tldr : How do I remove /post/ from url but keep
/<directory>/<Filename> in URL
I created a hugo-netlify-forestry setup for my mother for her blog. She is writing her posts into a related folders
/content/post --/Handloom/ -- katha.md -- bandha.md --/History/Forts/ -- agra-fort.md --/History/Coins/ -- Mughal-coins.md
The url generated is
missing-dots.in/post/Handlooms/katha She wants to remove the /post/ part of the URL so that final url would read
I tried using permalink in config, Since there is no :folder attribute, I tried using /:sections/:title but :sections includes the /post/ also. I deleted _index.md from the post folder and added _index.md in each folder but still that portion is not removed. I did that because docs said that folders with _index.md would be treated as a section by hugo. So I hoped that now hugo will not treat /post/ as section and only add the subsequent folders, But still the URL generated contains
Forestry does not have a section to set url in front-matter, therefore currently when she uploads a post, I have to manually git pull it, add URL slug in the post, and push it. Is there a better way via config to do this. Is there a way to add :dir-path to the accepted attributes in permalinks?
