This is really simple, and somewhat obvious, but because I couldn’t find a singular, explicit answer to the question of: “How do you disable RSS for sections?” I figured I’d share this snippet.
In your config.toml add:
[outputs] home = ["HTML", "RSS"] section = ["HTML"]
This will keep the root RSS (index.xml) for the whole site, but will disable it on a section by section basis. So you don’t end up with index.xml files in all the main section subdirectories.
This is taken from the Custom Outputs doc, which is a wee bit confusing.
Tangentially: What’s the best way to submit edits for documentation? Pull requests on the repo?
