my 1column.xml file

<referenceContainer name="page.wrapper">
        <container name="header.container" as="header_container" label="Page Header Container"  htmlTag="header" htmlClass="page-header slide" before="main.content"/>
        <container name="page.top" as="page_top" label="After Page Header" after="header.container"/>
        <container name="footer-container" as="footer" before="before.body.end" label="Page Footer Container" htmlTag="footer" htmlClass="page-footer" />

here i want insert my custom html inside header.container

so all i did was inside my frontend/{mypachage}/{theme}/Magento_Theme/templates/html/custom-header.phtml now i want to inject header.phtml inside header tag so inside my theme/Magento_Theme/layout/default.xml i edited and added line

<referenceContainer name="header_container"> 
  <block  type="page/html" name="asd" template="html/header.phtml" />

But nothing happens

  • Did you try with <referenceContainer name="header.container"> ? – Raphael at Digital Pianism Apr 29 '16 at 8:18

    oh yes i tried both with name and as of original container and do i have to create class to use templates? – ujwal dhakal Apr 29 '16 at 8:20

you have to try with below code, in magento 2 block with type attribute are removed you have to use with class attribute.

<referenceContainer name="header_container"> 
     <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="custom.header" template="Magento_Theme::html/custom-header.phtml">

Clear cache and check again.

  • yes this works but what does class do? – ujwal dhakal Apr 29 '16 at 8:48
  • class takes full path of your block class. you can check above class path from vendor/magento/framework/View/Element/Template.php – Rakesh Jesadiya Apr 29 '16 at 8:59
  • but my file path was inside my own dir – ujwal dhakal Apr 29 '16 at 9:13
  • you have to just give path like this , Vendor/Module/Block/Custom – Rakesh Jesadiya Apr 29 '16 at 9:15
  • your class doesnot work but class="Magento\Theme\Block\Html\Header" works – ujwal dhakal Apr 29 '16 at 9:28
