Hello Magento pals

In Last We have learn How to Create Custom Order Status and State Programmatically in Magento 2, Today We are going to learn how you can restrict visitors to access category pages and redirect them to another page.
Generally, In default Magento2, every visitor or customer can access all the Magento frontend pages like category pages, product pages, etc.
But what if you want to restrict visitors and customers from accessing a particular page? and also, what if you want to restrict some pages and redirect visitors from that page to another page?
That another page can be a customer login or particular cms page.
E.g. : If you want to restrict visitors to access category page and redirect visitors to another page, then with the help of the below code you can achieve that. So let’s get to it.
- To do this, create di.xml file inside app\code\Vendor\Extension\etc\ folder and add below code:
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
<plugin name="category_page_restrict" type="Vendor\Extension\Plugin\Restrictcategory" sortOrder="1"/>
public function __construct(
$this->_url = $url;
$this->_responseFactory = $responseFactory;
public function afterGetIsActive(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Category $category)
if($category->getData('store_id')==1)//here you change condition as per need
// you can set any redirect url as per your requirement
$customRedirectionUrl = $this->_url->getUrl('customer/account/login');
- After applying these codes, clean the cache and then refresh it.
So, using the above codes, you can restrict visitors and your customers to access the category pages and redirect them to another page you want.
