How to get the current URL in Magento 2 blocks and templates?

Sometimes you need to get the current URL in your Magento 2 block or templates or get product URL in Magento 2. In Magento 2 to get store URL we usually work with the getCurrentUrl() function. Let’s see what steps you need to undertake.

Step 1. First of all, you need to create a new block in your plugin. For example, we have made Block/Test.php with the following code using the Magento framework view element template:

<?php

namespace <Vendor>\<Module>\Block;

use Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface;

class Test extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template
{
/**
* @var QuoteEmail
*/
private $storeManager;

public function __construct(
StoreManagerInterface $storeManager,
\Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context $context,
array $data = []
) {
$this->storeManager = $storeManager;
parent::__construct($context, $data);
}

public function getCurrentUrl() {
return $this->storeManager->getStore()->getCurrentUrl();
}


}

Step 2. Next, you need to create a template file for this block in the view/frontend/templates/ folder. In our case, we have made test.phtml. There are 2 options for how you can get the current URL parameters in the Magento template. See the example below:

<?php
//1 way
$block->escapeUrl($block->getUrl('*/*/*', ['_current' => true, '_use_rewrite' => true]));
//2 way
$block->escapeUrl($block->getCurrentUrl());
?>

It’s better to use the second way, but the first is acceptable too. Don’t forget to clean the cache after saving the changes.


Helpful hint: To avoid the problem of numerous links for the same product or too long paths to your prod pages, try out this Unique Product URL. Set up automatic redirects from non-essential URLs to the main ones, ignore secondary categories in a prod path to shorten and, therefore, optimize the paths not only for users but also for search engines.
