.new" alias="product_new" template="catalog/product/new.phtml" after="cms_page">
<action method="setColumnCount"><columns>4</columns></action>
<action method="setProductsCount"><count>4</count></action>
<action method="addPriceBlockType"><type>bundle</type><block>bundle/catalog_product_price</block><template>bundle/catalog/product/price.phtml</template></action>
<action method="unsetData"><key>cache_lifetime</key></action>
<action method="unsetData"><key>cache_tags</key></action>
</block>
</reference>

 

and this is what I have for the content on the home_content static block

 

<div class="clear"></div>
<div class=about-padd-2>
<div class="page-title">

Re: Changes to Static Block are not appearing on front end of website

Hi,

It may be not right place you change your code.

 

To know which template file use in which block then go to admin : system -> configuration -> Developer -> Debug                      -> Template Path Hints select Yes and save it. 

 

If Template Path Hints not showing then select Main website on  drop down box Current Configuration Scope: (top left side of your page).

 

After save go to front-end refresh the page it will show you template path which use on that block.

 

When you done your work again go to admin section and revert the all changes.

 

If your Problem solved then marked as accept.

 

Thanks,

Dibyajyoti 

Re: Changes to Static Block are not appearing on front end of website

Under Debug, my only option is Profiler.  It's set to no right now.  Is that what you want me to change to YES?

Re: Changes to Static Block are not appearing on front end of website

Sorry,  I ended up finding this and did as you said.  I saw all the paths for many parts of the homepage but there was nothing for the main content on the page.

If you are using a multi store website then their is a possibility that you may changing the content for different store. Also check if you have any third party cache installed if so then try to clear that cache and check.

If you are using CE 1.9.2.2 or above, make sure you give permissions to your static block.  System > Permissions > Blocks.  (catalog/product_new, etc)
