Create New Post

Reader is a multilingual template. So when you want to create a new post, you need to define the language. For example, creating a new post in the English language, the command is hugo new english/post/new-post.md and for French it’s hugo new french/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, author = author name, description = meta description, image = images/blog/blog-1.jpg, categories and tags.

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.
