I am creating custom module for practicing. app/code/local/Amactech/Events/etc/config.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>












<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout version="0.1.0">
    <update handle="page_two_columns_left" />




    class Amactech_Events_IndexController extends Mage_Core_Controller_Front_Action{
        public function indexAction(){
            return $this->renderLayout();


So whatever whatever changes (whether right or wrong) are made into events.xml file does not reflect to frontend page. The second thing is in events.xml I defined page_two_columns_left but it is showing page with right column. It seems that config.xml file is not loading events.xml file

Can anyone point out that what I did wrong?


I think your handler should be


Instead of

  • I tried handler events12_index_index but still not working. – Ahmar Arshad Dec 27 '16 at 7:26
  • @AhmarArshad print_r($this->getLayout()->getUpdate()->getHandles()); add this code in your controller index action and see which handler its showing – Murtuza Zabuawala Dec 27 '16 at 8:18
