I want to create a url like `localhost/magento/{frontname}/profile/id/5'

so, i have created a controller file profile.php

namespace Learning\HelloPage\Controller;
use Magento\Framework\Controller\ResultFactory;
class Profile extends \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action

    public function __construct(
       \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context $context)

     * View  page action
     * @return \Magento\Framework\Controller\ResultInterface

    public function execute()
       $seller_id = $this->getRequest()->getParam('id');

       $resultPage = $this->resultFactory->create(ResultFactory::TYPE_PAGE);

       return $resultPage;

In order to create URL like localhost/magento/{frontname}/profile/id/5, you need to define the route front name in app/code/Learning/HelloPage/etc/frontend/routes.xml file.

Below is the syntax:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:App/etc/routes.xsd">
    <router id="standard">
        <route id="viewfile" frontName="viewfile">
            <module name="Learning_HelloPage" />

Where you can define the front name under frontName parameter.

Note: I assume that you have already created module's basic skeleton, i.e.

  • app/code/Learning/HelloPage/etc/module.xml
  • app/code/Learning/HelloPage/registration.php
  • hi i have created the routes.xml file also but tell me how can i run this localhost/magento/viewfile/profile/id/5 url
