@tressie.damore In Magento 2, you can override a helper class by creating a new helper class in your custom module and extending the original helper class. Here is an example:


Create a new helper class in your custom module at the following path: `app/code/[Vendor]/[Module]/Helper/Data.php

To override a helper class in Magento 2, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Create a new module or locate the existing module where you want to override the helper class.
  2. Create a new file with the same class name as the helper you want to override. For example, if you want to override the helper class "VendorModuleNameHelperData", create a file named "Data.php" in the "Helper" directory of your module.
  3. In the new file, define the class and extend the original helper class. For example:
1
2
3
4
5
6
namespace VendorModuleNameHelper;

class Data extends OriginalNamespaceHelperData
{
    // Override the methods you want to modify
}


  1. Make sure to update the namespace and class name declarations according to your module's structure and the original helper's structure.
  2. Modify the methods in your new class to achieve the desired functionality. You can override any public method of the original helper class.
  3. Clear the cache by running the following command in the Magento root directory:
1
php bin/magento cache:clean


That's it! Your new helper class should now override the original helper class in Magento 2.
