How to override the toolbar.phtml What should be my layout file contents??

I heard we have to place our custom template in app/design/frontend/myvendor/mytheme..?

I mean why do we have to keep our templates in theme folder? is that necessary? If so how ?

  • If i include, product/list/toolbar.phtml file in my template folder, my "catalogsearch/result/?q=keyword" url navigates to catalog's toolbar page !

Try this way :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="product_list_toolbar">
          <action method="setTemplate">
            <argument name="template" xsi:type="string">Vendor_Module::product/list/toolbar.phtml</argument>

I was just add page tag and body tag in your catalogsearch_result_index.xml file.

  • have tried tat buddy..no use :(
