I have a few links in the home page. for e.g. link1 , link2, link3 When I click link1 want to load the page link1.phtml , link2 to load link2.phtml and link3 to load link3.phtml

Know it is possible to create a page in admin cms and then loading the page. But is it possible to do it in the local.xml file without touching the admin . The reason is I have about 15 links on the home page that needs to be showing some information.

Please can anyone help with the codes

New Link

How to map this to a link or please correct me if my approach is wrong

Follow this Link to create custom module with controller

Then create new actions for each links in your controller file


public function link1Action()

Now you have change the content of each page, So you need to change in layout file


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<layout version="0.1.0">
        <reference name="root">
            <action method="setTemplate">
        <reference name="content">
            <block type="core/template" name="arithmetic_integer_multiply" template="yourfolder/link1.phtml"></block>

Like this you can add more action for each links.

To link for these pages


Here arithmetic ->your module name integer -> your controller link1 -> your action.
