README.md

Rocktopus is a re-work of my previous theme. The goal was to clean it up a bit and add in some of the newer Hugo features. This theme uses the Skeleton CSS framework

Features

  • Lightweight. All CSS and no javascript
  • Choice of light or dark color scheme
  • Configurable menu
  • Supports tags
  • Supports Hugo pagination
  • Supports Hugo Google Analytics template
  • Has an amazing name

Configuration

The sample config file is pretty well documented and explains what setting does what but here are some key points:

  • The [menu] section looks best with three entries (in my opinion).
  • The blogHeader param supports HTML.
  • The theme provides a content type of contact that will create a simple contact page for your based on the values you put in the config file. Just create a new file under your content and add type="contact" to the frontmatter, no need to put any actual content in it.
  • There are some sample images that come with the theme for the header section but you’ll probably want to set your own, just put it into your static/img directory update the filename in your config.
