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

Common causes for errors:

Invalid API or revoked API access

  • When connecting GitHub and Hugo, unique credentials allow Hugo to request/send data to/from your GitHub account. Sometimes these credentials can become invalidated. To resolve, visit Hugo > Settings > Apps > GitHub, click Disable GitHub and then re-enable.

GitHub FAQ:

Why are repo results slow to load?

  • If your GitHub account contains a lot of code repositories, this can slow down the speed of returning repo results.

If I delete a Hugo note, what happens to the GitHub issues I created from that note?

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