Editing the lab website

Below, we explain how to edit the lab webpage

Add posts

It's very easy to add post. All the posts are located in _posts folder. It arrangement is based on date. Each post can be written in markdown format. You just have to state headers before writing: title, description and categories. description will be shown when you share on social media like Facebook or twitter. See the following headers:

title: Summer School in Computational Sensory-Motor Neuroscience (CoSMo)
description: all links to CoSMo summer school in computational neuroscience materials
categories: scientists

We have 4 categories: scientists, students, discussion, blog you can choose and this will be rendered to different location.

How to add posts

  • Directly edit on Github, you can simply go to _posts and click New file then put some markdown file e.g. and start writing blog post. Github also allows you to preview it so it's nice for people who don't want to clone the repo.

  • Clone the repository, kind of the same as directly add post on Github. You just have to clone the repository. Then add new post file, commit and push to the repo.

The changes will take approximately half a minute to render. You can see the new posts or changes on!

Add yourself

You can add yourself to the page in _people folder just create file name <firstname>_<lastname>.md in the folder. We require few line of header before you start writing your own page. See the following for the header

name: Eva Dyer
position: postdoc
avatar: eva.jpg

If you don't have information, just leave it blank. The avatar will bring photo from images/people folder and display it on people page. For lab position, you can choose position from 4 classes including postdoc, gradstudent, visiting, others (so called Honorary members). Position will put you into section that you choose.
