Since I have upgraded my website to Magento 2.2.0 (from 2.1.9), the store view switch stopped working on all the pages save for the homepage and the contact page.

I have 2 store views for 2 languages, and whenever I am on a page and I try to switch to the other language version of that page, I get a 404.

How to make this switcher work again?

  • The problem also persists when I disable my theme and use Luma, so the problem is not related to my theme. – Kawa Oct 31 '17 at 11:40

As @mkotov writes.. the issue is tracked and solved.

For now, if you want, you could go in

magento2/app/code/Magento/Store/Model/Store.php (Magento installation by Github)


vendor/magento/module-store/Model/Store.php (Magento installation by composer)

and replace the second row in

public function getCurrentUrl($fromStore = true)

$requestString = $this->_url->escape(ltrim($this->_request->getRequestString(), '/'));


$requestString = $this->_url->escape(
        ltrim($this->_request->getRequestString(), '/')

Issue is tracked internally under MAGETWO-80517 and will likely be included in 2.2.2 release. The root cause is that the ?___store=(store code) param is duplicated in the url when switching storeviews. You can remove the extra param manually to work-around the issue.

  • Can you please indicate how to remove it manually? – Kawa Nov 1 '17 at 19:36
  • You should see it in the url. Manually remove it from the url in the browser. – mkotov Nov 3 '17 at 3:07
  • Nope there isn't such parameter appearing in the URL. The URL is normally rewritten into what I've defined, it just leads to a 404 when I switch to the other language. – Kawa Nov 6 '17 at 12:58
