I'm trying to load a custom phtml for the frontpage. I found this topic and it got me off to the right track.
I created my
and added this code;
<?xml version="1.0"?> <page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="1column" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd"> <referenceContainer name="page.top"> <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="engels_home" template="html/engels_home.phtml"> <arguments> <argument name="section" xsi:type="string">homepage</argument> <argument name="position" xsi:type="number">0</argument> </arguments> </block> </referenceContainer> </page>
So I figured I have to create the .phtml file in
app/design/frontend/theme/skin/Magento_Theme/templates/html/engels_home.phtml based on the logic that a layout file in Magento_Theme would point to a template file in that same structure. I guess I was wrong here, because I saw that other references where made to the Magento_Store folder. So I added the
engels_home.phtml to that folder. And then to the rest. Then I spread it out all over the filesystem just to see what sticks.
Nothing did, my
system.log keeps saying the same thing:
main.CRITICAL: Invalid template file: 'html/engels_home.phtml' in module: '' block's name: 'engels_home'  
no matter where I put the file.
Does anyone know where to put it, or better yet, understand why all of this above wouldn't work? It's driving me nuts at this point.
PS. I'm sorry to knowingly create a "duplicate" post, but this is the downside of the reputation system. I can ask questions, but not (yet) comment on others..
