To your local.xml file (which you should be using rather than editing individual xml files), add:
<layout> <contacts_index_index><!-- the page to be edited, found in its original xml file --> <reference name="content"><!-- Structural Block where placing Static Block --> <block type="cms/block" name="your_block_identifier"> <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>your_block_identifier</block_id></action> </block> </reference> </contacts_index_index> </layout>
If you already have an existing local.xml, you won’t need to include <layout>. If the page you want to edit already has existing changes in local.xml, you only to add the <reference> bit and its contents.
