I am using varnish cache and also I've added AMP pages for mobile view. Now the thing is varnish is not detecting mobile and tab so I want to disable varnish for the homepage.

Everything was working fine when I added cacheable="false" in default.xml in theme folder but it will make whole website cacheable="false". I just want to disable for the homepage.


1 Answer 1


Try this,

Method 1:

Add the below code to homepage cms under

<referenceContainer name="content">
   <block cacheable="false"/>

content -> pages -> select homepage -> under design tab -> Layout update xml

Method 2 :

If you want it via xml in the sense add the below code into

<?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">
    <referenceContainer name="content">
        <block cacheable="false"/>

cms_index_index.xml under layout folder.

NOTE : Disabling cache would certainly lower your site performance.

Hope this helps.

  • I applied method 1 and it worked. Will it disable cache for only home page? Apr 29, 2019 at 8:27
  • Yes, to whichever page u placed that code will be effective only on those pages Apr 29, 2019 at 8:30
