Is there any way to use fotorama slider in CMS pages?


<div id="fotorama_test" class="fotorama">
  <img src="https://s.fotorama.io/1.jpg">

Yes. CMS page content is very straight forward as describe here

Note : I put my fotorama CMS page content in ans section for better readability. I am not giving the full ans of your queation as @PЯINCƏ already answered it.

1) My fotorama CMS page content :

    <div class="fotorama"  data-allowfullscreen="native"  data-transition="crossfade" data-nav="thumbs"  data-width="700" data-ratio="700/467" data-max-width="100%">
<img src="{{media url="wysiwyg/1-lo.jpg"}}" /> 
    <img src="{{media url="wysiwyg/2-lo.jpg"}}" /> 
    <img src="{{media url="wysiwyg/5-lo.jpg"}}" /> 
    <img src="{{media url="wysiwyg/6-lo.jpg"}}" /> 
    <img src="{{media url="wysiwyg/9-lo.jpg"}}" />
    <p>{{block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" template="Magento_Theme::fotorama_slider.phtml"}}

2) My app/design/frontend/{Vendor}/{theme}/requirejs-config.js

var config = {
    "map": {
        '*' : {              
               'fotorama': 'js/fotorama'

3) My app/design/frontend/{Vendor}/{theme}/web/js/fotorama.js

Note : I have downloaded fotorama.js from https://fotorama.io/ and put the fotorama.js lib code in that file (app/design/frontend/{Vendor}/{theme}/web/js/fotorama.js) just below the line //put the fotorama.js content here (you get it from your library)

 * Fotorama 4.6.4 | http://fotorama.io/license/
define(['jquery'], function($){
   "use strict";
       return function fotorama()
           //alert('load fotorama OK');

           var fotoramaVersion;
           //put the fotorama.js content here (you get it from your library)
           fotoramaVersion="4.6.4",function(a,b,c,d,e){"use strict";function f......

At Fronted it look ilks:

  • It finally works now after using your app/design/frontend/{Vendor}/{theme}/web/js/fotorama.js) code! :) I even attempted it before myself...but I put the var directly at the fotoramaVersion and not like you did... bruh. If you remove use strict; then it works too. Thanks :) – Black Dec 20 '19 at 14:19

    Good to know that it works finally. Thank you. – Pritam Info 24 Dec 20 '19 at 14:24



<?xml version="1.0"?>

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <css src="css/fotorama.css" />



var config = {
    map: {
        '*': {
            fotorama: 'js/fotorama'


define(['jquery'], function($){
   "use strict"; // <-- this might cause some problems which you need to resolve, otherwise the code won't work. You can also just remove it.
       return function fotorama()
           alert('load fotorama OK');
           //put the fotorama.js content here (you get it from your library)


<script type="text/javascript">
    require(['jquery', 'fotorama'], function($, fotorama) {

and finaly you load your fotorama slider (fotorama_slider.phtml) into your cms page like this :

{{block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" template="Magento_Theme::fotorama_slider.phtml"}} 

Info: don't forget to :

  • clean the cache

  • clean var/view_preprocessed content

  • clean pub/static content

  • deploy the static content = php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f
