I was using wordpress for my website but now i want to switch to Hugo but i have some confusions. I’m using a theme and cloned it from this repository (https://github.com/digitalcraftsman/hugo-agency-theme.git) but now i dont understand where should i create markdown files or do i even need to create it? I can easily just override html files in the layouts and partials folders. Also i dont get how md files will be converted to html? Can someone help me with that?
Thanks alot in advance
Oh thanks a lot for the help. Just one more question. Do I necessarily have to use markdown in Hugo or I can just stick to HTML?
No you don’t have to use markdown in Hugo. You can create a site completely in html.
For the other questions:
You can use the markdown files in /content folder or simply use
hugo new file-path and generate new .md files.
The benefit of using markdown is that if you have already have a stylized single-page or partial template then you can reuse the template for all the contents, instead of creating multiple static html files.
Hope this helps.
