In the last tutorial we have seen there happened to be a change in the url. The url changed from http://127.0.0.1:58586/index.html to http://127.0.0.1:58586/index.html#/ . This change is because of the introduction of the ui-router and its default state mechanisms. By default ui-router uses # tag for navigation and this behavior needs to be overridden. To bring back to the normal url without # tag we need to implement the following steps.
