https://gohugo.io/getting-started/configuration/ suggests that
config/config.toml is a valid location for a config file.
I thought that
config/_default/config.toml will also be merged by with
config/config.toml. But it rather seems like
config/config.toml gets ignored completely.
What am I missing?
Considering the structure above, when running
hugo --environment staging , Hugo will use every settings from
config/_default and merge
staging ’s on top of those.
@ju52 True - but you seem to focus a little too much on the merging.
The documentation explicitly lists a
config/config.toml file. For me a file at that location just gets ignored. That’s the main angle of my question.
you can override the locatoin with configDir!
With the new environment mechanism it moved to config/_default/
If you have only one config file, hugo should find it on both places.
Both places as in
? That I can confirm. But
config/config.toml seems to be a miss.
So is the documentation outdated?
