I have a problem for add a simple JavaScript on my admin dashboard.

I have create a local.xml with my folder theme but no result.


        <reference name="head">
            <action method="addJs"><script>mytheme/jquery.js</script></action>      

Thanks for your help.

  • Is your custom admin theme applied? If so, did you get any 404 error for mytheme/jquery.js? Commented Jan 18, 2016 at 12:32
  • did you set theme for admin? Commented Jan 18, 2016 at 12:37
  • I have set my theme here: Design\Package\Current Package Name Commented Jan 18, 2016 at 12:59
  • That is for setting the frontend theme. There is no backend option for setting a backend theme in Magento so far.
