When I try to create a new file:

hugo new kontakt/

I get the error:

Error: Failed to process archetype file "/Users/svennebanan/Documents/ABCLillaBegravningsbyrån/appernetic-hugo-project/themes/hugo-smorg/archetypes/": template: default:2:19: executing "default" at <.Name>: can't evaluate field Name in type create.ArchetypeFileData

If I change hugo-smorg/archetypes/

title: "{{ replace .Name "-" " " | title }}"


title: "{{ replace .TranslationBaseName "-" " " | title }}"

it works.

I haven't investigated it further, I'm happy I got it working for now. I am using Hugo v0.34

Realy nice theme by the way.

I have put all my customizations and bugfixes in the layout folder and archetypes folder overriding the theme. So no PR yet.

Thanks for the feedback on this issue and the kind words. I have to admit I have not looked very closely at the internationalization features Hugo offered but am willing to do so.

I'll put some conditional logic into the archetype so failures like that will not occur.

Fixed using TranslationBaseName per your note. At one point .Name must have been exposed in some version by Hugo as I've not run into this before but as .Name isn't documented the change is definitely needed. Thanks! Closes #6
