Submodule not updating

I decided to create two separate repos, one for Hugo’s content, and a git submodule with the public folder’s content in it. Just like outlined at Everything worked fine when I ran the first time. Since then whenever I write a new blog post it will display perfectly locally but won’t push to my GitHub repo that serves it.

Do I need to start at step 5 every time I write a new blog post? I thought all I needed to do was be in my Hugo project folder and run

Thanks for the help.

I’m having the same issue. Did you figure it out?
