I've to add the div to the replace div "container hidden-print". But I didn't want that funcionality from the web_blog module, core developers should think in don't crash system when the xpath is not found.

I have updated my answer. You just need to make your module depends on website_blog.

When your inheritance of template website.footer_default is changed entire structure of the DIV with class "container hidden-print". But same template is inherited by website_blog module and put some information inside "div[@id='info']/ul". So, website_blog do not get the particular XPATH inside parent view due to your inheritance and replace entire DIV.

So, you have to take care while replace inside any template. To avoid such kind of error you have to inherit templates and replace its content which are dependent on the main template.

Update : Another solution : You just need to put website_blog module inside your 'depends' list of __openerp__.py file.

I hope it is clear to you. If you have any question please write it down.
