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


Posts

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: 10 Best books of all time
  date: 2017-10-27 18:09:50 +0300
  img: 17.jpg
  tags: [Books, Hobby]
  author: Natali_Braxton # Optional
  ---

You can set the tags, author and the post image.

Add post images to /images/pages/ 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).


Authors

You can add other authors for your posts. In the beginning, create the author in the file _config.yml

For example:

  # Other Authors - here you can add Other authors. For example Natali_Braxton
  authors:
    Natali_Braxton:
      author-name: Natali Braxton
      author-image: 111.jpg
      about-author: My name is Natali Braxton. I love walking, I play the guitar in my spare time. And also write articles about different technologies.
      author-email: natali.example@gmail.com
      author-twitter: https://twitter.com/
      author-facebook: https://twitter.com/
      author-instagram: https://www.instagram.com/
      author-pinterest: https://pinterest.com/

Then add the author in a post. Save and you are done.

Disqus

Lokmont Theme comes with Disqus comments enabled.

Open _config.yml file, and change the mr-brown value on line 52 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.


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

Favicon

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