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:

categories: everyone

We have 4 categories: everyone, researchers, 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 in the format 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 the Team Schwessinger lab page!
