Add Owl carousel to your pages

Adding Owl carousel to any page requires 2 important steps:

  1. 1) Update owl.xml located in app/design/frontend/base/default/layout/owl.xml
  2. 2) Update page layout to include Owl Carousel


Updating owl.xml

Owl.xml contains important information regarding layout updates within your Magento installation. It tells Magento where to attach the Owl carousel code.

Sample file contents below:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout version="0.1.0">
        <reference name="root">
            <block type="owl/render" name="owl" template="owl/render.phtml">
                <action method="setData">

To change the carousel, update <value></value> tag and set your desired carousel id.


Updating page layout

To render the Owl carousel into any page, edit it's layout and add the following code:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('owl') ?>

When all of the above is complete, the Owl Carousel should render properly in the specified location.
