How pages are added as feed items

A page is auto added as a feed item if one the following conditions is met:

  • frontmatter.feed.enable === true
  • frontmatter.type === 'post'
  • it resides in whatever the posts_directories are set to (the defaults are blog and _posts)

if you need to exclude a particular page that meets one of the conditions above, you can use frontmatter.feed.enable === false.

Details on how pages are filtered can be found in PLUGIN.is_feed_page().

The PLUGIN.is_feed_page() function is the default way of filtering the pages, you can override it using is_feed_page option (see Options section below).

Options

See Plugin Option API official docs

Default options

You can override default options in 2 ways:

  1. Global plugin options set in .vuepress/config.js or .vuepress/theme/index.js as described in Usage
  2. Individual page/post frontmatter as shown in Page frontmatter

  title,
  description
} = context.getSiteData ? context.getSiteData() : context;
