Content Organization

This site uses Hugo. In Hugo, content organization is a core concept.

Hugo Tip: Start Hugo with hugo server --navigateToChanged for content edit-sessions.

Page Lists

Page Order

The documentation side menu, the documentation page browser etc. are listed using Hugo’s default sort order, which sorts by weight (from 1), date (newest first) and finally by the link title.

Given that, if you want to move a page or a section up, set a weight in the page’s front matter:

title: My Page
weight: 10
For page weights, it can be smart not to use 1, 2, 3 …, but some other interval, say 10, 20, 30… This allows you to insert pages where you want later.

Documentation Main Menu

The Documentation main menu is built from the sections below docs/ with the main_menu flag set in front matter of the section content file:

main_menu: true

Note that the link title is fetched from the page’s linkTitle, so if you want it to be something different than the title, change it in the content file:

main_menu: true
title: Page Title
linkTitle: Title used in links
The above needs to be done per language. If you don’t see your section in the menu, it is probably because it is not identified as a section by Hugo. Create a content file in the section folder.

Documentation Side Menu

The documentation side-bar menu is built from the current section tree starting below docs/.

It will show all sections and their pages.

If you want a section or page to not be listed, set the toc_hide flag in front matter:

toc_hide: true

When you navigate to a section, the page shown is the section page (e.g. if it has content, else the first page inside that section.

Documentation Browser

The page browser on the documentation home page is built from all sections and pages directly below the docs section.

If you want a section or page to not be listed, set the toc_hide flag in front matter:

toc_hide: true

The Main Menu

The site links in the top-right menu – and also in the footer – are built by page-lookups. This is to make sure that the page actually exists. So, if the case-studies section does not exist in a site (language), it will not be linked to.

Page Bundles

In addition to standalone content pages (Markdown files), Hugo supports Page Bundles.

One example is Custom Hugo Shortcodes. It is a socalled leaf bundle. Everything below the directory with the will be part of the bundle, with page-relative links, images can be processed etc.:

└── podtemplate.json

Another example used widely is the includes bundle. It has headless: true set in front matter, which means that it does not get its own URL. It is only used in other pages.

├── partner-script.js
├── partner-style.css

Some important notes to the files in the bundles:


The SASS source of the stylesheets for this site is stored below src/sass and can be built with make sass (note that Hugo will get SASS support soon, see
