If you'd like to contribute an article, please fork this repository, add your
article and create a pull request. Your articles should go in the
directory and your post images should go in
static/postimages/. Please notice
that the article metadata needs to be at the very top in between the
+++ author = ["Miles Davis"] date = "1959-11-25T00:00:00-08:00" title = "So What" series = ["Birthday Bash 2014"] draft = true +++
The easiest way to do this is to have hugo create the new post for you.
hugo new "section/title of post"
For example if I was writing a post for the 2014 advent called "go awesome":
hugo new "advent-2014/go-awesome.md"
Hugo will automatically create the file and put the proper metadata in place. Just make sure to review the metadata and adjust as needed.
Blog posts should be formatted using appropriate markdown. Please make sure to properly wrap lines for maximum readability, 72 columns is a good standard to apply. Please ensure no spelling or typographical errors are present. Make sure to preview your content locally to ensure that it looks correct before submitting a pull request.
