Creating A Post


Posts Directory

If you want to start a blog, create a _posts directory to store your blog posts as per normal Jekyll usage, with layout: post.

Creating a Post

Create a new file in the _posts directory with the filename format where yyyy is the year, mm is the month and dd is the day.

In the front matter, use the layout: post. You can also use the same settings as when creating a page to configure the hero.

layout: post
title: The Blog Post Title
subtitle: The blog post subtitle
hero_image: /path/to/image.jpg
hero_darken: true

Blog Page

Next, create a blog directory with an index.html file that has layout: blog.


Set paginate and paginate_path in your site’s _config.yaml to configure the posts per page and blog pagination path.

paginate: 5
paginate_path: "/blog/page:num"

Other settings

It will display an image in the blog page if you set image: /path/to/image.jpg in your post’s or page’s front matter, or in the defaults in your site’s _config.yml.
