First of all I made the message you sent me public and I merged it with your topic.
I certainly apologize. The topic did seem as a duplicate at first and as such it was closed.
There was no harshness or anything of the sort, since duplicate topics are usually closed, at least as far as I am concerned.
Now to the topic on hand. I tested your repo and I noticed a couple of things.
First of all the draft true parameter is entered in the
_index.md of a section called
/test/ in Hugo 0.57.0 the creation of sections has changed.
Only @bep can give a reply whether what you describe is a bug or a breaking change.
However in my humble opinion why would someone enter
draft = true for an entire section
Now regarding the ERROR about
executing "_default/list.html" at <.Content>: error calling Content: runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference I did notice that you tried to call
.Content on its own (here and here) without it being within the
range of some kind of Page collection.
It seems that since that section is a draft then somehow Hugo still thinks it is (even if it is created in 0.57) and hence the
nil pointer dereference
Again there was no intention to offend.
