I faced problem with overriding a phtml file in Magento 2.

I want this:-

(1) Core Module of phtml Override By Custom Module called - A

(2) Same phtml file of Module - A Override By Some Custom Module - B

Example:- Magento_Sales::order/view/info.phtml

This file override by Module-A And I want override Module - A info.phtml in my custom Module-B

Issue:- So that the issue will arise that Module - B cannot override that phtml file.

  • can you please share with me your phtml file path and where you want to override ? Commented Apr 30, 2018 at 5:32

Make sure you have mentioned proper module sequence that is very important for overriding. You may check your module sequence is correct or not to view app/etc/config.php in this file all the modules listed enable/disable with sequence which one is going to load first. if your module B loading before A then phtml will not be override. For more details please refer Magento guide.

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
<module name="Vendor_ComponentB" setup_version="0.0.1">
    <!-- Vendor_ComponentB is dependent on Vendor_ComponentA: -->
        <module name="Vendor_ComponentA" />

  • you are right but this not a solution of my issue because this is merged layout, but this will not override phtml. I had already tried this.

This is an example of how to override the core .phtml file. You can refer to the below link for more information. https://webkul.com/blog/override-phtml-file-magento2/

To call your phtml file at the place of core(Magento's) file, you need to follow:

Firstly, create an xml file with the controller name, on which page you want to override.

For example: here we override checkout/cart/index controller page file.

create checkout_cart_index.xml inside :

app/code/Webkul/Hello/view/frontend/layout folder

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance dc" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
<referenceBlock name="checkout.cart">
    <action method="setTemplate">
        <argument name="template" xsi:type="string">Webkul_Hello::cart.phtml</argument>


checkout.cart : is block name, whose template file you want to override.

Webkul_Hello::cart.phtml : is a template file of your module.

Now, create cart.phtml file at location:

app/code/Webkul/Hello/view/frontend/templates folder

//write your stuff here
<h1>Shopping Cart</h1>
