How would I build the typical monthly archive pages in Hugo? See http://kottke.org/everfresh for an example. Basically grouping all posts by content type and their published month + year, then generating a list page for them.
I can’t find a way to do this in the docs but it is a pretty basic feature. Maybe the real question is, what is the plan regarding custom list page templates?
Sorry in advance if I just missed the relevant docs. :\
Hugo has support for this in the form of taxonomies. Taxonomies allow you to create any type of grouping you want to. While it does require a single extra field in the front matter, it is certainly simpler than any other solution.
Thanks spf for the tip :), thought I think it could be a very useful feature to provide this kind of grouping out of the box :).
Some kind of example would be nice. I’m not finding the documentation on taxonomy’s quick to parse.
I’d also like monthly and yearly archives, and I don’t think taxonomies are the best way to do so.
Could we have a way to generate archive pages for each year (with URL like
http://mysite.com/2015) and for each month (
If I recall I got this technique looking at @spf13’s site repo (thanks!), but I’m doing it via a section template, showing posts grouped by years on my blog top instead of just a list of posts.
The section page result is here:
And the template is here:
It’s not exactly what you want perhaps, but this was good enough for me. I did not see a need to have it in the sidebar a la Wordpress or whatever. YMMV. Perhaps it’ll spark an idea for you.
Thanks for your answer ! It’s interesting, but it has to be done manually.
It’s not really necessary for me either, but it’s handy to go back and see what was published that year or month.
I figured out a solution to this problem by leveraging taxonomies. See this post.
note: this is a full solution, not a workaround. It creates an
