JavaScript React Router 4 Basics Navigating, Nesting and Redirecting Routes Using the Match Object

Redirecting of Course link repeating path

On the lesson using the match object when a user clicks on the courses link instead of the user being routed to HTML like the example they are seeing a blank page. In my URL I noticed it is being displayed as http://localhost:3000/courses/courses.

Here is the code snippet driving the behavior. It's the same as the example so I am a bit perplexed.

<Route exact path={match.path} render={ () => <Redirect to={`${match.path}/html`}/> } />

The path should be as shown below:

<Route exact path={`${match.path}`} render={ () => <Redirect to={`${match.path}/html`} /> } />
