    @ee08172df3fdcadfbd7927678637d1b5:disqus Because there are lot of situation when you might need this, I am building a module that prints out HTML as final result and I want to have static block for each instance of my module, so the admin will be able to place them anywhere he/she wants as static block.Also it can help you understand static blocks better :)

    Because we can.. And because copy/pasting 150 blocks/pages into Magento takes a lot longer.

    Nice snippet….can we use it when activating theme… ??? Do we have event for activating theme in magento ?? so, we can create block/page when theme is activated. I need it for ready to use theme…
