Output of hugo env:

Hugo Static Site Generator v0.51 darwin/amd64 BuildDate: 2018-11-07T10:09:45Z

Steps to reproduce:

  1. hugo new site yaml-site --format "yaml"
  2. cd yaml-site
  3. hugo new && hugo new && hugo new
  4. hugo convert toTOML

The output of hugo convert toTOML says:

Error: Unsafe operation not allowed, use --unsafe or set a different output path

So I tried: hugo convert toTOML --unsafe, and got output:

processing 3 content files

But when inspecting the front matter of content files, they are still in YAML.

I had to scratch my head a little about this one. The test case above isn't all that realistic -- the reason why the above fails, is that all the newly created pages are drafts. It should work, of course, but I don't think it ever worked. If you edit the pages and remove the draft flag, everything works smoother.
