  • You need to set Default Store view instead of Main website in your current scope. – Rakesh Jesadiya Nov 2 '17 at 9:06

    m2.3 use storurl/?templatehints=magento – matinict Mar 27 at 7:47

If you are using Magento 2.2 then on production mode, the template hint will not work.

Also, you need to check the setting at last level of scope mean store view scope.


You need to set scope Default store view or your current store view. You have set Main Website in Current configuration scope.

enter image description here

After set Current configuration as YOur Default store view and check Yes for storepath hints for front and Blockpath hints as Yes.


Curiously. Now it works. Added a new block on the site and once again cleared the cache.


For future googlers - I had this same problem on a site that had the core Magento data migrated over from an M1 store I had no control over. The problem turned out to be an IP address in the developer client restrictions input. This overrides template hints.

As @matinict mentioned in his comment, in Magento 2.3 you need to append ?templatehints=<Parameter Value> in your URL.

So your url will be look like as following:


and for any particular page URL will be like that
