We’re observing a weird situation today with our hugo builds.
We copied an existing markdown file from our site, into a copy with a new filename (file is in the same directory, has identical frontmatter, etc), and changed content - including the title in the front matter. So, we expected a new html file to appear in /public when we ran
hugo, but instead, the markdown file itself appeared in the appropriate place in the file hierarchy in public and no html file was generated. We cleared /public several times and the behavior recurred when we re-ran hugo.
We’re using hugo .51 on osx, but the same problem was observed on Netlify (ubuntu 14.04) with hugo v .0.37.1 as well as v 0.51. We don’t use the extended version that handles SCSS and the like.
hugo -v during the build does not say anything special about the file.
It’s the second file in this PR, in case you want to check it out:
As you can see, it’s pretty basic and the frontmatter was ripped off from a file that works well and is in the same directory (the other file that was modified, and whose changes did get built into /public as expected).
Just to save you a tri pto github, this is the front matter for the file:
--- title: "Shift and Zoobomb history" date: 2017-11-20T20:20:00-08:00 draft: false weight: ---
Never seen this behavior before but betting someone else has, so I come to you for advice, gurus.
