Answer Source

First of all you are trying to use ui-router but you're including ngRoute script in your plunker. Change it to

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/angular-ui-router/0.3.1/angular-ui-router.min.js"></script>

Then everything should work fine!

I suggest you a few changes...

1. Use ui-sref instead of href because it's much easier to define

ui-sref="post({id:1})" which turns into href="#/news/1"

If you would like to change url some day, then you will have to just change your route file, not each href.

$stateProvider .state('post', { url: "news/:id"


$stateProvider .state('post', { url: "archive/:id"


$stateProvider .state('post', { url: "whatever/:id"

2. Use abstract state

In your example it's a way better to define abstract state which holds header, content and footer - it's a typical use case.

ui-router Abstract States

An abstract state can have child states but can not get activated itself. An 'abstract' state is simply a state that can't be transitioned to. It is activated implicitly when one of its descendants are activated.

Some examples of how you might use an abstract state are:

To prepend a url to all child state urls. To insert a template with its own ui-view(s) that its child states will populate. Optionally assign a controller to the template. The controller must pair to a template. Additionally, inherit $scope objects down to children, just understand that this happens via the view hierarchy, not the state hierarchy. To provide resolved dependencies via resolve for use by child states. To provide inherited custom data via data for use by child states or an event listener. To run an onEnter or onExit function that may modify the application in someway. Any combination of the above. Remember: Abstract states still need their own for their children to plug into. So if you are using an abstract state just to prepend a url, set resolves/data, or run an onEnter/Exit function, then you'll additionally need to set template: "".

Here's a plunker which shows how I would do it.


Hope it helps.
