I have added css on custom phtml file using:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php echo $block->getViewFileUrl('css/banner.css')?>">

and placed the CSS file in folder: Magento_Theme/web/css When I load page and view the page content source it shows the CSS path as:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://xyz/magento-2/pub/static/version1530249778/frontend/Magento/mytheme/en_US/css/banner.css">

But not created any file on pub/static folder. I have cleared the cache and run the upgrade command.

If your css file in Magento_Theme folder then you should follow this code:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php echo $block->getViewFileUrl('Magento_Theme::css/banner.css')?>">

I hope it will works.

  • <?php echo $block->getViewFileUrl('css/banner.css')?> why it not created on path mytheme/en_US/css/ ? Commented Jun 29, 2018 at 6:13
  • I want to create the css on path mytheme/en_US/css/ Commented Jun 29, 2018 at 6:14
  • Then you should write like this: <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php echo $block->getViewFileUrl('css/banner.css')?>"> & your css file in app/design/frontend/Vendor_Name/Theme_Name/web/css/file_name.css. folder. Commented Jun 29, 2018 at 6:19
  • After that you need to setup upgrade & deploy static content data. Commented Jun 29, 2018 at 6:21
  • M2 very complex as compare to old magento, anyway thanks Commented Jun 29, 2018 at 6:24
