Creating a post series
From version 0.12, you can now make a post a part of a series of posts, linking to the other posts in the series, by creating a
series data file and then setting the series in each of the post’s front matter.
The current post in the list is highlighted to help give context of where you are in the series.
Blog Series Data File
Start by creating a yml file in the _data directory, for example
my_blog_series.yml. Give the series a title and, optionally, a description.
Next add sections. Each section can have a label (optional) and items. Each item is the title of an existing blog post. If the title is not found then the link will be empty.
If you just want one list without labels, then omit the label and just add the items.
title: The series title sections: - items: - title: Why use a static site generator - title: Getting started with Broncobots for Jekyll
Here is a full example with multiple sections with labels.
title: The series title description: The series description text sections: - label: The first section items: - title: Why use a static site generator - title: Getting started with Broncobots for Jekyll - label: Another section items: - title: Introducing some new layouts to Broncobots - title: Creating a docs site with Broncobots - title: Creating a post series
Update your posts
Finally, add the series setting to your front matter in each post you want the series to show in.
