i'm using magento 2.1.6.

I'm using the theme everything and I want to extend one of their child themes into a new child theme. I am using these files and this structure:




Magento_Theme > layout > default.xml

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="logo">
                <argument name="logo_file" xsi:type="string">images/logo.svg</argument>
                <argument name="logo_img_width" xsi:type="number">200</argument>
                <argument name="logo_img_height" xsi:type="number">200</argument>

media > preview.jpg

web > css > source > variables > _body.less

web > images > logo.svg

web > js

files in themechild: registration.php

\Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::THEME, 'frontend/MyCompany/newstylechild', __DIR__


<theme xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Config/etc/theme.xsd">
<title>NewStyle Child</title>


After changes, i run this commands:

rm -rf var/di/* var/generation/* var/cache/* var/log/* var/page_cache/* var/session/* var/view_preprocessed/* pub/static/*

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

php bin/magento setup:db-schema:upgrade

php bin/magento setup:di:compile

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

php bin/magento indexer:reindex php

bin/magento cache:clean

php bin/magento cache:flush

After this, i apply in CONTENT > design (configuration), like this image: enter image description here

But in the frontend, just appears this: enter image description here

I think some configuration is missing, as it does not load some tabs in STORES> configuration (design) (image here) enter image description here

what can I do? thanks in advance.

check in theme.xml whether you have specified parent theme correctly

path: app/design/frontend/mytheme/theme/theme.xml

<title>New theme</title>



  • yes, i have. Because the deploy cant run without a correctly path .... Aug 5, 2017 at 4:29
