Every _index.md file contains a title, language and slug.

config.toml

Copy config.toml from exampleSite to the root directory of your Hugo site and modify it according to your needs.

favicons

This theme contains default favicon with S letter. If you want to change it, create a directory static/assets/img inside the root of your Hugo site and put your favicon files there. They should have names: favicon.ico and apple-touch-icon.png.

Shortcodes

This theme includes additional shortcodes.

Adsense

Add Adsense configuration and use {{< adsense >}} in your post to display an ad.

Image

All images should be stored in content/images directory. Each subdirectory should contain _index.md file with this content:

---
title: Media Folder
---

Insert responsive image with title:

{{< image src="media/image-1.jpg" title="Photo by Ales Krivec on Unsplash" >}}

Full page width image:

{{< image src="media/image-1.jpg" title="Photo by Ales Krivec on Unsplash" full="true">}}

Lightbox:

{{< image src="media/image-1.jpg" lightbox="true" >}}

Insert image without resizing (the same image for all devices/resolutions).
