Netlify "page not found" when sharing React-Router-Dom based links

Not seeing where you create your _redirects, @Santoro? Could you tell me how you’re making the one that is described here?

I created a _redirects file in public folder with this content below:


Redirects from what the browser requests to what we serve

/* /index.html 200

I’ve got that kind of problem too, I’ve been using react-router-dom and on localhost links worked fine, until I’ve pushed my repo to github and deployed it to netlify, what I did was just adding a _redirect file inside public/ folder and put /* /index.html 200 inside of that file, and voilà my links a now working on Netlify.
I’ve created a community account just to thank you.
Love the Netlify product <3

glad it is working for you! thanks for the kind words :slight_smile:

Create the _redirects file worked for me too! Thx :blush:


Thanks very much Mr. @jaylowe1 and @luke, it works, just to recap:

  1. Add _redirects file in your public folder
  2. Write down inside file:

/* /index.html 200

In my case I have no issues with my builder adding .txt extension, I’m using CRA(Create React App).

You guys Rock!


this worked like a charm, thank you!

Hi there,

I think I have a similar issue, though adding the _redirects file within the public directory has not solved it.

Whenever I try and route to a page through a direct (nested) URL , such as ‘JVC Parry’, it fails to load a page and gives the error

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token '<' main.e3eaf229.chunk.js:1

However when I navigate the deployed version through links, everything loads fine. I also don’t get this error when I’m running the app locally, which I guess means it must be something to do with deployment?

I’ve trawled through all the other posts I can find with this error, and also things to do with Netlify/CRA deployments.

My code is on github here: GitHub - NatClamp/jvcparry

Deployed version is here: and if you go to JVC Parry you’ll see the error I’m getting.
This is the netlify page: Netlify App

Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanks in advance

hi there! can you first confirm that all of your redirects are being processed?

I’m experiencing the same problem as @ichbinclamp , and my one redirect rule /* /index.html 200 is indeed being processed fine. Any thoughts?

Edit: it seems that it’s trying to retrieve the /static/ js / CSS files at the end of the full path, instead of at the root of the site? Related to this post: Create-react-app netlify.toml redirects rule redirects all static js files to index.html

Hi, @brianjychan. The redirect rule you posted wouldn’t make that change.

The issue has to do with how the assets are referenced in the HTML. For example:


That will always load manifest.json from the site root.

However, if the reference one of these below instead:




Then the URL used for the HTTP request will be relative to the current path.

Would you please send us a link to the site? If so, we will be happy to see if that is the issue or not.

I found the issue! In my package.json, I had marked homepage as "./", so changing it to "/" removed the error. Thanks @luke your point tipped me off to it.
