I just started using Zola, followed the Getting Started guide, added some content, and then tried to add a theme.
I was quite surprised to see that no matter what theme I cloned into
themes and added to
config.toml, nothing changed.
I kicked off a new repo to debug, and did the theme first, checking through each step of the Getting Started guide. It worked! Right up until creating
which gives you a page that doesn’t import
site.css, and thus only has whatever CSS you manually add to your template (Bulma 0.8 in the case of the example).
How does one create a site that actually uses a theme?
I think the right thing to do here is:
- Configure the theme.
- Do not create a base.html.
- Do not create index.html.
- Instead, create
content/index.mdwith metadata inside
However, if I do that I don’t actually get main page content — the title shows up, but not the body.
This is a bit of a critical miss for a getting started guide: I’m flailing about in the dark. Can someone suggest what I’m doing wrong and update the Getting Started guide to save the next person?
