Flash of 404 page when redirecting to external sites #8

The following two things don't work well together:

  • 404 page
  • we have a few redirects that we can use as short links, i.e., will short link to our talks repo

lines of thoughts on solution

Originally I was hoping to "just solve" the issue, i.e., make it not display the 404 page and therefore would be a white screen, and the URL magically changes to the external link and it redirects.
Then as I read the issue in Gatsby's repo I realize we should probably create a redirect page (maybe using the same logo with 404, replacing the text)


our code
