This question might seem a bit noob-ish, please bear with me! I have zero experience of working with Hugo, but I’ve forked an existing theme hoping to make a relatively simple change to the theme.
Here’s all that I want to accomplish - I want a separate “home” page - or a landing page - for an existing theme, at the same time, moving the “listing” page (the current home page, that lists all posts) to say the “site” page (that should be available at
I can already replace the contents of
layouts/_defaults/list.html to create the landing page, or add a new page at
layouts/home.html - what I cannot figure is is “how” to have a separate
/site page and have it display the current home page.
Here’s what I’ve done so far
- I’ve tried to create a page
layoutsdirectory of my theme - to no avail.
- I’ve tried placing the
layouts/partials, again failing both times
- I’ve already gone through this answer to a similar question, but I could not understand anything through the links posted
- Yes, I’ve gone through the documentation as well (it was very… cryptic?)
- My only prior experience with an SSG was using a Jekyll theme (which I also modified a bit for my needs)
