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.

Hugo Future Imperfect Slim
