I have cobbled together a module for Magento 2 that is eventually going to insert a block in to the product page that pulls in other products with a similar attribute (in this case, "range").

When the module is enabled, I see it in the setup_modules table in the database, and see the CSS I've inserted in to the page from the module, however product pages return a 404 error.

If I remove the block call from the catalog_product_view.xml file that references the template, the page loads.

    <module name="Company_RangeCollection" setup_version="2.0.1" schema_version="0.0.1" active="true" />


namespace Company\RangeCollection\Block;

class RangeCollection extends \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\AbstractProduct {

    protected $_collection;
    protected $_config;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\Context $context,
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\Resource\Product\Collection $collection,
        \Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface $scopeConfig,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->_collection = $collection;
        $this->_config = $scopeConfig->getValue('range_collection/settings');
        parent::__construct($context, $data);

    public function getProducts($currentRegion) {
        $limit = $this->getProductLimit();
        $collection = $this->_collection;
            //->addAttributeToFilter('region', 1);
        return $collection;

    public function getConfig() {
        return $this->_config;

    public function getProductLimit() {
        return $this->_config["limit"];

  • Have you defined registration.php file in module root Jul 28, 2016 at 9:17
  • I have, yes: <?php \Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::register(\Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::MODULE, 'Company_RangeCollection', DIR ); Excuse the rubbish formatting! Jul 28, 2016 at 9:18
  • Have to defined routes.xml

Define di.xml file at app/code/Company/RangeCollection/etc/di.xml

add below code to it:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
 * Copyright © 2015 Magento. All rights reserved.
 * See COPYING.txt for license details.
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
<preference for="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\AbstractProduct" type="Company\RangeCollection\Block\RangeCollection" /> 



Change below line in file app/code/Company/RangeCollection/Block/RangeCollection.php :

\Magento\Catalog\Model\Resource\Product\Collection $collection,


\Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\Collection $collection,
  • Added this but still not working. I've just tried bin/magento setup:di:compile and now I'm getting: Class Magento\Catalog\Model\Resource\Product\Collection does not exist Jul 28, 2016 at 9:35
  • Updated answer check it Jul 28, 2016 at 9:43
  • It was my own mistake, I'd written Resource as opposed to ResourceModel. Compiled and now I'm seeing the block output on the page. Jul 28, 2016 at 9:48
