Put this code in the local.xml in your theme folder:

    <reference name="head">
        <action method="addJs"><script>path/to/my/file.js</script></action>
  • Where am I suppose to place this xml file? and does the file have a fixed filename I need to use? Apr 12, 2017 at 13:32
  • You can write this code in local.xml in your theme folder Apr 12, 2017 at 13:35
  • There was a no local.xml in my theme folder so I made one in <theme>/etc/local.xml, but its not included. Is there a command I should be running before it takes effect? Apr 12, 2017 at 14:04
