It seems that in magento 2 the cms_page_view layout handle has a higher priority then then the cms_index_index layout handle. (wich seems very illogical)
The scenario is that for all the cms pages I want to place the page.main.title element in a different container then standard and I use a diffrent template file for it. With the exception of the home page where I want it in yet another container.
So in Magento_Cms module I placed the following layout update in cms_page_view.xml
<referenceBlock name="page.main.title" template="html/cms-subtitle.phtml" /> <move element="page.main.title" destination="cms.page.title" after="-" />
then in the Magento_Theme module i placed the following layout update in cms_index_index.xml
<referenceBlock name="page.main.title" template="html/title.phtml" /> <move element="page.main.title" destination="content.container" before="-"/>
In the cms_index_index I can't seem to interact with the
page.main.title anymore the above code doesn't work. I also try'd to remove it but also no success. Creating a new instance of the title.phtml will result in the block giving me the meta_title instead of the content heading so that's not an option either.
Does anybody have an idea how I can move the
page.main.title to the
content.container on the homepage? Is there maybe a layout handle I don't know about that does work?
