Hi @SeeMe. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- This error typically occurs when you're trying to use the useLocation hook outside of a <Router> component. The useLocation hook is part of the react-router-dom library and it needs to be used within a component that is rendered within a <Router> component. If you're using the useLocation hook in your code, make sure that it's imported correctly from react-router-dom:
import { useLocation } from 'react-router-dom';
import { useLocation } from 'react-router-dom';
Also, ensure that the component using this hook is rendered within a <Router> component. For example, if you're using BrowserRouter, your code should look something like this:
import { BrowserRouter as Router } from 'react-router-dom';

// ...

<Router>
// Your component using useLocation goes here
</Router>
import { BrowserRouter as Router } from 'react-router-dom';

// ...

<Router>
// Your component using useLocation goes here
</Router>
If you're not directly using useLocation in your code, it might be used in one of the packages you're using. In this case, you might be facing a version conflict issue. Try removing the node_modules directory and package-lock.json file, and then reinstall your packages. If you're using Refine, make sure to use Refine hooks inside the scope of the <Refine> component, not in App.tsx as it's out of the scope of the <Refine> component. You can use Refine hooks inside the app (source (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/issues/1211)). If the issue persists, please provide more details about your setup, including the versions of react-router-dom and other relevant packages you're using, and the part of your code where you're encountering this error. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
