Change Log

Version 2.0 (2/4/2017)

  • HTTPS is now enforced.

Custom Domains are not supported.

For the time being, the only way to apply a custom domain name is by removing HTTPS as of the previous version. Hoping Github developers will give its users the ability to add a custom domain served under security.

Version 1.2 (1/31/2017)

  • Fixed footer code so that the twitter icon links to the twitter_username instead of instagram_username.

Version 1.1 (7/15/2016)

  • Improved galleries and search section.
  • Better rendering of the header text.

Version 1.0 (6/19/2016)

  • Initial Template

IMPORTANT!!!

Before you begin: Change the URL and the BASEURL as well as the internal nav links in the _config.yml

The URL should say https://yourusername.github.io

The BASEURL should say /repositoryname

Internal nav should say

nav:

  • GALLERY: "https://yourusername.github.io/repositoryname/gallery/"
  • JOURNAL: "https://yourusername.github.io/repositoryname/journal/"
  • ABOUT: "https://yourusername.github.io/repositoryname/about/"

If there are problems with loading assets like CSS files and images, make sure that both URL and BASEURL are set correctly!!!


NOT FOR HTTPS served repos!!!

  • Applies for v1.2!

If you want to use your own domain go to the root of your project's repository, create a CNAME file and add a line with your domain name, e.g. www.yourdomain.com.

Go to your domain name registrar and add a CNAME record pointing your domain to GitHub Pages:


Usage

Quick Start

  1. Fork this repository to get started.
  2. Go to https://github.com/yourusername/photorama/settings
  3. Rename the repository to your new project, e.g. myphotoblog
  4. Create a new branch called gh-pages in your repository.
  5. Go to the branches directory at https://github.com/yourusername/repositoryname/branches and change default branch to gh-pages.
  6. Delete master branch.
  7. GitHub will build your site automatically and publish it at https://yourusername.github.io/repositoryname/.

  • The homepage welcomes the visitors with 3 animated photos of your choice. It is recommended that all three are landscape orientated for best view.

To change the welcome content at the far left of the Home page go here: /index.html and fill the responding lines of the YAML with your desired text.


  • To enable disqus comments in the posts, change their front matter for comments to 'true'.

You must have a registered account in disqus, where you will also register a forum for your website.

Find the line s.src = '//yourproject.disqus.com/embed.js'; // in the disqus_comments.html and REPLACE 'yourproject' with your forum shortname.


  • In order to send newsletters about your posts to your subscribers, you should register an account in tinyletter.

Find the line 'https://tinyletter.com/yourproject', in the newsletter.html and replace 'yourproject' with your registered website.

You can always ommit the newsletter rendering by deleting the line {% include newsletter.html %} in the default.html layout.


If you want to use the matching NEWSLETTER template, you must always create a new file by copying its respective index.html and renaming it to e.g. 2016-March-newsletter.html and then save it inside the folder and the accompanying images inside the 'images folder', so it can be accessed to your viewers through their browser. In this case the root url for the above newsletter will be http://yourgithubusername.github.io/yourproject/2016-March-newsletter.html. Copy this link and replace this part of the code http://www.yoursite.com/newsletter/year-month-newsletter with it.


TAGS and CATEGORIES of the posts

When you add a tag or a category name in the front matter of a post, don't forget to add the responding markdown files in /journal/tag/ folder and in /journal/category folder, so they can always render when browsing the journal or searching in the respective page.


All the credits and the helpers can be found at ABOUT page.


Read this post if you want to ensure your website always loads fast.


I hope you will find it useful for your projects, photographic or not.
