Sometimes I see code examples and themes that use
site.Params.heading instead of
.Site.Params.Heading when accessing Site parameters.
“site” seems benign, and will build locally when running
hugo. But when I deploy to Netlify “site” always breaks.
What is the purpose of site vs .Site - it seems to me .Site is always the correct choice?
site is a global function. It allows to access the site variables without a page context.
Pretty handy when needing site methods from within a partial to which no page context is available.
site was introduced in Hugo 52 or 53 so better make sure the version your Netlify instance is using has it.
I see, yeah I’m using 51 on Netlify. Thanks!
And I’m using 54 locally, bad idea!
