In magento 2 I need to edit topmenu.phtml file. So I copied the topmenu.phtml file from:




and edited the file inside my theme module directory. But nothing changed. Someone please help me if am wrong.

Note: I have inherited Blank theme by copying all modules from vendor/magento/theme-frontend-blank into my theme directory.

  • Do you copied the file on app/design/frontend/<vendor_name>/<theme_name>/Magento_Theme/template/html/ folder?? – Asish Hira Apr 20 '16 at 6:28
  • yes. I have given path fully like you said – Ramya Apr 20 '16 at 6:35
  • check my answer – Asish Hira Apr 20 '16 at 6:36

Make sure that you paste the topmenu.phtml file under app/design/frontend/<vendor_name>/<theme_name>/Magento_Theme/templates/html/ folder!

Also copy the layout files which you need app/design/frontend/<vendor_name>/<theme_name>/Magento_Theme/layout folder!

Then delete var folder!

Then Run php bin/magento cache:flush & php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy from your root directory!

Hope this will help you to solve your problem.

    Did you copy layout folder too?? If not then copy that file and paste it also on app/design/frontend/<vendor_name>/<theme_name>/Magento_Theme/templates/html/.Try to enable template path hints and see that from where your template file is coming – Asish Hira Apr 20 '16 at 7:47

    Yes.You are absolutely correct. When I copied the needed part into my xml file which is already present in that folder, It worked. Thank you so much. – Ramya Apr 20 '16 at 7:54

You have to set topmenu.phtml file inside below folder, You have to just create templates folder inside it.


Run commnad php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy clear var folder and try again.

    have you created folder templates inside Magento_Theme, check spelling templates not only template. – Rakesh Jesadiya Apr 20 '16 at 6:54
  • If I create it as templates my contents are disappearing. – Ramya Apr 20 '16 at 6:57
