Create a post!
There are two ways to create a post. The easiest is email the content of your post and I will format it and post it for you. Or you can create a post by submitting a pull request to the site. Below are some of the Jekyll specifics.
Creating posts is very easy with Jekyll. There are many tutorials, but, at
their core, a post is a markdown file in the
First, create a markdown file in posts with the format
Add a header to the file in the format
--- layout: post title: TODO_ADD_TITLE date: TODO_ADD_DATE author: TODO_ADD_NAME categories: main ---
Update the title to be the title, date, and author for your entry. The year
should be formatted as
YYYY-MM-DD. You do not need to make any changes to the
layout or the categories. For example, the header for this post could be:
--- layout: post title: "Create a post!" date: 2018-05-29 author: David L. Millman categories: main ---
Next fill in your content in markdown. Markdown is a simple text format created by John Gruber. It is like latex but much simpler. For more on markdown see the darning fireball website.
