Next.js-express dynamic routing causes page reload

kundan asked 2 weeks ago

I have a blog application created with next js using an express custom browser. When i click on a Link to route to ‘/blog/article-1’ it refreshes the page on arriving at that page. How do i avoid this?

server.js file

const express = require('express');
const next = require('next');
const port = 80;
const dev = process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production';
const app = next({ dev });
const handle = app.getRequestHandler();
const compression = require('compression');

  .then(() => {
    const server = express();
    server.get('/blog', (req, res) => app.render(req, res, '/blog', req.query));
    server.get('/blog/:postslug', (req, res) => {
      const params = { postslug: req.params.postslug }
      return app.render(req, res, '/blog/post', params)

    server.get('*', (req, res) => handle(req, res));

    server.listen(port, (err) => {
      if (err) throw err;
      console.log(`> Ready on http://localhost:${port}`);

File which links to articles

import React, { Fragment } from 'react';
import Link from 'next/link';

export default (props) => {

  return (
      <Link href={`/blog/${dynamicPostSlug}`}>
          Go to article

File where post appears

import React, { Component, Fragment } from 'react';
import { withRouter } from 'next/router';
import 'isomorphic-unfetch';

class post extends Component {

  static async getInitialProps({ req }) {
    try {
      const res = await fetch(`http://localhost/api/posts/${req.params.postslug}`, {
        method: 'GET', // *GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc.
        mode: 'cors', // no-cors, cors, *same-origin
      const json = await res.json();
      return { data: };
    } catch (err) {

  render() {
    const { data } = this.props;
    return (
        <PostContentComesHere data={data}/>
export default withRouter(post);

I have already checked the next.js docs and it has this implementation which uses the node http module. I implemented this code on express by copying some parts from the documentation example. However it still seems to cause a page reload when i go to the article page using a .
