Can default be used with block?

I’m trying to use default with block as shown below:

<title>{{ block "title" . | default .Title }}</title>

But this doesn’t work as if there is a .Title but no block "title", nothing is shown.

Can these two functions be used together?

Don’t think so. But you ought to put the default in the title block, to operate on the title.

No they can’t. The block is only to demark how partials and “sub”-templates are used within your templates. block is not a function in the sense of you using it in a template. It’s a placeholder for something. Then you add the contents of the something in lower templates. You should check there if .Title is set and set a default.

Set the default value(s) inside your block, e.g.:

<title>{{ block "title" . }}{{ .Title }}{{ end }}</title>
