Magento version: 2.0.0

How to check the current page is home page in the template file? There has a global function to do it?



$currentUrl = $this->getUrl('', ['_current' => true]);
$urlRewrite = $this->getUrl('*/*/*', ['_current' => true, '_use_rewrite' => true]);
$isHome = $currentUrl == $urlRewrite;

In addition you can use the \Magento\Theme\Block\Html\Header\Logo::isHomePage() method if you has this block in all pages.


Set block content with custom function :

protected $_request;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Framework\App\Request\Http $request,
) {
    $this->_request = $request;

public function isHomepage()

    if ($this->_request->getFullActionName() == 'cms_index_index') {
        return true;
    return false;

Template code :

<?php  $isHome = $block->isHomepage(); ?>
  • You can also use "$this->getRequest()->getFullActionName()" in blocks using class "Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" – 00-BBB Aug 1 at 13:57

You can also check

$objectManagerCms = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$cmsPage = $objectManagerCms->get('\Magento\Cms\Model\Page');

echo $cmsPage->getIdentifier(); //Current CMS Page Identifier
  • It's bad practice to use Object Manager. Especially when the needed information can be found in Magento\Framework\App\Request\Http as mentioned by @ronak-chauhan. – Daan van den Bergh May 23 '18 at 12:01
