How override a default phtml in Magento 2?

I want to update/improve the theme "magento_plushe". I add a file on app\design\frontend\magento_plushe\Magento_Theme\html\header.phtml But Magento ignore this file and load app\code\Magento\Page\view\frontend\html\header.phtml

Configuration: -Magento -Cache disabled


works in as you tried.

But: if you want to create an improved design, you should create an own theme which extends from magento_plushe.

  • I found the problem. In var/maps/fallback Magento 2 keep the default path for the header.phtml. If I clean this folder fallback, Magento regenerate new correct path for header.phtml. Clear the cache in adminhtml don't clean the maps/fallback folder...

  • Problem is, this is not really a cache. Magento will soon introduce so called deployment scripts, which do a lot of stuff. This is one of the parts the deployment scripts will cover.

The correct path to override a base template file in your case would be /app/design/frontend/PackageName/ThemeName/Magento_Theme/templates/html/header.phtml

But, be careful when overriding base template files. Only do it when you can't do it with XML/CSS. It's always better to avoid this to have an easier upgrade path when Magento 2.x is updated.
