Symbolic link error shown but link as root folder is followed and works #1855
In Windows 7 x64, created symlink content in Hugo source folder to content_src which contained content to be generated.
Hugo throws error on build: 'Symbolic links not supported'. However the content from content_src is generated as normal (so in this case, symobilic links work).
Solution: remove error when symbolic link is a root folder, leave it as-is for all other cas

I was pretty carefult in testing. I put the word symlink in the content of a content_src folder, and then created a symlink content to that folder. This was built by Hugo, with the error shown, and with the content generated.
Unless Hugo took the content from content_src ? Is this possible? Using the word 'content' in this folder name was probably not the best idea.
I'll test again with the content_src with a different name and location.
