I’ve tried everything to install the Academic theme locally on Hugo. I cloned the git repo as per the instructions, but then in step 2, when in the site root, the second step of “git submodule update --init --recursive” led to an error (fatal: not a git repository…).
So, at that point I had Academic Kickstart installed via the cli. Then due to the error, I manually downloaded the Academic theme package and extracted its contents to the themes/Academic Kickstart/themes/academic/ folder.
My question is: what am I supposed to put into my Hugo config file for theme directive? (ie, theme = “Academic”?)
(actually, another question: is Academic theme a basic theme and Academic Kickstart some sort of a pagebuilder?)
Every other theme I’ve tried to install did so without a hitch: cd to theme directory, and then run git clone command etc, then add theme name to config file and cd back to site’s root and run Hugo server/preview changes. Very straightforward. But this one is confusing me.
Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong?
