If you’re reading this, this post was created with Netlify CMS, an open source content management solution, kind of like SquareSpace, Blogger, or Wordpress. I’d figured it be a nice touch to add to the site, and to just see how it worked.
The interface provides a way to upload a file, add them to the git repo, and then (what I thought) redeploy the site.
What I’m finding is that the Markdown syntax circumvents the Hugo shortcode system, so I’m unable to use Netlify’s convenient syntax to transform images
?nf_resize=fit&w=1920. The first image was using the traditional Markdown syntax, and the second one was using Hugo shortcodes. I use Netlify’s Large Media soltuion to upload images to scale them down to a more or less reasonable size for the web, so I’m not sure if it’s a bug in Netlify’s CMS, or a bug in Hugo’s shortcode system. Either way, it’s an annoying quirk that I’m going to have to live with.
You live and learn, right?
