Hi there, I could generate my technical doc page (blogs/mytechdoc.html) with uglyURLs = true in config.toml file. However, Hugo still generates directory + index.html file (blogs/mytechdoc/index.html) in addition to uglyURL(blogs/mytechdoc.html). To me it looks awkward because the content is duplicate. Is it possible to disable the prettyURL i.e blogs/mytechdoc/index.html when uglyURL is enabled. Thanks
I am unable to reproduce the behavior as described.
With this content:
content/ └── blogs/ └── mytechdoc.md
And this site configuration:
baseURL = 'https://example.org/' languageCode = 'en-us' title = 'My Site' disableKinds = ['sitemap','taxonomy','term'] uglyURLs = true
Hugo produces this:
public/ ├── blogs/ │ ├── index.xml │ └── mytechdoc.html ├── blogs.html ├── favicon.ico ├── index.html └── index.xml
public/blogs/index.xml is the RSS feed for the blogs section. If you don’t want to generate RSS feeds, add this to your site configuration
disableKinds = ['RSS']
Hi @jmooring , Appreciate your help
You are correct. I overlooked my output files. I was getting index.xml (not index.html). Let me give the directory content.
Originally I was getting three type of files generated.
public/ └── blogs/ └── mytechdoc/ └── index.html └── index.print.html └── index.xml
Once I set the
uglyURLs = true, my output stopped generating index.html, other contents were still generated
public/ └── blogs/ └── mytechdoc.html └── mytechdoc/ └── index.print.html └── index.xml
When turning on print feature, how do I generate
mytechdoc.print.html instead of
mytechdoc/index.print.html and similarly
mytechdoc.xml. Ideally I want to avoid generating the directory
mytechdoc/. Please advise.
Btw, I was using relearn theme from Hugo Relearn Theme
Without a repository to test with, the only suggestion I have is to test with a different configuration setting.
Currently you probably have:
[outputFormats] [outputFormats.PRINT] name= "PRINT" baseName = "index.print" isHTML = true mediaType = 'text/html' permalinkable = false noUgly = true
Try changing the last line to:
noUgly = false
You may not get exactly what you want, but it might be closer.
Hi @jmooring ,
I tried your step. when setting
noUgly = false, printable html is not generated, but generated if it is
noUgly = true. Even then this file is always generating index.print.html only under the ‘topic/’ directory. It does not generate ‘./topic.print.html’. Here is my hugo.toml copy for you. Let me know if you need to take a look at my repo or connect on a screen sharing meeting. Thank you

Well, yes, because we’re not going to try to reproduce the setup from scratch.
What time is good for you to connect? I work in IST hours
We’re going to do this asynchronously. Please share your repository, privately if you wish.
I changed my private repo to public. Here it is GitHub - sagayd/docs-ad-hugo: Documentation site development using AsciiDoctor and Hugo. During testing, I validate the output file of
blogs/how-to-deploy-spinnaker.adoc. Thanks for your assistance
The theme you have chosen is heavily abstracted, with an unusual and complicated approach to producing different output formats. The theme author did not anticipate a site author’s requirement to enable
uglyURLs for alternate output formats.
With this theme, in its current form, you cannot do what you want to do. If the theme were crafted differently, achieving the desired result is trivial as seen in this example:
git clone --single-branch -b hugo-forum-topic-43138 https://github.com/jmooring/hugo-testing hugo-forum-topic-43138 cd hugo-forum-topic-43138 hugo server
I tested the suffix parameter per your git repo code. On your repo it works, but I could not get it working on my doc site with the theme I have used. I am reaching out to the theme owner to see how to get it done.
