    How to add link in Category Menu in Magento 2

    In this blog, I’ll explain how you can add link in category menu.

    First, create di.xml under [Namespace]/[Module]/etc/frontend/ folder with following content,

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
        <type name="Magento\Theme\Block\Html\Topmenu">
            <plugin name="offer-topmenu" type="[Namespace]\[Module]\Plugin\Block\Topcat" />

    Then create Topcat.php under [Namespace]/[Module]/Plugin/Block/ folder,

    namespace [Namespace]\[Module]\Plugin\Block;
    use Magento\Framework\Data\Tree\NodeFactory;
    class Topcat
        public function __construct(
            NodeFactory $nodeFactory,
            \Magento\Framework\UrlInterface $urlInterface
        ) {
            $this->nodeFactory = $nodeFactory;
            $this->urlInterface = $urlInterface;
        public function beforeGetHtml(
            \Magento\Theme\Block\Html\Topmenu $subject,
            $outermostClass = '',
            $childrenWrapClass = '',
            $limit = 0
        ) {
            $node = $this->nodeFactory->create(
                    'data' => $this->getNodeAsArray(),
                    'idField' => 'id',
                    'tree' => $subject->getMenu()->getTree()
        public function getNodeAsArray()
            return [
                'name' => __('Offers'),
                'id' => 'mpcampaign-offers-menu',
                'url' => $this->urlInterface->getUrl('mpcampaign/offer'),
                'has_active' => false,
                'is_active' => $this->isActive()
        private function isActive()
            $activeUrls = 'mpcampaign/offer';
            $currentUrl = $this->urlInterface->getCurrentUrl();
            if (strpos($currentUrl, $activeUrls) !== false) {
                return true;
            return false;

    It will add the menu in the category menu section as shown below,
