Hugo no longer generates the homepage index.html from the root of the content folder

In a single page website, I have a content/index.html file in the root of the content folder.

When using Hugo 0.19, the homepage /index.html was correctly generated in the root of the website.

After upgrading to Hugo 0.20.2, the file is now generated in

and an index.xml file is generated in the root of the site, which appears to be a RSS file:
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:atom="">

P.S. I’m using a single layout file in _layouts/default/single.html

@anaurelian Can you point me to your source? Even for v19, a lot of what you wrote seems a bit…not Hugo-ish. For example, content/ is usually reserved for content markup formats (viz., markdown). The index.html should be in layouts and will not render according to a single.html layout, not did it with v19.

I’d like to help, but I need to look at a bit more source, please :smile:
