I recently migrated from wordpress to Hugo, and I am very happy with the results. I have a very basic website with my papers in pdf format (I’m an academic). When generating the site, for every pdf file Hugo creates a folder with the name of the pdf and and a file “index.pdf” in it. What am I doing wrong?
Try to put
uglyurls = true
In your config. But in your case I would consider putting the pdfs into /static until this bug (see below) is fixed.
Not sure who decided what was pretty and not. As to why this is happening for PDF files I would say is an obvious bug.
Nice if you could put register a bug at https://github.com/spf13/hugo
Can you provide an example path to one of the pdf files (before and after) in the bug report you file?
The uglyurls did it, thanks. I was already putting the pdfs into /static.
Should I still file a bug report, even if the uglyurls flag solved my problem?
Wait, actually that didn’t work at all. It replaced to pdfs with 2kb files.
