Rel Me Plugin

The Rel Me Plugin is for Grav CMS. Add rel="me" links to your website in 2 ways.

  1. Add <link> to the HTML <head> section or create a list.
  2. Add an <ul> list somewhere on a page.


Installing the Rel Me plugin can be done in one of two ways. The GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the plugin with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.

GPM Installation (Preferred)

The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM) through your system's terminal (also called the command line). From the root of your Grav install type:

bin/gpm install relme

This will install the Rel Me plugin into your /user/plugins directory within Grav. Its files can be found under /your/site/grav/user/plugins/relme.

Manual Installation

To install this plugin, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then, rename the folder to relme. You can find these files on GitHub or via

You should now have all the plugin files under


NOTE: This plugin is a modular component for Grav which requires Grav and the Error and Problems to operate.

Admin Plugin

If you use the admin plugin, you can install directly through the admin plugin by browsing the Plugins tab and clicking on the Add button.


Before configuring this plugin, you should copy the user/plugins/relme/relme.yaml to user/config/plugins/relme.yaml and only edit that copy.

Here is the default configuration and an explanation of available options:

enabled: true
active: true
icons: true
option explanation
enabled Enable the plugin
path Path/route to the parent page of the menu items
active If enabled, insert <link> tags in the page
icons If enabled, show FontAwesome icons in the list

Note that if you use the admin plugin, a file with your configuration, and named relme.yaml will be saved in the user/config/plugins/ folder once the configuration is saved in the admin.



  1. Add a parent page. The route to this page should be added to the plugin configuration. Disable routing of the page.

  2. Create child pages for each menu item that you want to include.

Front matter Description
title Displayed as the list title
icon A FontAwesome icon. Defaults to 'link'.
link The link to your profile page


Add this code to your template in the <head> section.

{% if config.plugins.relme.enabled %}
    {% include 'partials/relme-link.html.twig' %}
{% endif %}


Optionally you can add a social menu to a page. For example in your sidebar. Add this code to your template:

{% if config.plugins.relme.enabled %}
    {% include 'partials/relme-list.html.twig' %}
{% endif %}

The list items can have icons.


This plugin provides rel=me functionality for the IndieWeb.
