Hugo pre-live checks?

Hi Everyone, I’m 99% complete with my new hugo site now and I’m ready to push it live.

Is there a hugo ‘pre-live’ checklist?

I’m looking for more advice around draft / published states, published date (does it matter?)

When I’m making the site live It will replace a wordpress site, it has a load of number #1/2/3 rankings which I don’t want to drop too much, should I keep the published dates the same? The content / meta are the same, so I’m not too concerned, just want to double check on these issues first.


Two QA checks:

hugo --path-warnings
grep --color --only-matching --recursive --ignore-case --extended-regexp "<\!-- raw HTML omitted -->|ZgotmplZ|hahahugo" public/
