When running the php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy command I am having an issue with the frontend of the site where it looks like it is loading the Magento/luma theme and ignoring all of my theme files.

Also, I have tried the --exclude-theme on the command to ignore the Magento/luma theme but no luck.

Here is how the website is looking when I run the command:

  • I have found a fix, Make sure the theme id is correct on the core_config_data table and widget_instance table in the database.

Another important thing is check your current theme from database in themes table. Your theme type should be physical.

  • Thanks, this helped a lot. There was an issue with the theme id parsed in the config and widgets table.

  • Yes it take 1 full day to find this issue source when I encountered first. Feb 24, 2021 at 6:08

When you execute this command you must add the languages ​​of your store and -f, for example my store uses Spanish from Spain so:

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy es_ES en_US -f

php bin/magento cache:flush

I hope it helps
