Technical directions on adding a blog post

To add a new blog/news/activity post, create a file in this directory, taking the existing files as examples.

Each post needs some specific parameters:

  • layout use post for a classical post look, or slides for md slides
  • title the title of your post
  • subtitle (optionnal) a subtitle. It will be adjuncted to your title in the post link and just under the title in the post page
  • location (optional) a location (especially for workshops, conferences, job openings, etc)
  • author the author of the post (you don't want to push yourself forward? Just write the ODK team or whatever you like)
  • date the date YYYY/MM/DD
  • redirect_from not needed for new posts, this is just the redirect link from old activities pages on the former site
  • tags a list of tag. The first tag is the type of activity (talk, blogpost, workshop, etc). The available tags are in the folder /_tagpages/ you can create news tags by adding a page there and then adding the tag to your post.
