Nederburg theme for hugo

Nederburg is a fast and secure theme.

This Hugo theme was ported from competethemes.



Go to the directory where you have your Hugo site and run:

$ mkdir themes
$ cd themes
$ git clone

For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo or use Appernetic.


After installing the Nederburg theme successfully, we recommend you to take a look at the exampleSite directory. You will find a working Hugo site configured with the Nederburg theme that you can use as a starting point for your site.

First, let's take a look at the config.toml. It will be useful to learn how to customize your site. Feel free to play around with the settings.


To have an image in your author bio shown after posts, go to Gravatar and configure it and then add the email address that you have associated with it in the email section in settings:

email = ""


Nederburg uses the minified production version of the style sheet from the wordpress version.

More style customizations?

Create css/custom.css in your <<base dir>>/static folder and add all your custom styling.


The optional comments system is powered by Disqus. If you want to enable comments, create an account in Disqus and write down your shortname.

disqusShortname = "your-disqus-short-name"

You can disable the comments system by leaving the disqusShortname empty.

Google Analytics

You can optionally enable Google Analytics. Type your tracking code in the ``.

googleAnalytics = "UA-XXXXX-X"

Leave the googleAnalytics key empty to disable it.

Make the contact form working

  1. Enter your email address under 'email' in the config.toml
  2. Upload the generated site to your server
  3. Send a dummy email yourself to confirm your account
