How to Add Custom Header in Magento 2

As you may know, header is the key element of a website as it is the first thing that people will see when they land on your site. Basically, it contains links to important pages on your site that potential customers will often want to visit before making a purchase or enquiry. It sets the tone for the whole site. You need to include adequate information in the header to encourage your customers to explore your site further.

In this blog today, we presented the way to Add Custom Header in Magento 2.

Step 1: Create an XML file on the following path –>


<referenceContainer name="header.container">
<block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="custom_header" as="custom_header" template="Magento_Theme::html/customheader.phtml" before="-"/>
<move element="logo" as="logo" destination="custom_header"/>
<move element="" as="topsearch" destination="custom_header"/>
<move element="minicart" as="minicart" destination="custom_header"/>
