This theme expects local resources. All additional files like images need to be placed in page bundles. Page resources from parent sections or taxonomies can be conveniently re-used.

Hugo’s possibilities

There are generally three options to store and retrieve resources (like images) for Hugo:

Page specific
We can save them in the folder of a page bundle and access them with a short relative path. We can register the resources in the front-matter of the corresponding Markdown file and add meta-data.
Site specific
We can save them in the assets folder and can use them for every page of our project. The favorite icon is a typical case.
Resources may also be retrieved via URL or API. This powerful feature has been introduced recently. No remote connectors ship with Perplex at the moment.
