I have create a custom theme and it has been register but it does not read layout & Templates.

File location: app/design/frontend/Amit/Customtheme/composer.json

    "name": "magento/theme-frontend-Customtheme",
    "description": "N/A",
    "require": {
        "php": "~5.5.0|~5.6.0|~7.0.0",
        "magento/theme-frontend-blank": "100.0.*",
        "magento/framework": "100.0.*"
    "type": "magento2-theme",
    "version": "100.0.2",
    "license": [
    "autoload": {
        "files": [



And: theme.xml

<theme xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Config/etc/theme.xsd">
<title>Amit Customtheme</title>

And then try to add css/js files from app/design/frontend/Amit/Customtheme/Magento_Theme/layout/default_head_blocks.xml

        <script src="js/bootstrap.min.js"/>
        <script src="js/easy-responsive-tabs.js"/>
        <script src="js/jquery-ui.js"/>


but this layout files does not read because of when i have check page view source then not see css/js files which are default_head_blocks.xml. Only see blank theme's css /js file

<link  rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"  media="all" href="http://example.com/pub/static/frontend/Amit/Customtheme/en_US/mage/calendar.css" />
<link  rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"  media="all" href="http://example.com/pub/static/frontend/Amit/Customtheme/en_US/css/styles-m.css" />

Why it does not read layout/ template files from custom theme.What i am going wrong at Theme configuration?

  • Did you run bin/magento setup:upgrade, enabled the theme from admin and deployed the content? – g5wx Apr 4 '16 at 7:31
  • yes , i have already done both command – Amit Bera Apr 4 '16 at 7:37
  • Is the template visible in your admin? – g5wx Apr 4 '16 at 7:41
  • I have already set a that Amit/Customtheme theme at admin.You see ttp://example.com/pub/static/frontend/Amit/Customtheme/en_US .. called that means theme is registered – Amit Bera Apr 4 '16 at 7:46
  • change "name": "magento/theme-frontend-Customtheme", to "name": "magento/theme-frontend-blank", this issue i only found – Qaisar Satti Apr 4 '16 at 7:46

Check current store scope? Do you create new store for custom theme
Flush cache and re-deploy static files. I already test in magento 2 version 2.0.4 developer mode . My custom theme loaded successful

From backend make sure magento loaded your theme in tab Content\Design\Themes If it loaded check your current store that your theme setup enter image description here
