Version 1.1.0 - May 18, 2020

With this version, the theme has fully implemented static search using lunr.js. That being said, a few modifications were necessary to implement this feature.

To utilize this, or future version of Hugo Future Imperfect Slim, please make the following changes:

  1. Add the following to your config.toml before [params]:
disableLanguages = [""]

    home = ["html", "json"]

  1. Remove the underscore from all about and contact page file names: -->

  2. Add layout = "about" or layout = "contact" to all of the files you just just adjusted the file names for.

While I realize this is inconvenient, I hope that it is worth it to you in the long run. Thanks for using the theme, and feel free to submit issues as needed.

I am currently a Senior at Kennesaw State University studying Music Education. I’m drawn to music, education, technology, and all things Walt Disney (especially Walt Disney World), so you will find that much of the blog here will consist of content relating to these, in addition to some eclectic sprinklings throughout.
