My Hugo site had been running fine for awhile till a recent upgrade and then Hugo 0.55 began complaining about some things that have been deprecated.
I solved all of them but one
WARN 2019/04/27 21:02:17 Page’s .URL is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Use .Permalink or .RelPermalink. If what you want is the front matter URL value, use .Params.url.
I’m using .URL in two layout/partial files and don’t understand what I should do about this.
In my menu I’m using .URL and according to the error message I should be able to change it to .Params.url. Well this change goes from warnings to fatal errors like this:
execute of template failed: template: partials/menu.html:4:34: executing “partials/menu.html” at <.Params.url>: can’t evaluate field Params in type *navigation.MenuEntry
Permalink and RelPermalink also caused failures.
After checking the source of the generated html I see that the .URL was generating relative links. Which makes me think I want either .Params.url or RelPermalink.
Since I can’t make either seem to work for me the way I want them to, I don’t understand what to do about the deprecation of what works.
