      <Header />
        <Route path="/articles/:title">
          <Article />
        <Route path="/about">
        <Route path="/sign-up">
        <Route path='/articles'>
        <Route path="/categories">
        <Route path="/profile">
      <Footer />

This is how I have my router set up but for some reason my Articles component gets rendered below my Article component when I navigate to an article page

Your path ‘/articles’ fits both: ‘/articles’ and ‘/articles/:title’. Place the keyword exact before path:

<Route exact path='/articles'>

Thank you! I realized my question was actually jumping ahead. A few exercises later they explained that that was the intended behavior. I just didn’t know because the video didn’t depict that lol.
