Basic Configuration

In the root folder you will find a file called config.toml open this file in any text editor or IDE.

If your theme is not launched in your localhost, then check the theme name is correct in configure.toml file. Then run hugo server command again.

Sitewide configuration

  • At the very top you will see a baseURL field for your site URL. Add your sites URL here.
  • languageCode - define your global site language. This setting is independent from the i18n-setup you might add later on.
  • title is for your site’s title.
  • theme sets up the used theme. If your theme is located in /themes/themename then the value for this parameter is themename.

    If you use theme components you can change this parameter to the following format:

    themes = ["theme1", "theme2", "themename"]
    

    Make sure, that your theme is the last item in this list. Hugo will load these themes and module from the left and files with identical names will be overwritten subsequently.

Plugins

You can add third party plugins from here. We created a loop for plugins. You will see two plugins loop already implemented. The first one is for css and second one is for js. Copy a loop item that you need and paste it in the bottom of the loop. After you added a plugin, you need to restart the hugo server to render properly.
