How to add a blog post
- Create a new folder in
src/blog. The name of the folder is going to be the slug of the page.
- Create a file named
index.mdinside of this folder. Use markdown to format the post.
Possible frontmatter variables
To add some variables to the post like the date or a SEO description use the following format at the very top of the markdown file:
--- title: 'Title of the blog post' date: '2015-05-28T22:40:32.169Z' description: 'This is a custom description for SEO and Open Graph purposes, rather than the default generated excerpt. Simply add a description field to the frontmatter.' featuredImage: './featured-image.jpg' --- Content of the blog post goes here...
Add images to the blog post
If you want to add a image simply put it in the same folder like
index.md file and link it in your blog post:
To add a featured image add the
featuredImage variable to the frontmatter.
Note: the featured image should be 1024px wide. It's displayed with 1024px so save space by scaling it down if necessary.
