Integration of 2 static blocks in category possible?

Integration of 2 static blocks in category possible?

Hi guys,

I'd like to use two static blocks in some of my Categories.

 

1 on top for a JavaScript, which displays an image

The 2nd on the bottom with come category Text.

 

Do you have a tip how to do it? My Community Edition only allows to choose one Static Block when I open the Category.

 

Thanks

Karo

I would do it using Custom Layout Update.

Hi,

thanks for your reply. I guess this needs a bit knowledge of programming?

Static blocks are so easy to handle, if I just would be able to include two of them. ;-)

Re: Integration of 2 static blocks in category possible?

Well, yes and no. I suggested Custom Layout Update, because it doesn't require changes in code. However it requires understanding how Magento layouts work; which among other things requires you to know how to implement XML updates. Just having a static block is not sufficient as system need to know when and where this block goes. 

 

By the way, there could be an another way to achieve what you want: Widgets. Check out this page:
