v2: Introduce show_overlay_excerpt and document #1436

These two patches introduce a new feature (#1429) allowing the per-page override of whether or not to display the excerpt in the overlay text, and document its usage.


  • Correct typo in documentat (test -> text)
  • Explicitly test for "!= false" to avoid changing default behavior
  • Remove _config.yml changes as they are no longer needed to maintain default behavior

dvhart added some commits Jan 1, 2018

Make excerpts optional in header overlay
Some posts and some header images don't lend themselves well to
displaying the excerpt in the overlay. Make this optional by
introducting a new boolean variable:


Set it to implicitly default to true so existing users are unaffected by
testing explicitly for "!= false".

This can be enabled globally for a site by changing the default to false
in the local _config.yml, or per page by specifying the value in front
