I have a multiple author blog that I want to have author specific blog post archive pages for. I’m able to do this with taxonomies, it feels slightly unintuitive but that’s fine cause it works. The real issue i have is that I’d like to customize the URL. Currently it defaults to
/author/joe-schmoe/. I’d like it to be a sub-directoy of the blog so
I’ve had the exact same questions, and I’m heading down two paths:
I submitted a PR that is looking to add built in author support on the same level as taxonomies. http://discuss.gohugo.io/t/hugo-seo-social-partials/353/18 Part of that will include built in user archives. I’m hoping that we can get this finalized for .13
I asked a similar question here - http://discuss.gohugo.io/t/create-section-taxonomies/343. Essentially we’re both looking for section level taxonomies, with the additional functionality of being able to customize the output url. I haven’t done as much investigating here, but plan to once these other items I’m working on are solidified. That probably isn’t very helpful in the short term.
Nice! Short term what i have works and thats good enough. Just wanted to make sure i wasn’t missing something and to put it on a long term map.
