Good slides … There is a tiny error on slide 23. The base templates in Hugo (block support) must be named “baseof.html”. I created this name pattern when I introduced base templates for Ace, so “baseof.ace” … Ace of Base (that Swedish pop band from the 90s).


Thanks good point. Had no clue. Just copied this new feature from the docu Cheers.

Feel free to link your slides in the press section.

hihi, didn’t know that. Great idea.

Btw, just changed from long time using Jekyll to Hugo about 3 weeks ago. Amazing, not going back. Observations: Some things in Hugo appear more complicated than in Jekyll, but to me Hugo is by far more flexible. Not to talk about speed. This is the killer feature anyway. Great work, very well appreciated.

Best regards from Germany,
