I want to add a button to abc.com/customer/account page when the user click it, it will redirect to a new page e.g. customer/account/upgrademember. How can I do this? I find it difficult to route it to my module. In Magento_Customer module, the \Magento\Customer\etc\frontend\route.xml defines when the frontName is customer, Magento will go to Magento_Customer module. But I create a new Controller upgrademember.php in my module. How can the Magento go to my upgrademember.php when the user clicks the abc.com/ccustomer/account/upgrademember.?


Finally, I got another solution. It is adding routes.xml under etc/frontend

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:App/etc/routes.xsd">
   <router id="standard">
        <route id="customer" frontName="customer">
            <module name="Namespace_ModuleName" />

It will redirect the upgrade abc.com/ccustomer/account/upgrademember to the my custom module's controller UpgradeMember.php

  • will this override the customer module frontname or just extend this with our custom route ? what about the priority of the route if the same class exist in both module ? – Zeeshan Khuwaja May 28 '18 at 2:18

You can try this.
In your module add this in di.xml

<type name="Magento\Framework\App\Router\ActionList\Reader">
    <plugin name="namespace-module-route" type="Namespace\Module\Model\Plugin\ActionListReader" sortOrder="100" />

then create the file Namespace/Module/Model/Plugin/ActionListReader.php with this content:

namespace Namespace\Module\Model\Plugin;

class ActionListReader
    public function afterRead(\Magento\Framework\App\Router\ActionList\Reader\Interceptor $subject, $actions)
        $actions['magento\customer\controller\account\upgrademember'] = 'Namespace\Module\Controller\Customer\Account\Upgrademember'; //your class name should go here.
        return $actions;
  • I've tried, but it failed to plugin Magento\Framework\App\Router\ActionList\Reader, since I added a error_log() in afterRead(), but it logged nothing. Thanks. – Ricky.C Dec 11 '15 at 8:50
  • @ricky :- post your code – Pradeep Kumar Dec 14 '15 at 3:49
  • @Pradeep Kumar I use phpstorm to write the plugin, phpstorm shows 'cannot resolve symbol' error on <type name="Magento\Framework\App\Router\ActionList\Reader"> and 'undefined namespace' error on public function afterRead(\Magento\Framework\App\Router\ActionList\Reader\Interceptor $subject, $actions) Also, I can't find the file at lib. – Ricky.C Dec 14 '15 at 6:03
  • this does not work in M2.2, class does not exist and i have not found the usage of it in any of the core module. – Zeeshan Khuwaja May 28 '18 at 2:43
