Post page preview


To run the theme locally, navigate to the theme directory and run bundle install to install the dependencies, then run jekyll serve or bundle exec jekyll serve to start the Jekyll server.

I would recommend checking the Deployment Methods page on Jekyll website.


To create a new post, you can create a new markdown file inside the _posts directory by following the recommended file structure.

  layout: post
  title: Premiere on Broadway
  date: 2018-08-23 16:04:00 +0300
  image: 03.jpg
  tags: [Rest]

You can set the tags and the post image.

Add post images to /img/ directory.

For tags, try to not add space between two words, for example, Ruby on Rails, could be something like (ruby-on-rails, Ruby_on_Rails, or Ruby-on-Rails).

Disqus Comments

Galada Theme comes with Disqus comments enabled.

Open _config.yml file, and change the mr-brown value on line 26 with your Disqus account shortname.

  Comment Section (Disqus)
  disqus-identifier: mr-brown \# Add your shortname for Disqus Comment. For example mr-brown

That’s all you need to setup Disqus from the theme side. If you get any issue regarding that comments are unable to load. First, make sure you have registered your website with Disqus (Step 1).

And also check Disqus troubleshooting guide if you still have issues.


The Instagram feed is working using Instafeed.js to show the photos.

First, you will need to get your account userId and accessToken from the following URLs:

Second, open the js/common.js file and replace the userId and accessToken values.

        var instagramFeed = new Instafeed({
          get: 'user',
          limit: 6,
          resolution: 'standard_resolution',
          userId: '8987997106',
          accessToken: '8987997106.924f677.8555ecbd52584f41b9b22ec1a16dafb9',
          template: ''

Third, open the _config.yml file and replace the instafeed: false on instafeed: true value.

        \# Instagram Feed
        instafeed: false \# To enable the instafeed, use the value true. To turn off use the value false.

Google Analytics

To integrate Google Analytics, open _config.yml, and add your Google Analytics identifier.

\# Google Analytics
google-analytics: \# Add your identifier. For example UA-99631805-1

Update favicon

You can find the current favicon (favicon.ico) inside the theme root directory, just replace it with your new favicon.


I have used the following scripts, fonts or other files as listed.
