I have a custom module and on that I have a template file. I want to show that template in a particular category instead of it displaying in all the category pages.

How can I achieve that?

Anyone please suggest me to achieve this result?

  • You can use static block and call your custom template in this block after this static block select in particular category. Feb 8, 2020 at 5:59
  • @PayalPatel, Could you please explain a little bit? As I have created a module and now the template file is displaying in all the categories

For that, you just need to create one static block and call you .phtml file like the below example.

{{block class="\Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" template="Vendor_Module::product/category_customdata.phtml"}}

Then you just need to call these blocks in a specific category. Check below image for your reference.

That's it.

I hope it helps you.

  • Before I try your solution, I have to remove the template in all category page so I have removed layout from the module but still I can see the template file in category pages. How can I remove that template file in all category pages?

  • It's not related to this question. But, for that, I think you need to remove it manually.

You can try to load block with template with

catalog_category_view_id_[Cat Id].xml

Reference with similar question:


  1. Create CMS block
{{block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template" name="formblock" template="Vendor_Module::myfiles/myfile.phtml"}}
  1. In your category, set that CMS block.
