How can I add a block to the magento 2 luma header like in this image? I'm using M2.2 and app/design/frontend/magento directory is empty (i see that referenced a lot).

enter image description here

Add below code at after top.search referenceContainer:


    <referenceContainer name="header-wrapper">
        <block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="Promo">
                <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">topPromo</argument>

Note: Need to change block id topPromo with your block Id and need some CSS for positioning.

Add this code in your default.xml file at below path


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceContainer name="header-wrapper">
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="customFile" template="Magento_Search::customFile.phtml" />

Now, create your template file at below path


<div class="block" style="float: right;margin-bottom: 0.5%;margin-top: 0.5%;">
    <?php echo __('This is Custom Text File'); ?>

Hope, It may be helpful for you.

    Why not just us a CMS Widget to place a CMS static block there. Then no code is needed – Shawn Abramson Aug 5 '18 at 6:25
  • Exactly. You are right. But, it's just a one type of solution I added. – Rohan Hapani Aug 5 '18 at 6:28
  • How do you get a cms static block to show in the header between the logo and the search? – Will Cousin Aug 5 '18 at 13:14
  • reference container header-wrapper is used for display in center. I add phtml into this container and add some css. – Rohan Hapani Aug 5 '18 at 14:00
