I am struggling with setting up CF Pages’ preview environment that would have proper
baseUrl. I use
develop branch so I have fixed environment alias. However all links in generated page are based on my production
baseUrl which is provided in configuration. Hugo can serve development instance locally and handle URLs even though
baseUrl is set, so it should be possible also on CF Pages.
I’ve tried to use
-b flag in Pages’ build command, but it does not work and even if it did, it would impact production builds most probably, so it can’t be used.
Is it possible to change
baseUrl for preview environment only?
CF_PAGES_URL variable to tell your build tools what URL Pages will be serving your site on.
I’ve added this env variable few minutes ago and retried deployment. I see proper
CF_PAGES_URL in build config (in deployment details), but later in build log I see that
baseUrl from my config is used and links are still invalid. FYI: I don’t use global
baseUrl but per-language config, does it matter? Or maybe I should trigger new preview build with new commit instead of retrying previous build?
I was able to override
baseURL by using
HUGO_LANGUAGES_pl_baseurl env variable set in CF Pages’ “Environment variables” settings section. Now all links in preview environment point to this specific environment so site is navigable
