Add custom JS file to theme

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm trying to add a custom JS file. I created it under the js folder of my theme, but when I try to manually include it in the header.tpl file as:


	<script type="text/javascript" src="/themes/mytheme/js/myfile.js"></script>


PS displays it at the end of the HTML code and not in the <head> section.

 

Why is that? What is the best way to include a new js file?

It depends where you want to add the JS.. for all pages? CMS pages?

For example, if you wanted to add to cms pages, you would enter code as follows in cmscontroller.php under public function setMedia() just add a new line with your custom JS

public function setMedia()
	{
		parent::setMedia();
		
		if ($this->assignCase == 1)
		     $this->addJS(_THEME_JS_DIR_.'cms.js');
		     $this->addJS(_THEME_JS_DIR_.'some-custom-js.js');
	}

		     $this->addJS(_THEME_JS_DIR_.'some-custom-js.js');
	}

 

Well there is one JS I'd like to add to all page, and another just for product pages... but I wouldn't mind and them both to all pages...

 

So am I allowed to directly edit the controller files? Or should I override them?

and which file should I edit in order to place the JS in all pages?

I've read something about FrontController, but I guess this one doesn't exist in PS1.6

I did something similar with my shop but only needed the JS for me cms pages and it has worked flawlessly so I see no reason why you can not use the same method with yours. Of course, always make a backup of the file before making and changes in case something goes screwy :)

 

There is another method using Tools::addJs() to the tpl file but I don't know the exact syntax - maybe someone else can chime in on this one

I am still on 1.5.3 so I am not sure about that. Maybe this could help or if someone else knows which controller to edit they can answer here???

it would be a 'lot' faster to create a module that does nothing but hook to header and issue addJS as suggested by whispar.

Thank you, I tried your suggestion.

 

I was struggling with the following piece of code for Facebook's like button. I needed to include it anywhere on the page.

<div id="fb-root"></div>
<script>(function(d, s, id) {
  var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
  if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
  js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
  js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js";
  fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>

I finally created a simple module as you suggested, with a tpl file that includes only this code (it didn't work with the addJS method, the like button wouldn't load). I ended up hooking it to the footer instead of the header because PS basically takes all javascripts together and puts them at the end, right before </body>

 

I'm not sure why PS is behaving this way. Is it some kind of setting that we can change?

 

Anyway it works for me for that issue, and to include the google analytics code.

You can also put yours js file to /themes/your-theme/js/autoload if you want to add js to all page.

header.tpl file located in your theme directory. 

you can also use modules like html box free or contentbox to insert custom content to your website.

it's for performance purposes.

i will be honest with you,

you can paste this code at the end of the website (in footer section)

it will work too :)

hello, i'm trying to install sumome script but it keep on showing this error:

 

Your SumoMe script tag is missing a valid site id. Here's a new one for you, just copy & paste it over your current one.

 

 

i contacted sumome and they said i should contact prestashop.

 

how should i resolve this issue?

 

-update:

 

prestashop remove a part of code

 

instead of:

<script src="//load.sumome.com/" data-sumo-site-id="jajskjaksjkfnmdnmdnmnsd" async>

 

it includes just this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://load.sumome.com/"></script>
