Command line

To create a blog/news article:

hugo new  --kind post post/my-article-name

Then edit the newly created file content/post/ with your full title and content.

Hugo will automatically generate summaries of posts that appear on the homepage. If you are dissatisfied with an automated summary, you can either limit the summary length by appropriately placing <!--more--> in the article body, or completely override the automated summary by adding a summary parameter to the front matter, for example:

title: my blog post
date: 2021-01-01
summary: A summary of my post for previews and search engines.
