Interesting things that changed

As I review the site, I am seeing a few things that no longer work as they did in the past. I am not surprised though as the hugo engine has had a significant number of updates and the theme has been updated as well. Some configuration items are no longer valid, there are new ones to learn about, and the theme has had a number of revisions.

One thing in particular is that if you visit the main page, you get a page on a jupyter talk from 2016 instead of a list of posts. I do not know why yet, but will attempt to get it fixed. I love mysteries! I do not love things that change for what appear to be arbitrary reasons.

UPDATE: I figured it out…

In the past, it appears that the main directory to index for the front page was the name of the directory, in this case posts which have a Type associated with them of post. Apparently that changed somewhere along the way and Type = "posts" no longer works. Changing the site parameter to Type = "post" fixed the issue. I guess I could now tag anything with that type and it would end up in the indexed main page.

The home page presentation issue is solved. Now to find out what else no longer renders as expected.
