I have been trying to add some static blocks below the category menu in the left column on the category page and product pages.

I have two questions:

1. Which files do I need to edit to add the blocks on the category and product page?

2. What is the correct code I should use for adding blocks in the appropriate files found in step 1?

I have attached an Image to show what I am trying to achieve.

Can anyone help me with this?

Regards

Paul
