After installing the Identity 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. Play with already placed avatars and background images or use yours.
Make the contact form working
Since this page will be static, you can use formspree.io as proxy to send the actual email. Each month, visitors can send you up to one thousand emails without incurring extra charges. Begin the setup by following the steps below:
Enter your email address under ‘email’ in the config.toml
Enable form by setting enable to true in contact settings
Upload the generated site to your server
Send a dummy email yourself to confirm your account
In order to see your site in action, run Hugo’s built-in local server.
$ hugo server -w
Now enter localhost:1313 in the address bar of your browser.
To edit the css this theme uses, add your CSS to the assets folder then include it as part one of the [params] with the label custom_css. More information and an example can be found in the example config.toml file.
