Magento – Display static block directly into your .phtml file

Static block is the easiest way to display your HTML content into your Magento eCommerce template. Suppose you have some static content or banner in your header that will change in every week or once in a month and wish to appear on the home page. Well, you can do that with static block functionality. Once you have created static block you can update with replacing content, image or anything you want to display.
