I am trying to add the store's phone number setup in Stores > Configuration > General > General > Store Information to the header in my theme. In a module I think this could be done using getValue() in \Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface but I cannot see a way how to use this inside a theme. So far I have added this to default.xml

 <referenceContainer name="header-wrapper">
      <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="store.phone.number" template="Magento_Theme::phone.phtml" />

but I do not know how to get the phone number inside phone.phtml


I suggest you create your own block, which will extend the Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template class.

As the Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface is part of Magento\Framework\View\Element\AbstractBlock (the parent of the Template class) declared in $_scopeConfig, you can add the following function to your custom block:

public function getConfig()
    return $this->_scopeConfig;

Then in your template you can do:


Don't forget to update your layout like this:

<referenceContainer name="header-wrapper">
      <block class="Vendor\Module\Block\View\Element\Template" name="store.phone.number" template="Magento_Theme::phone.phtml" />

  • Having to create a module to work with the theme doesn't seem a very elegant way of doing it (although it looks like it might be the only way). Surely this will cause problems for theme developers that are publishing themes – Alex Apr 22 '16 at 9:18
  • @Alex yes using the object manager directly is definitely easier but it is not recommended to use it directly. So there's two options, quick and dirty or slow and clean ^^ – Raphael at Digital Pianism Apr 22 '16 at 9:20
  • @Alex Theme developers have always shipped their themes with theme specific modules and I don't know of any problems. It actually is an elegant solution. Having much PHP code in templates isn't. – Fabian Schmengler Apr 22 '16 at 14:36

We can directly get a store config in the template by getting instance of Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfig:


Technically, when someone asks for an instance of Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface, we will give it an instance of the Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfig. For example, we can get the default setting for grid or list mode:

$productListMode = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance()

Note: Avoiding Using Object Manager directly. We should keep our templates clean. Try to add config to the block. Should follow the @Raphael answer.

  • Thanks for the answer, it works for catalog/frontend/list_mode like in your example but is returning null for general/store_information/phone – Alex Apr 22 '16 at 9:15
  • Did you set the phone number for your store? I can get the phone number of store: \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance() ->get('Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface') ->getValue('general/store_information/phone'); – Khoa TruongDinh Apr 22 '16 at 10:02
  • Yeh I added in Stores > Configuration > General > General > Store Information. Tried a default value and for the website/store – Alex Apr 22 '16 at 10:09
  • Please try to re-index and clear cache. – Khoa TruongDinh Apr 22 '16 at 10:13
  • I've got it pulling the default phone number now but is ignoring the one set in the store/website config. Have you tried this? – Alex Apr 22 '16 at 10:29

Try this on Block, it is working for me after many search

$isEnabled = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance()
->get('Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface') ->getValue('section/group/field');
