1 exception(s): Exception #0 (Magento\Framework\Exception\RuntimeException): Type Error occurred when creating object: Parcode\Contacts\Controller\Index\index\Interceptor

this my code


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:App/etc/routes.xsd">
    <router id="standard">
        <route id="contacts" frontName="contacts">
            <module name="Parcode_Contacts" />

my Controller: Index

namespace Parcode\Contacts\Controller\Index;

class Index extends \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action
    protected $_pageFactory;
    protected $_postFactory;
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context $context,
        \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory $pageFactory
        $this->_pageFactory = $pageFactory;
        return parent::__construct($context);
    public function execute()

        // die('somthing'); works correctly
        return $this->_pageFactory->create();

            <block class="Parcode\Contacts\Block\Contact" name="contacts_index_index" template="Parcode_Contacts::index_index.phtml"  />

template: view/templates/index_index.phtml

  • Would you include the other two files you referenced? Also, do you have a plugin somewhere? As a side note the template should be in your module's view/frontend/templates/ and the layout: view/frontend/layout/. – bassplayer7 Jan 8 '19 at 23:09
  • can you share you layout coding? – Sourav Jan 8 '19 at 23:56

I have checked you are using wrong template path. Always use templates not template.

In magento 2 module templates are store in Path: view/frontend/templates/
