I am trying to add a custom link in customer account navigation. My custom link is showing in account navigation and working too, but it's not showing as active/current on click.

enter image description here

Below is the code I have:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="customer_account_navigation">
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Link\Current" name="customer-account-navigation-suppport-ticket-link" after="-">
                    <argument name="path" xsi:type="string">support/customer/index</argument>
                    <argument name="label" xsi:type="string">Support Ticket</argument>


namespace Namespace\Support\Controller\Customer;

use Magento\Framework\App\Action;
use Magento\Framework\Exception\NotFoundException;
use Magento\Framework\Controller\ResultFactory;

class Index extends \Namespace\Support\Controller\Index
     * Show customer tickets
     * @return \Magento\Framework\View\Result\Page
     * @throws NotFoundException
    public function execute()
        /** @var \Magento\Framework\View\Result\Page resultPage */
        $resultPage = $this->resultFactory->create(ResultFactory::TYPE_PAGE);
        return $resultPage;


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <update handle="customer_account"/>
        <title>Support Ticket</title>
        <css src="Namespace_Support::css/styles.css"/>
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="Namespace\Support\Block\TicketList" name="ticketViewList" template="Namespace_Support::list.phtml" />

To get the things done, please change the path in your layout file like below.

<argument name="path" xsi:type="string">support/customer</argument>

Please note, i have removed action part from the path string.

For more information, why you need to do this please study below file.


Hope, this will help you.

  • if you have other action other than "index". you should use full path like "support/customer/abc". Also make sure your frontname and route id are same. Commented Nov 10, 2016 at 13:08
  • @YagneshPonkiya, I am facing same issue at the moment and I have put question here I have tried with the above code but I am getting 404 page issue. Commented May 5, 2017 at 12:43
  • @Yagnesh if I am on customer/account/ page then the menu has the class "current". However if I am on customer/account/edit page the "current" class is not present. Can you help? I want to have "current" class on the menu for internal pages as well.

  • @YagneshPonkiya What about cms page? Commented Sep 4, 2017 at 9:59

You can write in your custom layout

<referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-suppport-ticket-link">
                    <argument name="current" xsi:type="boolean">true</argument>
