I have a custom controller which I'm trying to get a block rendered.

Company/Module/Controller/Index/Index.php

<?php

namespace Company\Module\Controller\Index;

use Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action;
use Magento\Framework\Controller\ResultFactory;


class Index extends Action
{

    public function execute()
    {
        return $this->resultFactory->create(ResultFactory::TYPE_PAGE);
    }
}

Company/Module/Block/Hello.php

<?php

namespace Company\Module\Block;

use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template;
use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context;

class Hello extends Template
{

}

Company/Module/etc/frontend/routes.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:App/etc/routes.xsd">
    <router id="standard">
        <route id="testing_hello" frontName="testing">
            <module name="Company_Module"/>
        </route>
    </router>
</config>

Company/Module/view/frontend/layout/testing_index_index.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="1column" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <body>
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block name="custom.name" class="Company\Module\Block\Hello" template="testing.phtml"/>
        </referenceContainer>
    </body>
</page>

Company/Module/view/frontend/templates/testing.phtml

<h2>Hello World</h2>

For some reason I don't see <h2>Hello World</h2> I just see blank / empty content area but the rest of the page is loaded correctly.

I'll really appreciate any help on this.

For this issue

  • either you should changes layout name
  • Or Changes the route name

Explanation:

whenever a page a render that times a handler is will automatically.

That handler is {route_id}_{controllerName}_{ActioName}

And for every page, magento load a layout file automatically that is

{route_id}_{controllerName}_{ActioName}.xml

Example,Customer account creation page customer/account/create load customer_account_creata.xml because of its has a handler customer_account_creata.

As you have checked vendor/magento/module-customer/module-customer/etc/frontend/routes.xml.

And you will find route id is customer .<route id="customer" frontName="customer">.

SO, either you will changes

route id="testing_hello"

to

route id="testing"

Or change layout files name

testing_index_index.xml

to

testing_hello_index_index.xml

    Please changes template="testing.phtml" to template="Company/Module::testing.phtml" and check .but must insure that you should flush cache properly – Amit Bera Oct 17 '17 at 17:55

Try replace line in Company/Module/etc/frontend/routes.xml:

<route id="testing_hello" frontName="testing">

to:

<route id="testing" frontName="testing">

Don't forget clean cache after modifications. Your controller will be available at #your_domain#/testing/index/index
