Configuring custom layout for homepage in Next.js Landing Pages Template.

7 replies
Last updated: Aug 31, 2020
Happy Friday ๐Ÿ‘‹ - I am using the Next.js Landing Pages Template. At the moment all pages default to the 'LandingPage' layout, however I'd like to create a custom layout just for my homepage (to hide the footer etc). Is there a way for me to configure this? To direct 'frontpage' and '/' to the CustomLayout.js rather than the LandingPage.js?

Hi User, this should be possible by editing your
next.config.js
file. By default it uses the
LandingPage
template for all routes including
/
, with the exception of
/custom-page
, which gets the
CustomPage
template. You could edit how it builds the routes here.
Alternatively, you might be able to simply check for current slug inside
LandingPage
and show/hide the footer accordingly, for example.
Let me know if that gives you enough hints to go on

Hey
user M
- me again. I've run into an issue with my routing to custom page. As mentioned I redirected the '/' slug to go to the custom-page and made a new template in there just for the homepage (so I could hide the footer. It works fine when you access the homepage from the navigation HOWEVER if you just hit localhost:3000 it goes to a blank page. I'm guessing there is some more config I need to do?
My next.config.js

const withCSS = require("@zeit/next-css");
const client = require("./client");

const isProduction = process.env.NODE_ENV === "production";
const query = `
{
  "routes": *[_type == "route"] {
    ...,
    disallowRobot,
    includeInSitemap,
    page->{
      _id,
      title,
      _createdAt,
      _updatedAt
  }}
}
`;

const reduceRoutes = (obj, route) => {
  const { page = {}, slug = {} } = route;
  const { _createdAt, _updatedAt } = page;
  const { includeInSitemap, disallowRobot } = route;
  const path = route["slug"]["current"] === "/" ? "/" : `/${route["slug"]["current"]}`;
  obj[path] = {
    query: {
      slug: slug.current,
    },
    includeInSitemap,
    disallowRobot,
    _createdAt,
    _updatedAt,
    page: "/LandingPage",
  };
  return obj;
};

module.exports = withCSS({
  cssModules: true,
  cssLoaderOptions: {
    importLoaders: 1,
    localIdentName: isProduction ? "[hash:base64:5]" : "[name]__[local]___[hash:base64:5]",
  },
  exportPathMap: function () {
    return client.fetch(query).then((res) => {
      const { routes = [] } = res;
      const nextRoutes = {
        // Routes imported from sanity
        ...routes.filter(({ slug }) => slug.current).reduce(reduceRoutes, {}),
        "/": { page: "/CustomPage" },
      };
      return nextRoutes;
    });
  },
});
