@maiki Any thoughts about the 240-hour message I mentioned?
As it turned out, I think this was a false alarm, but messages like that do nothing to foster the calm space that you, so correctly, want to see. Is it any wonder I seemed distressed?
Anyhow things have moved on. I am now using the Icarus theme which looks really good, and I’m hosting with Netlify, who are really good and have a really calm and civilised support space.
I’ve abandoned Gitlab as well and switched to Github where things just work. As I mentioned before there are countless unresolved Gitlab + Hugo issues on the web, surely indicating some fundamental issues with Gitlab.
I’m having issues with the Netlify version of the site displaying differently from the same site but accessed via my custom domain, and only in Firefox Quantum. It’s very strange. I’ve raised issues on the Firefox forums. I can provide more info if anyone is interested in helping (hint, hint…)!
Correction. This last issue has been solved by the amazing Jessica at Netlify who suggested changing the
baseurl setting in my
config.toml simply to
"/". This has sorted out the fonts so that various social network symbols like the Twitter bird all displayed correctly. This was due to domain conflicts and CORS issues. More here
So, everything is good now, I just need to write some decent content, but that can wait for another day!
