General options

How can I position sections, add backgrounds, and personalize the layout?

Check out the Page Building guide.

Block-specific options

Edit the front matter of a section to configure the view and other options, such as the folders to display content from, shown below:

title: My page
type: landing

  - block: collection
    id: posts
      title: Recent Posts
      subtitle: ''
      text: 'Check out my recent blog posts below!'
      # Choose how many pages you would like to display (0 = all pages)
      count: 5
      # Filter on criteria
        # The folders to display content from
          - post
        author: ""
        category: ""
        tag: ""
        publication_type: ""
        featured_only: false
        exclude_featured: false
        exclude_future: false
        exclude_past: false
      # Choose how many pages you would like to offset by
      # Useful if you wish to show the first item in the Featured widget
      offset: 0
      # Field to sort by, such as Date or Title
      sort_by: 'Date'
      sort_ascending: false
      # Choose a listing view
      view: compact
      # Choose single or dual column layout
      columns: '1'

Custom sorting

Hugo requires page parameters which are not built-in to Hugo to be prefixed with Params. when accessing them.

Hugo’s built-in parameters include the page’s Title and Date published - you can find the full list in Hugo’s documentation on page variables. They can be referenced directly in the sort by option, for example, to sort by a page title: sort_by: 'Title' .

Therefore, if you wish to sort by a non-Hugo parameter, such as an event’s date, set the sort by option to sort_by: 'Params.time_start' .

The See All link appears when you have more content than specified in the count option above. For example, if you choose to show only 5 blog posts but you have 100 blog posts in your archive at post/, a See All link will appear.

You can hide/show the link, change the text, or change the link itself by setting the archive options in your widget front matter:

    enable: true
    text: See all blog posts
    link: post/


There are multiple sections in the Academic Resume template that use the Pages widget. These include the Blog Posts, Publications, and Events/Talks sections.
