Hugo Version 0.31.1 on Gitlab

I use Hugo version 0.31.1 on my computer. In the theme.toml have I have the entry min_version = “0.31.1”.

After the upload, I get the following error message:

$ hugo
ERROR 2017/12/10 20:56:01 Current theme does not support Hugo version 0.30.2. Minimum version required is 0.31.1

Then I have set the theme.toml to min_Version 0.30.2. With this version, the page is created on Gitlab. Unfortunately, this page is displayed differently than on my computer.
On Gitlab the Page content is created with the content in content/index.md. On my computer with the Hugo version 0.31.1 the list page is displayed as Home page.

As a third attempt I deleted the line min_version = “0.30.2”. Now the List page will be displayed on Gitlab.

Here my questions:

  1. How important is the line min_version = “x.x.x”?
  2. Is the Docker image too old?
  3. Why does not Hugo use version 0.31.1. the /content/index.md to display the home page?
  4. How can I solve this problem.
  5. How do I update Hugo in the future (new versions of Hugo)?

My repo is public https://gitlab.com/joklein/hugo

Thank you for the help

This is the behaviour for Hugo >= 0.19 (I think). You end up with two pages that point to the same place on disk, and it is a little bit random which one you end up with. Rename the index.md to _index.md.

The _index.md produces a list page and not a single page.

You have 2 options.

  1. Use a different Hugo Docker image on Gitlab that is more recent.

  2. Choose the Hugo version you need on Gitlab.

EDIT
Upon closer inspection of your .gitlab-ci.yml you are using the latest Hugo at the Gitlab container registry and that is version 0.30.2

Hugo 0.31.1 does not exist in the Gitlab container registry yet: https://gitlab.com/pages/hugo/container_registry

The hugo/monachus image is also v. 0.30.2 v. 0.31.1 see here
