Customizing the "Contact" widget in Hugo Academic


I am wanting to add a few words to the part of the Hugo Academic template that says Contact & that provides a form for emailing me.

Can anyone point me to the line of code that houses the word “Contact” so that I can add a little context to that message?

Hiya! The Academic theme was created by @neutreno. It has a dedicated issue queue and community chat. :slight_smile:

My guess is you’ll need to override the contacts partial

So on your site, make a copy of the above file and put it in /layouts/partials/widgets/contact.html and make the changes you want. When your site is built, Hugo will use your version of the template rather than the theme.
