Customization

Configuration

I have included with v1.0.4 a way to do some basic feature configuration that is often asked for: These are the default values (found in oscar.js):

let oscar = {
    animatedNav: true,
    tagMenu: true,
    tagKey: '#tagnav',
    requirePosts: false
};

animatedNav: if the nav auto hides, or is shown
tagMenu: if the secondary tag menu is shown
tagMenu is dependant on ghost api beta feature this can be turned on under [Ghost Admin] -> [Labs] -> [Public API]
tagKey: what the custom key to look for in the tag description is. (this can be any string)
requirePosts: show only tags that have posts in them

Navigation

NavBar
The navigation menu can be customize through the ghost admin, the theme come with 32 custom icons that can be used in the nav bar menu.
Please see here for all icons http://ogem.co/blogiconmoon
simply just use the icon class name
e.g icon-twitter for -> twitter. Navigation

Gallery

To get the full benefits of the Gallery Viewer (Photoswipe) in a blog post, simply tag the post with gallery. Any post that is of type gallery will get special behavior.

  • Gallery Post will be displayed differently in a the list post view, they will show special gallery icon, and will not show any description.
  • Gallery Post will have special behavior for the user. The images will all have a cursor pointer and be clickable. Once any image is clicked, the photoswipe viewer will open in full view.
  • To add images to a gallery post, add them as you normally would with any post.

Code Syntax Highlighting

Use prismjs for syntax highlighting.
in your blog symply surround code block with:

```language-bash
