I use https://github.com/digitalcraftsman/hugo-material-docs and generally like it a lot. It does what I need and works well everywhere.
Several years ago I paid someone to make some small changes – in particular, to automatically put my banner at the top of each page. Unfortunately that person didn’t understand Hugo and made the changes to the theme directly rather than a local directory as normally suggested.
So now I can’t update the theme without wiping out the changes.
I’d also like to set up my sites to use a github sub-repository (as seems to be recommended by many themese) rather than copying the them into the site repo. And there are a few other things, in particular being able to have a single source for a page that is duplicated across multiple sites, things like that which I would like to get to once the original problem is solved.
Unfortunately I have created number of sites based on the incorrectly-modified theme, but I think it won’t be a problem to duplicate the corrections once they have been made.
I’m sure this is something that I could eventually figure out myself, but it’s been rather a long time and I haven’t gotten to it so I’m hoping there’s someone I can pay to do this and a handful of other things. And most importantly, do it right so I don’t run into problems like this in the future.
If there’s a smarter way of going about finding someone, I’d like to know that as well. Thanks for listening.
PS: I already reached out to digitalcraftsman but he’s not interested in consulting.
