Magento 2 "Unable to get content for" error

Magento 2 "Unable to get content for" error

Hello, @bee tv @film plus

 

I have a Magento 2 in development. I have installed a module/extension for shipping. However after installing it, I get errors on the front page in my browser developer tools.

 

In the var/log exception log it gives me the error "main.CRITICAL: Unable to get content for 'frontend/Vendor/Theme/en_US/Vendor_Module/js/shippingmodule.js"

 

 

Does anyone know what this error means? Unable to get content for? I am not sure where to look to solve the issue.

Hello @snowfightec042 

 

It's a shippingmodule.js file issue. So please create shippingmodule.js file in this path app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/web/js/ and then run the following commands:

  • php bin/magento s:up
  • php bin/magento s:d:c
  • php bin/magento s:s:d -f
  • php bin/magento c:f

 

If you find our reply helpful, please give us kudos.

Hello snowfightec042,

I am just want to tell you that 

The error message you're encountering, "Unable to get content for," typically indicates that Magento 2 is unable to retrieve a specific file or resource. In this case, it seems to be related to the JavaScript file "shippingmodule.js" from the "Vendor_Module" module/theme.

To resolve this issue, you can follow these steps:

  1. Check File Existence: Verify that the file "shippingmodule.js" exists in the expected location: app/design/frontend/Vendor/Theme/Vendor_Module/web/js/shippingmodule.js. Make sure the file path and filename are correct.

  2. File Permissions: Ensure that the file and its parent directories have the appropriate file permissions so that Magento can access them. Generally, the files should have read permissions for the web server user (e.g., Apache or Nginx).

  3. Static Content Deployment: If you've recently installed or updated the module, it's essential to run the static content deployment command. From your Magento root directory, run the following command:

    php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
    This command will regenerate the static files, including JavaScript, CSS, and other assets, for the module.
  4. Cache Clearing: Clear the Magento cache to ensure that the updated static content is loaded. You can do this by running the following command:

    php bin/magento cache:clean

    Additionally, you can try flushing the cache storage by running:

    php bin/magento cache:flush
  5. Theme Compilation: If you're using Magento's static view files signing feature, you might need to recompile your theme. Run the following command:

    php bin/magento setup:upgrade
    php bin/magento setup:di:compile
    php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

    This will recompile the necessary files and ensure the proper generation of static files.

After following these steps, refresh your front-end page and check if the error still persists. If the issue remains, consider investigating further by examining the file path, verifying module configuration, and reviewing any relevant logs or error messages.

Note: It's always recommended to take a backup of your files and database before making any changes to your Magento installation.
