I currently have a directory structure where I have a section “publications” with many pages. I am reading the publication data to list them on the home page, but I do not want separate per-publication pages to be rendered. Is there a way to do this cleanly? I would like to have something similar to the render attribute for Section. For example, I was able to prevent /publications section page from being rendered by setting render = false.
You could store the metadata in the section extra or use TOML/JSON file and use load_data instead. I don’t think there is a way to avoid rendering a page but still be able to load it from templates right now.
