Not using a theme.
Homepage in layouts > index.html
New page I want in content > page > living.md
I expect to visit localhost:1313/page/living to view the page, but getting 404
Edit: I added empty file layouts > _dafault.single.html file to try to solve. Still no luck.
Your layouts cannot be empty, as they are how Hugo works to merge content markdown with HTML and the needed css. I recommend using a theme at first until you can see how things work. Then, you can use your own layouts instead.
I believe you have your default single.html file set up incorrectly.
Instead of having a file called
_default.single.html create a folder called
_default with a
single.html file inside.
