After installing the theme successfully it requires a just a few more steps to get your site running.
The config file
Take a look inside the exampleSite folder of this theme. You’ll find a file called config.toml. To use it, copy the config.toml in the root folder of your Hugo site. Feel free to change the strings in this theme.
EXIF info display can be disabled by setting no_exif = true in the config
All photos are stored in the photo folder under the content folder. You can put multiple directories under it and the theme will enumerate all photos within in order of the directory listing. Within each subfolder, e.g. 1-trip1, you can put all relevant photos in it and then copy over the index.md file.
Within index.md file, you can specify each photo’s name, description and other properties. Take a look at the descriptions to understand what can be customized.
To add a video, simply put its thumbnail in the same way as a regular photo and
specify video_embed_link (refer to index.md, which should be the URL in the src attribute of an embedded iframe provided by
video-sharing sites such as YouTube.
A video icon will appear on the thumbnail in the gallery view and expanding it will reveal the embedded video
In order to see your site in action, run Hugo’s built-in local server.
$ hugo server
Now enter localhost:1313 in the address bar of your browser.
