Adding content

News posts

Just do hugo new news/<name>.md to create the respective news entry. Each news entry has a news_archive property that lets the user look through previous news entries via archive. To create an archive, issue hugo new news-archive/<month>_<year>.md and modify the other settings. The most important one is the archive settings that lets HUGO associate the entries correctly.

Common problems

Due to HUGO's limitations, you cannot issue hugo new. The only way is to go to `content/support/commonproblems' and create a new entry manually (or just by copying and modifying an existing entry).

Other content

Not all content can be easily extended. All pages are based on markdown files in the content directory. There are two types of content:

  • "Dynamic" content
  • "Static" content

"Static" content is content that heavily interacts with its base template. For example the template will only insert most of the content by itself and only take the content of the markdown file for some description.

"Dynamic" content will be created completely by the markdown file and is indicated by type = "<anything>-post"


The homepage was designed to support translation. To translate the homepage, create a fork and edit the current language in config.toml. Also don't forget to modify the list of available languages and send your modifications upstream. Unfortunately there's no better way to create translations using HUGO.

All content was created to allow translation without skimming though the HTML templates. Just translate the entries in config.toml and all files in content.
