How to work with Markdown
Level Up content is added by uploading Markdown files with the correct metadata.
If you want to add or edit Level Up content, all files are accessible on Github. All pages that fall under You, the Trainer, Before an Event, Curriculum and After an Event are accessible in the _pages folder.
The Community Resources and Tools page and News and Updates pages are organized differently. The content lives in the _posts folder, in their corresponding folders (news, resources).
In the After an Event folder, you can see the root page and then two folders. The root page links to the two pages. All you need to do is add the metadata to the root page. This is the same structure for Before and After an Event and You, the Trainer. There is always a root page and then folders with every page.
The Curriculum pages are a bit more complicated. Check out the folder structure of the Mobile Safety page. Each topic has a root markdown file. Within the topic folder (i.e. Mobile Safety) there are folders that represent modules. Within the module folder (How mobile networks work), there is a root markdown file and folders for activity-discussion, input (etc). Each ADIDS category gets it's own markdown file or if there are multiple per topic then they get their own folders. See Malware Protection for a good example of this.
Metadata for Markdown
All pages are written in Markdown. See the raw files in the repo for reference on what they should look like.
When adding a new page or post make sure that it has the correct front matter or metadata. Below are examples and templates.
This is the only markdown file for a Before an Event page. The same metadata structure applies to You, the Trainer and After an Event.
