  • just want to clarify if BSS here your package and ContactUs is theme? – Shireen N Feb 5 '18 at 9:08
  • it's company and theme, yes but does it matter? – user63384 Feb 5 '18 at 9:09
  • Are all the other customization in this theme working?Is your theme being correctly configured to use in frontend? – Shireen N Feb 5 '18 at 9:13
  • yes it's, if i change the theme in vendor it's working, but somehow can't override it in app/design – user63384 Feb 5 '18 at 9:19
  • Did you applied your theme to be used as a theme from Content > design configuration in your Magento from your Magento admin? if yes then try to refresh your cache & then see the changes – Abhishek Tripathi Feb 10 '18 at 5:04

For override list.phtml via custom module

Create view/frontend/layout/catalog_category_view.xml and put this code.

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="category.products.list">
            <action method="setTemplate">
                <argument name="template" xsi:type="string">Magetest_Test::product/list.phtml</argument>

Next create new file view/frontend/templates/product/list.phtml set your code.

    This is not required when overriding is done through theme, this is useful when you are overriding in the custom module. – Shireen N Feb 5 '18 at 9:12

create block file and the file should extend ListProduct.

namespace Frontname\Modulename\Block\Crosssell;

class Autocrosssell extends \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ListProduct
  //your functions


Create view/frontend/layout/checkout_cart_index.xml and put this code.

<?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">
        <css src="Magento_Swatches::css/swatches.css"/>
        <referenceContainer name="checkout.cart.items">
            <block class="Frontname\Modulename\Block\Crosssell\Autocrosssell" name="custom.products.list" as="product_list" template="Frontname_Modulename::checkout/cart/list.phtml">
              <!--   <container name="category.product.list.additional" as="additional" /> -->
                <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\RendererList" name="category.product.type.details.renderers" as="details.renderers">
                    <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" as="default"/>
                <referenceBlock name="category.product.type.details.renderers">
                           <block class="Magento\Swatches\Block\Product\Renderer\Listing\Configurable" as="configurable" template="Magento_Swatches::product/listing/renderer.phtml" />
