This article will describe a number of common causes for Copper issues, and how to resolve them yourself.

Common causes for errors:

Incorrect/invalid API key

  • The API key copied in to your Hugo account needs to be an exact copy of a valid API key from your Copper account.
  • Visit Copper > Settings > API Keys to generate a valid key
  • Paste that key to your Copper credentials in Hugo.

Incorrect/invalid email address:

  • The email address copied in to your Hugo account, to accompany your API key, must match the email address used for your Copper account.
  • Paste that email to your Copper credentials in Hugo.

Copper FAQ:

If I update a Hugo note after it has been saved, will my Copper note update?

  • Hugo will not edit any notes in your Copper account after they have been sent.
  • Therefore notes that are created by Hugo will remain unchanged in Copper, even if you edit the note in Hugo afterwards.

If I delete a Hugo note, what happens to the note sent to Copper?

  • Hugo will not delete any data from your Copper account, it will only send notes to Copper from your Hugo notes.
  • Therefore notes will remain in Copper even if the note that created them has been deleted from Hugo.
