Custom URL in PrestaShop using moduleRoutes

Updated 29 April 2022

In this blog, we are going to learn how to show custom URL in PrestaShop using moduleRoutes hook. With the help of moduleRoutes hook we can also create custom rules for module controller.

If module is using front controller then it generates URL’s according to the below rule


For instance, the controller demo of the module demo_module will have the address:

Custom URL in PrestaShop
Before moduleRoutes Hook

In above image you can see module name and controller are visible in url. But in Prestashop there is a way to hide the original address of the controller with the help of the hook mоduleRоutes.

Prestashop will use this pattern to compare addresses: module-{module_name}-{controller_name}

public function hookModuleRoutes() {
    return array(
        'module-demo_module-demo' => array( 
            'controller' => 'demo', //front controller name
            'rule' => 'mypage', //the desired page URL
            'keywords' => array(
                'link_rewrite' => array(
                    'regexp' => '[_a-zA-Z0-9-\pL]*', 
                    'param' => 'link_rewrite'
            'params' => array(
                'fc' => 'module',
                'module' => 'demo_module', //module name

When ever we open demo_module -> demo controller then the URL will be as https://{your_site}/mypage as shown in above image.

Dispatcher::loadRoutes(), is responsible for loading patterns, will load your custom rule before other rules, therefore the custom rule will have a higher priority than the predefined PrestaShop rule.

That’s all.
