Recently, I’ve switched one of my blog site from Wordpress to Hugo hosted on Netlify.
I ran into an issue where on my homepage, the list of posts were not showing up.
This is what it should look like:
After switching to Hugo, when testing on my localhost, it showed the posts fine.
After I deployed to Netlify with the build settings like below, it does not show any of my posts any more on the homepage.
After some digging I went to see the deploy log and noticed that the Hugo version on Netlify was outdated.
On my local the Hugo version is 0.58.0 and on Netlify it’s still at 0.54.0.
I needed to make sure Netlify uses the same Hugo version I’m using on my local.
To solve this issue, I added a
netlify.toml file in the root folder of the project. Where
.gitignore would sit.
netlify.toml, I specified the version for Netlify to use in this way:
[context.production.environment] HUGO_VERSION = "0.58.0"
Change the version number as needed.
My posts now show up on the homepage of my website: https://chanomthailand.com
