Adding to Icon Theme

Using stock Icon Theme I am trying to follow the instructions for adding blog content to the theme.

I was able to add blog to the menu but can not display any content contained in /content/blog.

When I click the blog link I get a blank page and the source shows

<pre> </pre>

Can someone give me the steps to add a page?

I am sure this is something fundamental that I am missing.
Hugo gives no indication of what may be wrong. :roll_eyes:

So far this post seems to be the best discussion of the difficulty I think I am having:

But so far I can’t seem to get even a single file to render from the blog folder for this theme.
Is anyone able to take a look?

The theme does not seem to have anything inside its layouts/_default/list.html file, so /blog/ renders a blank page.

Its single.html similarly appears to be empty.

Thank You for the tips!

I used @zwbetz super great guide at to help me thru populating the the layouts. I had to make only a slight adjustment to point to the themes CSS.

Now I have poetry in my blog. :grinning:
