Basics Plus

A minimal theme for those who like to keep it simple. Makes use of bootstrap.

Based on the Elephants theme. Forked from Basics.

Features

  • Responsive theme
  • High contrast
  • Focus on content and readability

Installation

From your hugo site, run:

git submodule add https://github.com/CrowderSoup/basics-plus.git

Writing Posts

Posts that should show up in the home page must be inside contents/post. Or you can change this behavior by tweaking themes/basics/layouts/_default/list.html.

You should also add an about page at contents/about.md.

Your directory should look something like this:

├── archetypes
│   └── default.md
├── config.toml
├── content
│   ├── about.md
│   └── post
│       ├── my-first-post.md
│       └── my-second-post.md
├── data
├── layouts
├── static
│   └── images
└── themes
    └── basics

Configurations

Add author name

Add author name to the .Site.Params.author parameter in your config.toml file.

See below for an example:

baseURL = ""
languageCode = "en-us"
title = "Basics Theme Demo"
theme = "basics"

[params]
    author = "Author Name"

Add Links to GitHub and GitLab

Add GitHub and GitLab usernames to .Site.Params.github and .Site.Params.gitlab parameters in your config.toml file. Links to these accounts would show up in the top navigation bar. If these parameters are not present or is left blank, the links would disappear.

See below for an example:

baseURL = ""
languageCode = "en-us"
title = "Basics Theme Demo"
theme = "basics"

[params]
    author = "Author Name"
    github = "username1"
    gitlab = "username2"
