I published a static website (Nuxt 3) on Cloudflare pages. The problem is that it automatically adds a trailing slash at the end of some URLs, creating some nasty 308 redirects which completely break my linking for SEO.
Ex: website.com/blog/my-article => website.com/blog/my-article/
Is there a way to disable that? I searched for 30 minutes and no solution was provided in any of the topics already posted.
This behavior is documented here: Serving Pages · Cloudflare Pages docs and cannot be disabled.
There are workarounds with how you can name your files: Why We Switched CDNs: How Google's Core Web Vitals Led Us to Cloudflare Pages - Electric UI, but nothing easy. If you do
/contact.html instead of
/contact/index.html, it becomes
/contact and not
/contact.html would redirect back to
That’s annoying… I can’t control how the files are named so it’s a no-go for me (and all Nuxt users).
I guess I’ll have to find another host
Edit: Found a solution even if an option to control trailing slashes would be better
Add this to nuxt.config.js:
Will generate blog.html instead of blog/index.html, which don’t have trailing slashes
