Image shortcode for large images

To add images using the resize-image shortcode included with this theme, you will need to create a Post Bundle. Create a folder for your post, put your Markdown file and images inside, and rename your Markdown file For example:

- image1.jpg
- image2.png

Then, you can add an image within your Markdown file by using the shortcode like this:

{{< resize-image src="image1.jpg" alt="My first image" >}}

Add captions like this:

{{< resize-image src="image2.png" alt="My second image" caption="My caption" >}}

Read more link for posts

Set showReadMore = false to true in the config file to have a "read more" link show up when posts are truncated.

Social media accounts

In the params section of the config.toml file, you can add links to your social media accounts. Simply remove the ones that you don't want to include, and their icons will disappear from the site.
