A Hugo Update Everyone Should Be Talking About
For Hugo users a few great updates came out recently with a long-awaited feature: nested sections. Along with nested sections, Hugo 0.22-0.24 added a series of improvements that make building websites even easier.
Nested Sections, What’s The Big Deal? If you’re not familiar with Hugo, sections are the different types of content your Hugo site has. For example Posts, Pages, and Press Releases.
Until Hugo 0.22, nesting sections weren’t supported as a feature, meaning you couldn’t easily have a hierarchical relationship between different types of content.
