Most of the users who have upgraded from 1.9.1 to 1.9.2 would have faced this issue. The Static blocks/widgets in the CMS Home pages and other areas were no longer displaying.

All the latest releases of magento 1.9.2 1.9.3 added a new feature to whitelist the static blocks in the Admin Panel. This prevented the static blocks display in frontend.

To demonstrate the issue i have created a static block as shown below

I have included the static block in CMS Home Page

But My Home page was not rendering the static block

To Resolve this we need to allow the CMS static blocks to be whitelisted. Navigate to System -> Permissions -> Blocks Menu

PermissionBlocks

Allowblocks

BlocksList

Enter Your Block type in Block Name field. Select Is Allowed to Yes

BlocksList
Now after refreshing the home page starts rendering the static block.
