Setup is not complete, it turns out. I had been using the preview server to view my changes and everything looked fine as in my last post. But when I went to deploy the content over to the live server, I could not get the deployment to work. Most of the styling was missing and the site looked like a brutal minimalist site.
I spent an entire afternoon working on it with Github, Gitlab and Netlify, but with no success. Then I opened index.html in my browser and it was the same. I threw my hands in the air and gave up.
Back to Hugo. At least I can deploy it. Now to find a theme that implements search, comments, and taxonomies.
