Reveal-hugo Theme rendering blank page


#1

Hi guys, so I’ve been using Hugo for the past few years for my personal site, but I’m trying to revamp the site with a new theme. So I made a new site with the reveal-hugo theme and followed the instructions on the reveal-hugo theme page: https://themes.gohugo.io/reveal-hugo/

I’ve followed the instructions exactly, but when I run the hugo server command, I get this:

Your rendered home page is blank: /index.html is zero length

  • Did you specify a theme on the command-line or in your “config.toml” file (Current theme: reveal-hugo)

I’m genuinely confused, any ideas?

Either of the above works.

However it’s difficult to say what’s going on without seeing the source of your project.

Yeah I’ve tried both, I understand its difficult to find the problem I was just hoping someone might have had a similar issue or know anything specific about this error.

I’ve just tried running again with a few more pages, and I’m getting this:

What is your Hugo version?

From the looks of those errors you must be using a very old version.


#6

It’s version 0.16-DEV


#7

You need to update your Hugo installation.
