Hugo Theme Foundation6 Blog

Link Code

node hugo gulp sass foundation

Personal Project

A simple Hugo theme based on the Foundation 6 blog (w/ sidebar) example, with scss & js gulp build scripts.


  • Responsive design.
  • Basic OpenGraph and Twitter Card metadata support.
  • robots.txt linking to XML sitemap (disabled by default, see Hugo docs).
  • Basic support for multi-lingual content (added in Hugo 0.17).
  • Supports Google, Bing, and Yandex site verification via meta tags.
  • Supports Google Analytics (async version), see Hugo docs.
  • Supports Disqus comments, see Hugo docs.
  • Can show a message about cookie usage to the user, see exampleSite/config.toml.
  • Allow addition of custom <head> code in site’s layouts/partial/head-custom.html (see #17).


Clone the repository to your site’s themes directory. Refer to exampleSite/config.toml for optional configuration values. A few suggestions to help you get a good looking site quickly:

  • Keep blog posts in the content/post directory, for example: content/post/
  • Keep static pages in the content directory, for example: content/
  • Keep media like images in the static directory, for example: static/2016/10/screenshot.png.
  • If you want an image to be shown when you share a post on social media, specify at least one image in the post’s front matter, for example: images: ["/2016/10/screenshot.png"].
  • Use the <!--more--> tag in posts to control how much of a post is shown on summary pages.
