Multiple homepages for multiple configs?

I’m looking at converting a project built with a help authoring tool to Hugo.

This project can publish several different help sites, one for each product. There is a lot of shared content - so a single topic might appear in the help for products A, B and F.

I’ve set up a config folder with separate configurations for each product. And I can exclude topics which don’t belong in whichever target I’m building in Hugo.

But I’ve just realized that each help site needs its own homepage - and there can be only one homepage in Hugo.

Is there a way I might draw the title, description and content for the homepage not from content/index.html but from another place?

You can mount shared content across different projects. See:

That’s a great idea. I’ve been playing - but I can’t mount local folders.

For example, if I create a folder in the project root - mounts - do you know how I would specify the path?

I’ve got

    - source: mounts/resources
      target: content/en

but it’s not coming through.

You are using namespaces already used by Hugo internally.

Try using something different than mounts and resources for the mount source.

Brilliant. Hugo’s brilliant, and so is this place.
