Write New Page

To create a new page, run command:

pugo new page <title>

The new post file is created in source/page/<title>.md. For example:

pugo new page "this is a new page"

Result is source/page/this-is-a-new-post.md.


Front-Matter provides some details to describe your writting. Now it supports toml and writes as a code block in markdown.

title = "this is a new post"

The full items:

# post's title
title = "this is a new post"

# post's slug link, use to generate visitable link
# Optional, it uses relative path that based on [source/page]
slug = "this-is-a-new-post"

# post's creating date
date = "2016-02-05 15:00:00"

# post's updating date, optional. If not set ,use creating date
update_date = "2016-02-05 16:00:00"

# author's name. It finds the proper author by name in meta.toml
author = "pugo"

# language environment. Use correct i18n tool in this page
lang = "en"

# use specific template file
# Otherwise, use `page.html` as default
template = "page.html"

# hove class set global hover class to render this page,
# read following "Hover" section
hover = "hover"

# meta set extra data
# read following "Meta" section
data1 = "data1"
data2 = "data2" 

Front-Matter support ini format.


The post’s content is markdown format. So just write it after toml block.

# title

the post content



slug = "this-is-a-new-post"

slug is optional item. If you don’s set slug value, use relative path to create link.

For example, a page source/page/new/this-is-page.md without slug item. It will be built at http://{domain}/new/this-is-page.html.


hover = "hover" set global Hover var in template when rendering this page. So you can set hover status of navigation, such as :

{{if eq .Hover .Nav.Hover}}
    <a href="#">current link</a>


data1 = "data1"
data2 = "data2" 

You can add extra string data in a page (only support string value). So you can do some custom changes for page view. Such as :

    {{range $k,$v := .Page.Meta}}


All pages use template theme/default/page.html. If you need custom style, set template = "my_page.html" and modify my_page.html to display page data.
