_config.yml file located in the root directory of the theme.
Correctly define the title* Important *
Typography has three titles:
title is defined in the
_config.yml inside the Hexo blog's root directory while the
title_secondary are defined in Typography's
<title>of all the HTML pages.
title_primary: The bigger title to display on nav/side bar.
title_secondary: The smaller title to display on nav/side bar.

.yml files in
themes/typography/languages or add new files according to your need.
It is possible to control the length for all the summaries on the index page by setting a value for
truncate_len. The default length is 160.

The comment box is a place for readers to exchange their ideas with the author. Typography has integrated two 3rd-party comment services, and they are ready to use at any time.

title: Another post date: 1970-01-01 00:00 desc: Description to be inserted into the metadata of the post page. ---
Then the generated HTML file will contain:
<meta name="description" content="Description to be inserted into the metadata of the post page.">

Icons for social network accounts
Typography natively supports the following social network accounts:

twitter: user_name weibo: user_id/permanent_name instagram: user_name github: user_name

Please edit scss files instead of css files. We recommend you to run
npm run watch(or
yarn run watch) to watch changes on scss files. But plesae be noted that
npm run watchdoes not provide auto-prefixing support on compiled css files. Running
npm run build(or
yarn run build), which has support for CSS compressing and auto-prefixing, after you have done your modifications and before deploying your blog is recommended.
scss-compile to generate
.css files for styling. We have provided several options such as background and foreground colors for you to choose. When your editing is finished, do not forget to run the commands below to re-generate the
cd themes/typography npm run build yarn run build # for yarn users
.scssfiles are located in
As for the jade templates inside
theme/typography/layout, just edit them and remember to add some pepper as you like it.
