Mainroad is a responsive, simple, clean and content-focused Hugo theme based on the MH Magazine lite WordPress theme by MH Themes.

Alternate Demo (Best) | Standart Demo


Adaptation has several changes:

  • Include Hugo internal templates (Open Graph, Disqus, Google Analytics)
  • New responsive menu without jQuery
  • SVG icons instead of font icons
  • Theme options are saved (Sidebar position, Author Box, Post Navigation) and available through config.toml file parameters
  • Other small changes


In your Hugo site themes directory, run:

$ git clone

Next, open config.toml in the base of the Hugo site and ensure the theme option is set to mainroad:

theme = "mainroad"

For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo.


Example config.toml

baseurl = "/"
title = "Mainroad"
languageCode = "en-us"
paginate = "10" # Number of posts per page
theme = "mainroad"
disqusShortname = "" # Enable comments by entering your Disqus shortname
googleAnalytics = "" # Enable Google Analytics by entering your tracking id

    name = "John Doe"
    bio = "John Doe's true identity is unknown. Maybe he is a successful blogger or writer. Nobody knows it."
    avatar = "img/avatar.png"

    subtitle = "Just another site" # Subtitle of your site
    description = " John Doe's Personal blog about everything" # Description of your site
    opengraph = true
    leftsidebar = false # Move sidebar to the left side if true
    authorbox = true
    post_navigation = true
