I want to edit default Magento 2 New Products Grid widget content:

The file located here:


But when I'm done with editing its going removed on every update.

So how can I edit on my own temlpate?


copy these files ( or what ever template you want to change ) to your theme directory and change it. the file location would be :


Remember :

you can override any template by copying that file to your theme package. However, you need to take care some naming convention and path of files i.e

1 - if there is vendor module naming "module-catalog" it will become Magento_Catalog in your theme folder and if there is module in vendor "module-grouped-product" it will become Magento_GroupedProduct ( - will be removed and first letter will be become upper case )

2 - All your templates will be placed in templates folder and layout folders like ( Magento_Catalog/tempates , Magento_Catalog/layout ) there will not be any view and frontend folders.

  • I have done it and changed the code to {{widget type="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\Widget\NewWidget" display_type="all_products" show_pager="0" products_count="4" template="Xx/xx/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/widget/new/content/new_grid.phtml"}} but it's not working. – Efex Apr 10 '18 at 15:11
  • it will not work like that, you also need to compile and deploy static content again – Naveed Asim Apr 10 '18 at 15:18
  • Also, you would need to make some changes in widget.xml to to effect your changes, did you check this post ? magento.stackexchange.com/questions/162950/… – Naveed Asim Apr 10 '18 at 15:19
