Missing files or folders from repo, or lack of knowledge

Hi. I was working on my first site months ago. Had to stop a while for personal reasons.
Now I tried to clone my repository and start a local hugo server to continue developing, but it seems like several folders and files are missing.

I CAN run a local hugo server from my backup source (the same folder that I committed and pushed in the repository), but when I clone the site’s repository it doesn’t run.

What is very strange for me is that my site is working. How is this possible?


Admins, please, move this question post to it’s right section.

Hey @Tequemoflia

Are you able to share the repository you are working with?

Sorry to respond so late.

Accidentaly I found the correct answer. I did have a lack of understending.

There’s no problem with Netlify. The problem was in my git usage, now I know:

Is absolutely required to add “–recurse-submodules …” when cloning my repository to work with themes.

Tutorials I read didn’t tell this.

Pleas mark this topic as solved.

Thank you.

Thanks for coming back and letting us know ! Glad that you found the solution. Happy building!
