Adding Tags and Categories to blog post

I apologize for my obtuseness, but I am using Hugo for a personal blog. I would like the markdown to contain tags and/or categories that would be displayed and used. I just do not get the steps that are necessary after reading the documentation. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.


category = "categories"
tag = "tags"

content/post/ (TOML):

title = "Foo"
date = 2020-07-16T16:08:16-04:00
draft = false
categories = ["planes", "trains", "automobiles"]
tags = ["Steve Martin", "John Candy"]
This is the content of my page.

content/post/ (YAML):

title: Foo
date: 2020-07-16T20:08:16.000Z
draft: false
  - planes
  - trains
  - automobiles
  - Steve Martin
  - John Candy
This is the content of my page.

Then, assuming you have the basic templates in place, run hugo server and visit:


Mmmmm … @jmooring for this, you are going the wrong way
