Hugo Theme Not Deploying

June 13, 2018
Hugo Firebase

When first deploying my hugo site to firebase, the theme wasn’t showing up even though it worked perfectly locally.

Turns out the issue is that you need to update the baseURL property in your config.toml file to reflect your deployed baseURL.

I was hesitant to just hardcode it to my deployed instance url at first because I thought that might screw it up on localhost, but apparently when running ‘hugo server’ to spin up the localhost, it just ignores it, so all is well.
