Custom Feed Blocks not using their existing Templates

Go to solution Solved by Stuart Silvester,

Recommended Posts

I have been a little AWOL for the last year and so I haven't upgraded a lot recently. I went ahead and did an upgrade from 4.6.9 to 4.6.11 beta 1 to settle down and get looking around.

I fixed my template issue with global template but once that was resolved I noted that none of my blocks (which all use customized templates) are using their code in any way shape or form which is totally screwing up a lot of things.


(Please note this is with the default theme but even here I shouldn't see half of this information) With its custom template it should look something like this:



What it appears to be doing on all of my custom record feed templates is just outputting the default feed template which is recordrow.


  • I've cleared site cache.
  • I've re-saved the block with its custom code.
  • I have verified that the code is correct in the block settings.

Not sure where to go from here. Thanks.

Yes. Updated my password just in case it was out of date.

That one in particular is 3 blocks within a block so it may be easier to look at recent-news block which should be a carousel but if you want to look at the specifically screenshotted ones:

Outer block: {block="requests-station"}
Inner blocks:



For reference if you want to choose the easier one:

What it does look like:


I put both sets of blocks on a test page for you:

So that you can view it in the IPS Support Theme which is my uncustomized theme. Things will disappear as there is a lot of CSS that goes into both but I determined it doesn't have the code because on the front end in Developer Tools they just don't exists.


Thanks @Jim M

Hate to piggy-back off this thread, but would this keep Custom Block with simple code from appearing completely? I've been trying to figure out why some of my custom blocks with html/php are not showing at all.

I have a simple Custom Block with simple link & image code.  The block will not show up on either my custom theme or the default IPS theme.

Block Name: 
Upgrade Now
