Create New Post

when you want to create a new post, the command is hugo new post/new-post.md.

Configure Post

You can configure your blog post from the front-matter. Front-matter starts with --- and end with also --- . In this front matter you can give title, description = meta description, image = images/post/post-2.jpg, and categories.

When you created a new post, the draft default value is true, which means it’s not published yet. Make it false to publish the post, ex: draft = false. After closing the front matter, give your post content.

Remember that every file that has a .md extension supports markdown.

Example Front-Matter

title: "Top 20+ Best Hugo Business Themes for 2020"
date: 2020-01-12T12:14:34+06:00
image: "images/post/post-2.jpg"

categories: ["video"]
