Magento: display banners on front page

Running short of time, but i want to share my experience once again on magento: display banner on front page. Best and quicker way to implement this functionality is via magento admin panel. So lets move on to the topic on how to create and show banner on home page.

Step 1: Create static block
Login to magento admin panel and create new static block using “CMS > Static Blocks” having identifier “home_page_static_blocks”.

Step 2: Configure the static block
Go to the “CMS > pages” and edit “Home page” record. Select “Content” tab from left menu and add following statement into html editor section area.

{{block type="cms/block" block_id="home_page_static_blocks"}}

Reload the home page. It will show up the banner on home page.

If you want to develop something like rotating banner then replace single banner with multiple images div areas. Oh yes you can use cycle plugin example data which i have developed in jquery category. You may need to include javascript lib max. it should work. If you need any help let me know, will try my best to help you.
I like when I am writing such simple and quick tricks to save others time, money & developer a** ;).
