Step 1 : Create Dynamic Pages

Let’s create three dynamic pages using the Pages API. Here’s an example:

module.exports = function (api) {
    api.createPages(({createPage}) => {
            path: '/products/:slug',
            component: './src/templates/Product.vue'
            path: '/categories/:slug',
            component: './src/templates/Category.vue'
            path: '/shops/:slug',
            component: './src/templates/Shop.vue'

We’ve created the dynamic pages. Now we need to set rewrite rules to work the page’s routes on live server.

Step 2 : Rewrite Rules for Apache

On the root directory of your server, create a file called .htaccess and then open & paste the rules:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^products/([^/]*)$ products/_slug.html [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^shops/([^/]*)$ shops/_slug.html [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^categories/([^/]*)$ categories/_slug.html [NC,L]

Step 3 : Rewrite Rules for Nginx

In the Nginx configuration file, write rules like these:

location /products {
  rewrite ^/products/([^/]*)$ /products/_slug.html break;
location /shops {
  rewrite ^/shops/([^/]*)$ /shops/_slug.html break;
location /categories {
  rewrite ^/categories/([^/]*)$ /categories/_slug.html break;

Step 4 : Rewrite Rules for Netlify

Go to the static folder and create a file called “_redirects“. Then write rules like these:

/products/* /products/_slug.html 200
/shops/* /shops/_slug.html 200
/categories/* /categories/_slug.html 200
