Adding a categories page to this blog13 Jul 2017 | blog
I succeeded in adding a Categories page to this blog.
Jekyll supports specification of variables
tags in the front
matter of blog posts but it is left as an Exercise for the Reader™ to do anything with them. The
Lanyon theme does not itself include page with category or tag lists
(but of course is infinitely expandable).
So I created a contents page by adapting this
with my own amateur CSS applied. The page is
contents.html in the root directory of the
site and has front matter:
--- layout: page title: Categories ---
The Lanyon sidebar automatically creates links to any
layout: page in the front matter so the Categories page is easily found.
