Having a issue with figuring out how to get this working.

file path for custom template:


In my CMS page, I have it written as:

{{block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" template="VENDOR_THEME::custom/custom.phtml"}}

What am I doing wrong here? Please help

You need to define your phtml file with block in layout.xml file and then call it same way.

Like below example of layout.xml

<?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">
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="test" template="Vendor_Test::test.phtml"></block>

Then in your cms page :

{{block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" template="Vendor_Test::test.phtml"}}
