Jekyll supports a flexible way to build your site’s URLs. You can specify the permalinks for your site through the Configuration or on the YAML Front Matter for each post. You’re free to choose one of the built-in styles to create your links or craft your own. The default style is always date.

Template Variables

Variable Description
year Year from the post’s filename
month Month from the post’s filename
day Day from the post’s filename
title Title from the post’s filename
categories The specified categories for this post. Jekyll automatically parses out double slashes in the URLs, so if no categories are present, it basically ignores this.
