Home page static blocks not in CMS/Static Blocks/

I’m on Ultimo 1.15.4, Magento 1.9.2.3. Everything has worked like clockwork until reaching the Styling the Home page video in the Designing a Responsive $99 website course.

The problem I have is that none of the home page static blocks appear in the CMS/Static blocks/ configuration area (except the Home Slide ones which are there). I have tried going to Theme Settings and importing static blocks but no new blocks are imported.

Is this a version problem> I am aware of the whitelisting required by a security updaye, but this is not that issue as the blocks do not appear a tall in the configuration area.

a lot of static block were depreciated in ultimo ver. 15 onwards. work with a grid to achieve any layout and display any content in any of the grid containers. Check ultimo‘s user manual for exact list of depreciated blocks.

Would be useful if the video or the write up under the video was updated in that case – as others will also waste time wondering why the blocks are not there when they get to this section.

Revising to provide a current set up for the home page would be very useful.

Hi,
They are now created via widgets.
Create a block the same way as the video if it doesn’t exist, then go to widgets under the CMS tab
and
Add create a new widget
Choose CMS Static Block and Ultimo Child
then give it a title and choose All Store Views
Choose Widget options from the left and define the static block
Press Save and Continue Edit
Then Add a layout Upates
Choose Specified Page
Then choose ‘CMS Homepage’ and ‘Right Column’

Done

Don’t forget to clear the Cache..

Regards
Jon
