Hello @balzerrei

You have to use catchall_document to fix this routing issue. We don’t support it in UI yet. You might have to configure catchall_document via doctl or API. There is a similar discussion in our another community link which might help:

Thanks for your answer @dikshith.

With this new catchall_document I am getting always the index.htmlinstead of the requested e.g.: team.html when i am on /team and do a hard reload.

This is not what I am looking for. So other than publishing the site as a web Serve instead of a static site a can’t resolve this issue?
