WooCommerce: Assigning an endpoint to a custom template in my account pages

This function adds a tab named "Special Page" into "My Account" tab list:

add_filter( 'woocommerce_account_menu_items' , 'jc_menu_panel_nav' );

function jc_menu_panel_nav() {
    $items = array(
        'dashboard'       => __( 'Dashboard', 'woocommerce' ),
        'orders'          => __( 'Orders', 'woocommerce' ),
        'downloads'       => __( 'Downloads', 'woocommerce' ),
        'edit-address'    => __( 'Addresses', 'woocommerce' ),
        'payment-methods' => __( 'Payment Methods', 'woocommerce' ),
        'edit-account'    => __( 'Account Details', 'woocommerce' ),
        'special-page' => __( 'Special Page', 'woocommerce' ), // My custom tab here
        'customer-logout' => __( 'Logout', 'woocommerce' ),

    return $items;

That results in this:

But the link points to my-account/special-page/, and naturally gives a 404 error.

How I can assign this URL to a file named special-page.php?


Finally I could solve the problem using a snippet provided for the same people of WooCommerce (There are more tips in that page). For anyone interested, paste all the following code in functions.php:

function my_custom_endpoints() {
    add_rewrite_endpoint( 'special-page', EP_ROOT | EP_PAGES );

add_action( 'init', 'my_custom_endpoints' );

function my_custom_query_vars( $vars ) {
    $vars[] = 'special-page';

    return $vars;

add_filter( 'query_vars', 'my_custom_query_vars', 0 );

function my_custom_flush_rewrite_rules() {

add_action( 'wp_loaded', 'my_custom_flush_rewrite_rules' );

I think this way allows more control to order/renaming the menu:

function my_custom_my_account_menu_items( $items ) {
    $items = array(
        'dashboard'         => __( 'Dashboard', 'woocommerce' ),
        'orders'            => __( 'Orders', 'woocommerce' ),
        //'downloads'       => __( 'Downloads', 'woocommerce' ),
        //'edit-address'    => __( 'Addresses', 'woocommerce' ),
        //'payment-methods' => __( 'Payment Methods', 'woocommerce' ),
        'edit-account'      => __( 'Edit Account', 'woocommerce' ),
        'special-page'      => 'Special Page',
        'customer-logout'   => __( 'Logout', 'woocommerce' ),

    return $items;

add_filter( 'woocommerce_account_menu_items', 'my_custom_my_account_menu_items' );

In the following function I included the file to maintain some "order", but it also admits direct code.

Be sure to place the special-page.php file in the myaccount folder.

function my_custom_endpoint_content() {
    include 'woocommerce/myaccount/special-page.php'; 

add_action( 'woocommerce_account_special-page_endpoint', 'my_custom_endpoint_content' );

Important: Once did this, go to Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks and click "Save Settings" in order to flush rewrite rules (thanks @optimiertes)

First my-account/special-page/ should be myaccount/special-page/ in woocommerce 2.6+.

This solution is Incomplete and I am still working On…

You can use first this hook:

add_action( 'init', 'add_wc_endpoint' );
function add_wc_endpoint(){
    add_rewrite_endpoint( 'special-page', EP_ROOT | EP_PAGES );

Then filtering wc_get_templateto call your files when the request match your endpoint:

add_filter( 'wc_get_template', 'custom_vc_endpoint', 10, 5 );
function custom_vc_endpoint($located, $template_name, $args, $template_path, $default_path){

    if( $template_name == 'myaccount/special-page.php' ){
        global $wp_query;
            $located = get_template_directory() . '/woocommerce/myaccount/special-page.php';

    return $located;

If you use a child theme, replace get_template_directory() by get_stylesheet_directory()… Paste this code in function.php file of your active child theme or theme.

To avoid a 404 error "page not found", you will need to refresh rewrite rules adding to your code:


Update: Finally Dario has found a working solution. Look at his answer.


There is a better way to use a template in your custom page in woocommerce:

function my_custom_endpoint_content() {
    wc_get_template( 'myaccount/special-page.php' ); 

add_action( 'woocommerce_account_special-page_endpoint', 'my_custom_endpoint_content' );

this should work without using the wc_get_template filter.
