Basic Configuration

In this 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 config.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.
  • 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.

  • title is for your site’s title.
  • paginate - set the amount of posts shown on blogoverview pages. If you have more than this amount of posts a pagination will be shown to navigate to the next set of posts.
  • disqusShortname - add your disqus shortname to enable comments on the blog section.
