  • it should be under js/varien/provfvfvfvf.js then it will work fine – Pradeep Sanku Aug 17 '15 at 8:40
  • my file path is /skin/frontend/tm_themes/theme724/js/lib/elevatezoom/jquery.elevateZoom-3.0.8.min.js – konika Aug 17 '15 at 8:42

You have specify the Handle. If you want to add the js files for all page use default handle. i.e.,

    <reference name="head">
        <action method="addJs"><script>varien/provfvfvfvf.js</script></action>

Or else you want to add only one page

I use this snippet:

<action method="addItem"><type>skin_js</type><name>js/script.js</name></action>


Add layout update in module's config app/code/.../Your/Module/etc/config.xml


Put it in layout update file app/design/frontend/base/default/layout/your_module.xml

    <reference name="head">
        <action method="addItem"><type>skin_js</type><name>js/script.js</name></action>

I used handle default but you can use any other handle, according to your needs, e.g. yourmodule_controller_action.

Your js file should be in skin/frontend/base/default/js/script.js.

  • under which tag you used it? – konika Aug 17 '15 at 8:51
  • <reference name="head"> You can place your js file in skin/frontend/base/default/... – mkutyba Aug 17 '15 at 8:55
