Configuration

In your sites root folder you will find a file called config.toml. Open this file with your text editor or IDE.

The icons used for social media links are based on the Iconicon Icon Font. You can find a large selection of icons on their website. Just copy the icon name and add as icon parameter.

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.

  • [[menu.main]] is the main menu loop, you can add your navigation item by copy and pasting this line.
  • name attribute is for navigation item name.
  • URL is for the page url, just give the page name here, it will automatically add the base URL from your site. like if you want to give the about page url here, just type about .
  • weight is for your navigation sorting, the smaller number weight will show first.

Parameter Configuration

Most parameters in the [params] section of your configuration are commented. You can change the basic setup of the theme and add information or enable/disable features.
