I have created a basic module that extends the contact form, the issue is that when I try to view the form I get a 404, no errors just 404.

What I want to achieve is a trade account form which looks like a register form but it's really the contact form just with more fields.

I have created my module within the /app/code folder and called it Contact2020/Trade with the following inside:

Block Folder has the file ContactForm.php with the following:

<?php
/**
 * Copyright © Magento, Inc. All rights reserved.
 * See COPYING.txt for license details.
 */
namespace Contact2020\Trade\Block;

use Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template;

/**
 * Main contact form block
 *
 * @api
 * @since 100.0.2
 */
class ContactForm extends Template
{
    /**
     * @param Template\Context $context
     * @param array $data
     */
    public function __construct(Template\Context $context, array $data = [])
    {
        parent::__construct($context, $data);
        $this->_isScopePrivate = true;
    }

    /**
     * Returns action url for contact form
     *
     * @return string
     */
    public function getFormAction()
    {
        return $this->getUrl('trade/index/register', ['_secure' => true]);
    }
}

Then I have the Controller/Index folder with Register.php file with the following:

<?php
/**
 *
 * Copyright © Magento, Inc. All rights reserved.
 * See COPYING.txt for license details.
 */
namespace Contact2020\Trade\Controller\Index;

use Magento\Framework\App\Action\HttpGetActionInterface as HttpGetActionInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Controller\ResultFactory;

class Register extends \Magento\Contact\Controller\Index implements HttpGetActionInterface
{
    /**
     * Show Contact Us page
     *
     * @return \Magento\Framework\Controller\ResultInterface
     */
    public function execute()
    {
        return $this->resultFactory->create(ResultFactory::TYPE_PAGE);
    }
}

I then have etc/frontend with routes.xml with the following:

<!--
/**
 * Copyright © Magento, Inc. All rights reserved.
 * See COPYING.txt for license details.
 */
-->
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:App/etc/routes.xsd">
    <router id="standard">
        <route id="trade" frontName="trade">
            <module name="Contact2020_Trade" />
        </route>
    </router>
</config>

I have got view/frontend/layout with trade_index_register.xml which has the following:

<?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" layout="1column" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <head>
        <title>Trade Account</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="Contact2020\Trade\Block\ContactForm" name="contactForm" template="Contact2020_Trade::form.phtml">
                <container name="form.additional.info" label="Form Additional Info"/>
            </block>
        </referenceContainer>
    </body>
</page>

And lastly I have /view/frontend/templates with form.phtml which just has my html form:

<form class="form tradeform"
      action="<?= $block->escapeUrl($block->getFormAction()) ?>"
      id="trade-form"
      method="post"
      data-hasrequired="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('* Required Fields')) ?>"
      data-mage-init='{"validation":{}}'>

</form>

If I navigate to http://localhost:8888/store/trade/index/register I get a 404, but If I navigate to http://localhost:8888/store/contact/index/index I can see the default contact form. I have run these commands in my console:

  • php -d memory_limit=2048M bin/magento setup:upgrade php -d

  • memory_limit=2048M bin/magento setup:di:compile php -d

  • memory_limit=2048M bin/magento cache:flush

Is there something I'm missing?

I understand, your real bottleneck is to render the form as a landing page.

I have taken your files and updated them only slightly. I would like to give you the module that works at my end; this way, you would be able to install it and have it running on your local.. --> If you want this, I will give you a chat url for us to exchange this plugin as I have some issues with bitbucket and cannot push my module at the moment.

Once your have the module, you may uninstall your (temporarily) and install mine. then once setup:upgrade is run, you may go to

<magento_url>/trade and you will see your form

Also, if you submit the form, it will call the second url <magento_url>/trade/index/register

It may not be exactly where you wanted to go but I hope this module will give you a controller working. Then, you may see what was breaking yours and eventually you will be able to use your module again.

Do let me know when I can put the file on a chat place.
