I would like to edit the "General Subscription" text in my custom theme present in the My Account page under the Newsletter Subscription menu.

I've already located the page which is:


But I have no idea on how to create my custom module.

I've already created the registration.php and the module.php file.

but can you please explain me, what should I put in the layout folder? And also, what is the path of the templates folder? Just templates/form/newsletter.phtml?

Please, help me!



You can see the url like baseurl/newsletter/manage

so the xml file must be newsletter_manage_index.xml you can find this file from vendor/magento/module-newsletter/view/frontend/layout/newsletter_manage_index.xml

Override this file in you custom module

app/code/vendor/module/view/frontend/layout/newsletter_manage_index.xml with below code

<?xml version="1.0"?>
 * Copyright © Magento, Inc. All rights reserved.
 * See COPYING.txt for license details.
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <update handle="customer_account"/>
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="Magento\Customer\Block\Newsletter" name="customer_newsletter" cacheable="false" template="Vendor_Module::form/newsletter.phtml">
                <container name="customer.newsletter.form.before" as="form_before" label="Newsletter Subscription Form Before" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="rewards"/>

Default file's block doesn't have the template file path. It is declared in Magento\Customer\Block\Newsletter.php block file.

We have declared the custom phtml file path in xml as Vendor_Module::form/newsletter.phtml.

so copy the file from Vendor/module-customer/view/frontend/templates/form/newsletter.phtml to app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/templates/form/newsletter.phtml

First you have to Override your Existing File so basically you need to follow such simple steps:

  1. Create Module OSCP_NewsletterOveride - Path: app/code/OSCP/NewsletterOveride
  2. Create module.xml file in path app/code/OSCP/NewsletterOveride/etc/module.xml

and paste this code

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="OSCP_NewsletterOveride" setup_version="1.0.0">
  1. Create etc/registration.php file -path: app/code/OSCP/NewsletterOveride/registration.php

and paste this code

  1. Now Enable the Module with command:php bin/magento module:enable OSCP_NewsletterOveride

  2. This way you can create your Module.

Now Override Newsletter File

Create File URL/newsletter/edit/

Now Create newsletter_edit_index.xml in Path: app/code/OSCP/NewsletterOveride/view/frontend/layout/newsletter_edit_index.xml

and Add following code:

<?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">
    <update handle="customer_account"/>
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="Magento\Customer\Block\Newsletter" name="customer_newsletter_form" template="OSCP_NewsletterOverride::form/newsletter.phtml">
                <container name="customer.newsletter.form" as="form_override" label="Newsletter Subscription" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="newsletter_form"/>

Now copy your original newsletter file in following Path: app/code/OSCP/NewsletterOveride/view/frontend/templates/form/newsletter.phtml

Hope this will help you!!

  • Thank you. It worked, but with your xml file, it didn't override the previous one, but just added extra code to it. In order to make it work, I had to replace the form_override with form_before as @Ranganathan suggested :) – Gerardo Siano Sep 27 '19 at 22:41
