Academic Theme: Blogdown error

I had run the Hugo-Academic package.

library(blogdown)
blogdown::build_site
Under “Add-ins” serve_site
I had put Tools -> version control -> project setup.

I then modified the various files, exchanging my info from the default info.

At each change, I checked the visual or re-ran serve_site to make sure I didn’t break anything.

The last thing I did, was to turn some of the pages off by changing true to false.

I ran serve_site again, and the pages or widgets I had turned off, were indeed, turned off.

I shut down and when returning for a new session, I could not serve the site.

ERROR TYPE
Error in shell(cmd, mustWork = TRUE, intern = intern) :
‘“C:\Users\Robert\AppData\Roaming\Hugo\hugo.exe” -b / -D -F -d “public” --themesDir themes -t hugo-academic’ execution failed with error code 1

I don’t know what that is telling me or how to resolve it.

This is not a Hugo console ERROR. A casual search at the Academic theme’s GitHub repo shows that this is a Blogdown error. See here:

However I am afraid that we do not offer support for Blogdown in this forum.
