What's Changed

Check out the demos of the updated starter templates or Discord Announcement channel for more visual examples of these incredible improvements đŸĻ„

The starter templates have all been updated for this shiny new release of the Wowchemy website building framework for Hugo: https://github.com/wowchemy/wowchemy-hugo-themes/tree/v5.5.0/starters

  • New Slider widget can be used for full screen image swiping (similar to popular apps)
  • Ability to choose both day and night themes, and to be able to choose them from different theme packs
    • Note: Bootstrap currently has a limitation on primary color, discussed here
  • Ability to create and share your own personalized listing views
    • Third party, community views can be added to the new community folder, such as by creating a file at layouts/partials/views/community/MY_VIEW.html and referencing it in a page's front matter as view: community/MY_VIEW where MY_VIEW is a unique name for your view
  • Add math shortcode - no longer any need to escape Markdown symbols that occur within math in the body of pages
  • Apply custom sorting to items in the Pages and Portfolio widgets
    • with content.sort_by (e.g. Date or Title) and content.sort_ascending (e.g. true or false)
  • Add content to the Pages widget based on folders (rather than page type)
  • Add content to the Portfolio widget based on folders (rather than page type) or tags
  • Faster page loading by reducing image sizes via WEBP conversion
    • Can reduce image sizes by > 5x on a typical site that previously output JPGs and PNGs
  • The popular showcase view (large images) that was exclusive to the Portfolio widget can now be used universally, such as in the Pages widget
  • Show name pronunciation in the About widgets (see #2489)
    • Example: add name_pronunciation: Zhang San to content/authors/admin/_index.md
  • Breadcrumb navigation supported on all pages (not just book/docs pages)
    • With show_breadcrumb: true in front matter
  • Set the navbar to disappear on scroll (to provide more vertical screen space for reading)
    • in page front matter or via Hugo cascades, set header.on_scroll to disappear or fixed
  • Simpler, more intuitive site configuration in params.yaml
  • Ability to hide the navbar (and just use breadcrumb navigation, for example)
  • Migrate to Hugo's v0.86 cascade system for setting page collection options
  • Automatic detection of Mermaid diagrams in pages (no longer need to set diagram: true to front matter)
  • Ability to have multiple contact widgets
    • Move contact params from params.yaml to contact widget
    • SEO contact details (phone, address, coords) now under params.yaml > marketing > seo
    • Example
  • To make contribution even easier, all the starter templates have moved to https://github.com/wowchemy/wowchemy-hugo-themes/tree/main/starters
    • any changes will continue to be copied to their dedicated repositories
