Hello awesome community!
I have a bunch of contents for a conference site, it’s organized like this:
│ ├── _index.md
│ ├── a-talk.md
│ ├── another-talk.md
│ ├── even-another-talk.md
│ └── yet-another-talk.md
I want to have several versions of each talk page, for instance:
So each talk page would have multiple layouts, using the same content.
Is this possible without doing copies of
a-talk/index.md => a-talk/fancy-display.md with taxonomy modified (which I would have to do for each talk)? Is there a way to easily define that everything in
content/talks/ should have multiple URLs with different layouts?
There are at least a couple of ways to do this. Here’s one that’s somewhat easy to wrap your head around…
git clone --single-branch -b hugo-forum-topic-37238 https://github.com/jmooring/hugo-testing hugo-forum-topic-37238
│ ├── talk-1/
│ │ ├── fancy.md
│ │ └── _index.md <-- this has the content
│ └── talk-2/
│ ├── fancy.md
│ └── _index.md <-- this has the content
The trick is to set the
layout value in front matter. Please clone the repository for details.
Thanks @jmooring for an inspirational answer – and in addition to that, templating your forum solutions with Github examples, it’s genius!
The solution seems to have an unquestionable “Hugo-way” about it, so I can guess it doesn’t get much better. It has the slight drawback that I have to create empty stubs for every instance of
/talks/<some-talk>/fancy/. I think that I can live with that, but I was hoping that Hugo would have a way of populating several URLs with different templates of the same content.
I see now that what I am talking about would be some kind of non-existing new Template Views feature.
You are welcome. The other approach that I mentioned does not require the “empty stubs.” It might be more to your liking.
