Migrated from Wordpress to Hugo: PushEVs

Hi guys.

Finally I’ve migrated my Wordpress blog to Hugo. Finding the ideal theme was the hardest part.

Here it’s: pushevs.com

I especially like the recent/featured posts widget in the sticky sidebar. The theme developer is also very knowledgeable and helpful, which made my decision easier.

What I like:

  • It’s now super fast with clean code
  • I’m now using AVIF image format
  • Backups and restores are easy with git
  • No worries about getting the Wordpress database hacked
  • Free hosting with Cloudflare Pages

Some improvements to be made:

  • Get disqus work with dark mode or simply replace it with giscus and lose all comments…
  • Fix all broken links (internal and external)
  • Get back to write articles every week

Wordpress and Hugo have different ways to translate post titles to url paths, I will take some time to fix all internal links.

For example in Wordpress we get:

Title: Battery energy density now reached 200 Wh/kg
URL: date/battery-energy-density-now-reached-200-wh-kg

In Hugo we get:

Title: Battery energy density now reached 200 Wh/kg
URL: date/battery-energy-density-now-reached-200-wh/kg

Wordpress replaces the slash with a hyphen.

Anyway, I welcome any suggestions and feedback to make the website better. Thanks!

You have accessibility issues to address. Use a tool like Wave (or their extension).
