I have a custom module. I need to add it in home page of my site. I have added block in the content section of my home page. But it didn't display anything. I have also tried the layout part of home page and the result is as in the previous case. These are my codes

This is the code I have tried in the content section of home CMS page

{{block type="banner/banner" name="home_banner" template="banner/homenewpro.phtml"}}

This is the code I have tried in the layout part(within content section) of home CMS page.

<block type="banner/banner" name="home_banner" template="banner/banner.phtml" />

What is the problem with this code? What I have made wrong with these codes? Help me guys.... Thanks in advance..

  • Check the banner.xml file in your template folder – Keyul Shah Jan 24 '14 at 3:21
  • @KeyulShah i have tried this code <layout version="0.1.0"> <banner_index_index> <reference name="root"> <action method="setTemplate"> <template>page/1column.phtml</template> </action> </reference> <reference name="content"> <block type="banner/banner" name="home_banner"> </block> </reference> </banner_index_index> </layout> when i look into the page, the page layout become 1column. however content block is not displaying. my phtml file echo 'test' in it. – Rajeev K Tomy Jan 24 '14 at 3:43
  • i have also tried this <block type="banner/banner" name="home_banner" template="banner/banner.phtml"/> and this <block type="banner/banner" name="home_banner" />. still not displaying the content – Rajeev K Tomy Jan 24 '14 at 3:46

First of all make sure the file Karaokeshop/Banner/Block/Banner.php exists and contains this class.

class Karaokeshop_Banner_Block_Banner extends Mage_Core_Block_Template{
   //class methods here
}

also make sure the template banner/homenewpro.phtml exists in app/design/frontend/{package}/{theme}/template.
Just to make sure, you can place it in app/design/frontend/base/default/template.

I hope you also created the declaration file app/etc/modules/Karaokeshop_Banner.xml with this content.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config>
    <modules>
        <Karaokeshop_Banner>
            <codePool>local</codePool>
            <active>true</active>
            <depends>
                <Mage_Core />
            </depends>
        </Karaokeshop_Banner>
    </modules>
</config>

Clear the cache, disable the compilation and give it an other try.

You can also enable the logging from System->Configuration->Developer and check var/log for any errors.

Is your template file including only <?php echo "test"?>....? If so then try adding some HTML tags in it like "div". As you see in other magento template files, A phtml file is a combo of both HTML and PHP. So edit your phtml file accordingly and give it a try.
