I wanted to add script code to implement "LiveChat" functionality on just three pages of our website. So, I wanted to add one script code given by our LiveChat agency into three webpages of our website.

Script Code

<script src="http://www.examp.com/scripts/invitation.ashx?company=4444"></script> 

So, I have created three separate html node templates based on their node ID.

Theses three custom node templates are under

/sites/all/themes/mytheme/templates along with (node.tpl.php and html.tpl.php)

  1. (contact page) html--node--28.tpl.php

Url of this page: www.example.com/contact

  1. (admissions page) html--node--1212.tpl.php

Url of this page: www.example.com/admissions

  1. (market page) html--node--378.tpl.php

Url of this page: www.example.com/market

Code used in all custom node templates (html--node--28.tpl.php, html--node--1212.tpl.php, html--node--378.tpl.php) is the same:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="<?php print $language->language; ?>" version="XHTML+RDFa 1.0" dir="<?php print $language->dir; ?>"<?php print $rdf_namespaces; ?>>
<head profile="<?php print $grddl_profile; ?>">
  <?php print $head; ?>
  <title><?php print $head_title; ?></title>
  <?php print $styles; ?>
<body<?php print $attributes;?>>
<?php print $scripts; ?>
//Adding script for LiveChat
<script src="http://www.examp.com/scripts/invitation.ashx?company=4444"></script>
  <div id="skip-link">
    <a href="#main-content" class="element-invisible element-focusable"><?php print t('Skip to main content'); ?></a>
  <?php print $page_top; ?>
  <?php print $page; ?>
  <?php print $page_bottom; ?>

But, I am not able to see my script (<script src="http://www.examp.com/scripts/invitation.ashx?company=4444"></script>) when I debugged it in view pagesource.


  • Just to double check cus you didn't mention doing it, did you clear you cache after adding these template files?

  • If you make a change to your html.tpl.php file in that containing folder, do your other pages get changed? And do these pages change?

  • Yes, if I add this <script> code into my html.tpl.php file then I can see changes in all the pages. But, if I add this script in three node id pages, then I am not able to see any change.

Instead of adding three template files for three nodes with the same content in it in my opinion will be a better solution to add the JS file conditionally using drupal_add_js

For eg:

 $allowed_nid = array(28, 1212, 38);
 if(in_array(arg(1), $allowed_nid)){
  drupal_add_js("http://www.examp.com/scripts/invitation.ashx?company=4444", "external");

You can add the snippet in a hook_init function in any of your custom modules. (Best is add in a custom utility module which hold all general function to be used throughout.) Else you can add it in your theme's template.php in the template_preprocess_page function.

  • Thanks Malabya .. Where should I add this function? Should I add it in template.php file?

  • @Vidushi Have updated the answer with it. :) Jun 12, 2015 at 14:33
  • Awesome.. Thanks. Instead of just three nodes, Can we make it available for under entire 'Admissions' sections? I mean all the subpages of 'Admissions' section?

  • What do you mean by subpages? As per my understanding from your question its better to have 3 separate pages. Jun 12, 2015 at 20:33
  • Yes, that is correct. But, now my client wants it on all the admissions pages as well. If 2.0 Admissions, 2.1 - About admissions, 2.1.2 - Contact us, 2.1.3,2.1.4, 2.3,2.4... So, all the subpages of Admissions along with three different pages.

You can do this to your html.tpl.php

<?php $node = menu_get_object();
      if ($node && $node->nid == NID):?>

<--! Your script goes here -->

<?php endif;?>
