Altering the module content.

Modules descriptions are rendered from markdown files (here is a useful markdown cheatsheet) located in the _modules folder. The module markdown files are plain markdown file. However, the top of each file contains some YAML data helping to render the content on the website. This YAML lines set the page layout, the title to render, and the icon picture to use on the page.

Here's an example:

layout: page
title: "Open Access to Research Papers"
icon: "icons/paper.html"
order: 6

How to add a person to be listed/rendered on the website

Currently adding a person involves adding a YAML file in the _data/people folder. Perhaps the easiest thing to do is to copy an existing file, e.g.
chris_madan.yml. In this file, the data is used to define a member profile.

The contact item currently supports:

  • email
  • github
  • impactstory
  • linkedin
  • orcid
  • twitter
  • website

Depending on which team you're in, you can use the following value for the team item:

  • advisors
  • production
  • steering-committee
  • code-of-conduct-committee

Here's an example:

name: Christopher Madan
location: UK
  github: cMadan
  impactstory: 0000-0003-3228-6501
  linkedin: cmadan
  orcid: 0000-0003-3228-6501
  twitter: cMadan
team: steering-committee

If you want to add a picture of you, you simply need to add an image in the folder assets/img/people.

The image should be in a JPG format and have the same name as your YAML file in _people (e.g chris_madan.yml -> chris_madan.jpg).
