I have 2 stores on my Magento 2 website. one for Srilanka & the other for Australia. I am redirecting my customers based on customer's IPs to relevant sores. Whenever I am redirecting the customer to an Australian store, I am getting the URL like below


After going through the product page and category pages URL is appearing without /?___from_store=default

I tried 302 redirects using htaccess file like below. But no luck.

Redirect 301 /aus/?___from_store=default https://staging.mywebsite.lk/aus/

This is happening only on the home page. How can I remove this from my url? please help to short this out.

Turn off store code urls in admin admin > stores > configuration > General > Web > Add Store Code to Urls > No run upgrade, static-content-deply and cache clean/flush commands

This comes from \Magento\Store\Model\Store::getCurrentUrl:

public function getCurrentUrl($fromStore = true) {...

If you change the default value of the variable $fromStore from true to false, the parameter won't show up any more. You can archieve that with a before plugin as follows:

public function beforeGetCurrentUrl(Store $store, $fromStore = true) { return [false]; }

  • i only need to remove default store code, i need to use relevent store code aus for australia
