Using LoveIT Theme, I Cannot Get Categories to Work / same with search

I’m new to hugo. I’m using the loveIt theme. I cannot seem to get Categories to work. When yo click the link in the nav menu, you get the list of directories, then when you click the directory, you have a blank page, no posts showing.

see here:

The same for search. I’m trying to use Lunr.js as search as I don’t have to keep rebuilding the index or whatever. I configured my config, but it’s not replicating to the site nor local host.

I posted it as a bug for the theme, but I’ve not gotten a response. I’m sure I missed something configuring. Can someone please take a look. I’d greatly appreciate it.
