Project front matter
Project parameters look like this:
--- title: "Design" date: 2017-11-13T12:21:16-05:00 image: "img/plant.jpg" external_link: "" weight: 2 ---
Projects are ordered on the main page by
weight first, then by
image will show up on the main page and in the project's details view. If you don't specify an image, the
placeholderimg from your site's
config.toml file will be used.
If you don't specify a
title, only the photo will show. You can still add content to the file to "caption" the image, and this will show in the popup. (Great way to create a simple gallery!)
If you leave
external_link empty, clicking on a project on your main page will pop up a window with the project's details. If you specify a url instead, clicking on the project on your main page will take you to that url.
Pull requests for bug fixes and suggestions are welcome.
Contributors are listed in CHANGELOG.md. Thank you so much!
