I’m posting this following opening an issue for the
Using both raw hugo and blogdown, I’ve noticed that creating a directory called
partials within the
/layouts directory of a site (i.e., to overwrite partials from
hugo-academic), even if that
partials directory is empty, will cause
hugo-academic to stop creating
styles.css in the
public folder. Running
hugo on the directory does not give any errors.
Puzzlingly, this problem seems to persist even after deleting the
layouts/partials directory. I’ve replicated this multiple times on my system over the past two days.
Does this behavior replicate on anyone else’s system, or with other themes? This happens using both the latest release of
hugo-academic (v2.4.0), as well as the latest commit on the
master branch (74a9bb3).
I would be grateful for any advice about why
hugo is behaving this way.
