Having trouble with hugo-incorporated theme

I DL’d hugo yesterday (Hugo Static Site Generator v0.13 BuildDate: 2015-05-14T17:33:43-05:00) and I’m more comfortable programming than designing.

Using hugo’s server ($ hugo server --theme=hugo-incorporated --buildDrafts --watch -bmyserver), the site displays and appears to be themed (the site looks different than if I chose a different theme) but it doesn’t seem to be working correctly. For example, instead of a picture across the top of the page, there is a black bar. In peeking at the css, etc. this theme also looks really complex.

Is there a better theme for a simple brochure-ware website for a consultant?

I was going to suggest hugo-inc. before I saw that you had trouble with it …

I haven’t used it myself, other than tried it on the hugo themes site (coming).

It doesn’t look TOO hard to use.

It has a sample config.toml with all the setings. If you copy all or parts of this into your own, you should get a good start.


Re. the black bar, see the mentioned config:

cover_image:  blog-cover.jpg  
logo:         logo.png

You mus put these images reletive to /static.

Re the black bar, the theme came with these:

$ ls -l themes/hugo-incorporated/static/images/
total 392
-rw-rw-r--. 1 amead amead 196425 May 14 17:59 blog-cover.jpg
-rw-rw-r--. 1 amead amead  11767 May 14 17:59 faces.jpg
-rw-rw-r--. 1 amead amead 186302 May 14 17:59 incorporated.jpg
-rw-rw-r--. 1 amead amead   1652 May 14 17:59 logo.png

Do they meed to be moved somewhere for them to be picked up?

When I do a “find broken images” the broken image seems to be http://myserver:1313/images/

Try to add /images/ to the image refs above – if that works you should notify the theme author.
