CSS not loading in custom theme after migration

CSS not loading in custom theme after migration

I have a magento 1.9 installation up and running and Im moving it to magento 2.1.5. I developed a custom theme in Magento and is working properly. But when I migrated 1.9 database to 2.1.5 and connect it to the magento 2 theme, the css are not loading. I have selected my custom theme in admin section and when I deploy static content, the css are generating in pub/static folder as expected.


This is my default_head_blocks.xml of my custom theme in app/design/frontend/PackageName/ThemeName/Magento_Theme/layout/default_head_blocks.xml


<page xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
       <!--  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/> -->
        <css src="common.css"/>
        <css src="css/source/custom/font-awesome.css"/>
        <script src="requirejs/require.js"/>
        <referenceContainer name="after.body.start">
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Js\Components" name="head.components" as="components" template="Magento_Theme::js/components.phtml" before="-"/>

I have deleted contents in var folder as well as pub/static folder ant done static content deploy, reindexing etc still it is not showing in frontend.


How can I include my css files in my theme?



Re: CSS not loading in custom theme after migration



My first question is - does it show any CUSTOM CSS after migration? If not then you might wanna check the system locale as well. 

Secondly, check the file path as well.

Re: CSS not loading in custom theme after migration

I developed a custom magento 2 theme in a vanilla magento 2 installation. It is working fine in that. But when the migrated DB is connected to that code base instead of vanilla magento 2 db, the css disappears. The files are present in theme folders as LESS files which gets converted when i deploy static content.
