Hello, I have a relatively fresh install of Magento 2.1 CE and am also new to Magento 2 customization.
Installed using composer and with command line.
Everything seems to be working quite well. I have copied the Luma theme to a custom theme and applied it just fine, changed a color and logo, added a few categories and product content and that's pretty much it.
I want to modify the default Contact Us page. I have enabled it and configured the email settings, but I would like to add some additional content (like phone numbers, e-mail addresses, etc) to the top of the default Contact Us page.
Some searches have directed me to go to "Content | Blocks" and edit the 'contact-us-info' block.
Unfortunately when I go to "Content | Blocks" I am seeing "We couldn't find any records" - - There are no default blocks listed at all.
The contact us page is shown (link in footer) and works just fine on the live site.
"Content | Widgets" is also empty like "Content | Blocks".
I have tried clearing var/cache, var/di, var/generation, and var/view_preprocessed (although store is in development mode)
I have recompiled with magento setup:di:compile and run magento setup:upgrade
I flush the magento cache after every change.
Do I need to install the sample data? (I wouldn't expect so...)
What is the best way to resolve this? I am afraid of creating a contact-us-info block and overwriting the default Contact Us block.
Thank you for your time, patience, and helpful response
Solved! Go to Solution.
Exact same issue. Would love to know how to edit this block and where it exists.
Same exact problem.
"Content | Pages" ALSO shows "We couldn't find any records".......but I show them in my database and site works just fine.
After turning on "Developer Tools" in Chrome it started working...........
possibly it triggered a "hard reload".......?
Anyone find where the default Contact Block and other default footer blocks for 2.1 are located? Because they aren't in the Blocks section
I looked into this folder and found the template file that I can edit to modify the "contact-us-info" block:
First I copied this into my custom theme folder:
Made a few edits, flushed cache, and it's working.
Is this the default behaviour? Why the blocks tab shows no blocks. The cms-block table is also empty? Is their any way I can add default blocks. ?
