Even is a clean, responsive theme based on the Hugo theme with the same name featuring categories, tags and pagination.

First download this theme to your themes directory:

$ cd themes
$ git clone

and then enable it in your config.toml:

theme = "even"

The theme requires tags and categories taxonomies to be enabled in your config.toml:

taxonomies = [
    # You can enable/disable RSS
    {name = "categories", rss = true},
    {name = "tags", rss = true},

If you want to paginate taxonomies pages, you will need to overwrite the templates as it only works for non-paginated taxonomies by default.

It also requires to put the posts in the root of the content folder and to enable pagination, for example in content/

paginate_by = 5
sort_by = "date"



Set a field in extra with a key of even_menu:

# This is the default menu
even_menu = [
    {url = "$BASE_URL", name = "Home"},
    {url = "$BASE_URL/categories", name = "Categories"},
    {url = "$BASE_URL/tags", name = "Tags"},
    {url = "$BASE_URL/about", name = "About"},

If you put $BASE_URL in a url, it will automatically be replaced by the actual site URL.


The site title is shown on the header. As it might be different from the <title> element that the title field in the config represents, you can set the even_title instead.

KaTeX math formula support

This theme contains math formula support using KaTeX, which can be enabled by setting katex_enable = true in the extra section of config.toml:

katex_enable = true

After enabling this extension, the katex short code can be used in documents:

  • {{ katex(body="\KaTeX") }} to typeset a math formula inlined into a text, similar to $...$ in LaTeX
  • {% katex(block=true) %}\KaTeX{% end %} to typeset a block of math formulas, similar to $$...$$ in LaTeX

Automatic rendering without short codes

Optionally, \\( \KaTeX \\) inline and \\[ \KaTeX \\] / $$ \KaTeX $$ block-style automatic rendering is also supported, if enabled in the config:

katex_enable = true
katex_auto_render = true
You can’t perform that action at this time.
