Main block not rendered in custom archetype's layout


#1

My theme’s index uses baseof.html that calls for main block. But Hugo can’t seem to find this if I call main block from a custom archetypes layout. Specifically, from projects/list.html or projects/single.html. Why is it like this?

Thanks for your help!

Both your list.html and single.html only have partial calls and don’t include a main definition.

Try wrapping both of those templates in {{define "main"}}{{end}}.


#3

@rdwatters hmmm the partial and contents are wrapped with main … took the inspiration from your theme :slight_smile:

Check out this code, not in master branch

Yeah, i was looking here when running locally. One moment:

https://github.com/vinamelody/sam/commit/87e6ca5a018ccfbf3970b81bdabdcb56cfa4a2b9#diff-bd406634bba31a94446ffd6a6fa7db04


#5

Remove the whitespace - from the "main" definition. Works for me locally:


#6

Oh maan … whitespace! why whitespace is causing this lol :disappointed_relieved: … and ouch the images are gone too
Thank you so much for helping @rdwatters!


#7

Oh okay got it, so now each image should be pointed to the correct folder, such as like this <img alt="Image" src="{{.Site.BaseURL}}img/projects/001/work-8.jpg">

In a way, it might be helpful to split the statics used:

  • theme’s static should be put under themes/THEME_NAME/static/assets
  • site content’s static should be put under site’s root static

Nice! now I really excited to move forward! :smile:


#8

Hugo uses the “define” to identify if a template needs a base template. I have improved the detection to handle your syntax in the future:

I see… that’s a good thing … :slight_smile: !

Btw, @bep … if in localhost this page can render properly http://localhost:1313/projects/,
why it doesn’t work after deployed into Netlify https://improve-asset–cutter-robin-15288.netlify.com/projects/ ?

I’m confused with this behavior


#10

And that is the poor man’s regular expressions – but o so much faster.


#11

Update: I removed all dashes - and put Hugo version 0.26 in context. Now the list.html seems to work! :tada:

Thanks a lot for your help @bep!
