like it says on the title, I want to 'customize' in a manner of speaking the reorder function that appears on the 'My Orders' section in the Customer Dashboard. What I have to do is to remove that link from that page and create a new 'sub menu' in the Dashboard (which I already have done) and list there only the last order and that's the one that will have the reorder function (this is a client's requirement). Is there any way to easily remove the 'reorder' link without tampering with Magento's core? I thought of creating a "preference" in the di.xml and do my own phtml without the link, but I think that there has to be a way to do it cleaner and more efficient, if so can anyone point me in the right direction? Also to only list the last order in the new section I created I thought of the same thing but I think that it wouldn't be efficient. Thanks in advance.

To disable reorder option you can do it by administrative panel:

  1. STORES -> Settings -> Configuration
  2. Click on Sales under Sale in left panel
  3. Go to Reorder section and set No in Allow Reorder

If you want you can also do it by code copying the file from:




Then remove or customize conditional canReorder():

<?php if ($this->helper('Magento\Sales\Helper\Reorder')->canReorder($_order->getEntityId())) : ?>
<?php endif ?>
  • Thanks, this helped me a little along the way, but what I needed was to show only the "reorder" action for the last order, at first I was told to do it on a separate section, but in the end we agreed to do it on the "My orders" section. Jul 25, 2018 at 13:12
