I have been reading the forum but I can't find any solution to solve my case.

I have a custom module where I'm getting the error:

1 exception(s): Exception #0 (Magento\Framework\Exception\ValidatorException): Invalid template file: 'simulator.phtml' in module: '<module_name>' block's name: 'product.view.simulator'

My module works with Magento 2.2 but after upgrade to 2.3, it does not work. I use Mac & docker(Image:Alex Cheung/magento2:latest), no windows. I think the problem is in the symlink which is not getting the right path.

File: catalog_product_view.xml (I have tried with the template set to <module_name>: simulator.phtml but it doesn't work) I hace tried changing the module location:

vendor//magento-2x/.. or app/code/...

but it now works

<?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">
   <body>
       <referenceBlock name="product.info.addtocart">
          <block class="<vendor>\<module_name>\Block\Product\Simulator"
           name="product.view.simulator"
           as="product_simulator"
           template="simulator.phtml"/>
       </referenceBlock>
    </body>
</page>

Some ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Solution: The problem was solved enabling symlinks to the template(Advance->Developer in Magento admin panel), but I have read that it's dangerous :S

  • Are you sure you created the simulator.phtml in the right directory? I think you should post your full module directory/file tree Mar 1, 2019 at 12:59
  • Path is right, it reachs at the right destination

I think you need to update the template attribute to correct one with full module path like below

template="Magento_Catalog::product/view/simulator.phtml"

Hope this will help you.

Thanks

  • Magento_Catalog is just a place holder you need to use your module name like DigitalOrigin_Pmt::simulator.phtml

Template Path Given Like This

<?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">
   <body>
       <referenceBlock name="product.info.addtocart">
          <block class="DigitalOrigin\Pmt\Block\Product\Simulator"
           name="product.view.simulator"
           as="product_simulator"
           template="Vendor_ModuleName::simulator.phtml"/>
       </referenceBlock>

  • template="DigitalOrigin_Pmt::simulator.phtml" just change it Mar 1, 2019 at 13:17
  • Using template="DigitalOrigin_Pmt::simulator.phtml" still fails. It's not the solution

Magento can not locate your template because you have the wrong path in your layout xml file.

template="Vendor_ModuleName::simulator.phtml"/>

If the path to your actual template file is: DigitalOrigin/Pmt/view/frontend/templates/product/simulator.phtml

then it should be like this:

<?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">
   <body>
       <referenceBlock name="product.info.addtocart">
          <block class="DigitalOrigin\Pmt\Block\Product\Simulator"
           name="product.view.simulator"
           as="product_simulator"
           template="Vendor_ModuleName::product/simulator.phtml"/>
       </referenceBlock>
    </body>
</page>

And please do change {Vendor_ModuleName} to your actual package name. Its just a placeholder above in the code snippet
