I’m having a heck of a time figuring this out - and I feel like it should be easy, and that I’m missing something so simple…
I am able to make an “about” page simple enough - hugo new about.md - populate it, undraft it, and it shows up basically right away in it’s internal server. Same for any number of 1st level menu pages.
I cannot wrap my brain around how to get basic content to show up on the home page / . I have tried:
- Read the docs at https://gohugo.io/templates/homepage/ - this seems to suggest that I need to make a custom template for the home page. I’m OK with that - the home page won’t have any content other than a single blurb of text - but I still don’t know where to put the content.
- Content/index.md - This generates an “index” in the menu bar (in addition to Home and About). Both Home and index are empty.
- content/_index.md - No menu entry here, but the content doesn’t appear either. It’s as if it doesn’t exist.
- content/index/_index.md - I forget where I had seen this referenced, but this doesn’t generate content either.
I recongnize the power in any tool like this is that it can be made into anything and fit a wide range of needs… but I’m lost on how to put a simple piece of content as my front page.
I am using v0.19-DEV from the git repo.
Thanks in advance for any help!
I’m really green to Hugo … just started with it today, with the intent of making a simple website for a club my kids are in. 6 pages, no active content, thinking that this is a great opportunity to learn a tool like this (versus Jekyll or whatnot).
