To create a new resource room post, create a markdown file in the
_posts folder of the category the post falls under. The file name must be prefixed with the post's publishing date in YYYY-MM-DD format, e.g.
2019-02-28-press-release-by-minister.md. This file name convention will be different if you've been migrated to a CMS friendly version of v2. We will let you know to take note of this if this is the case.
Posts dated in the future will not be published. Note that posts dated in the future will not automatically be published on the date either - they will only be published together with another edit on or after that date. To publish all posts, including those dated in the future, set
future: true in
The configuration options available for posts are:
title: the title of the post which will be visible in the browser window
permalink: the path to the post, e.g.
/resource-room/category/title/. Except for slashes denoting a category, the permalink should be alphanumeric (consisting only of letters, numbers, and dashes). No special characters such as
% should be used. For aesthetic reasons, we further recommend that you avoid the use of capital letters. Omit this field if
file_url is specified
file_url: the path to the file to be downloaded, for downloadable posts, e.g.
/downloads/form.pdf. Once this field is specified, the file download will begin immediately once the user clicks on the post in the resource room menu. Omit this field if
permalink is specified
image: an image that will be featured by social media platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp if a user shares a link to the page. Optional
description: a short write up that will be featured by social media platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp if a user shares a link to the page. Optional, defaults to the first 20 words on the page if omitted
recommender: if your site has the automatic recommender system enabled, you can set this value to
false if you do not want automated recommendations to appear on this page. Defaults to
true if unspecified. Optional
breadcrumb: the text on the breadcrumb link representing this page. Optional, defaults to the first 7 words in the title if left unspecified. All breadcrumb links will appear in all caps
published: you can set this value to
false to hide the page from the generated site. Defaults to
true if left unspecified. Optional
