Create a new collection
A collection is like a folder that contains a group of pages. A page is like a file in your Github repository.
A collection can only exist when there is a page inside. So you must create a page in a collection.
On Github, a collection is a folder
Step 1 Create a file, which will represent a page on your site.
Step 2 Specify the folder name
A folder for a collection should always start with underscore (_). Replace spaces between words with dashes (-).
Always keep all file and folder names in small caps
Step 3 Add a forward slash to fix the folder name and set a file name.
A file name usually corresponds to your page name for easy reference.
By typing the forward slash, you're fixing the file path of the folder
Step 4 Specify the title and permalink of the page
- 1.You should enclose the title and permalink inside three dashes
- 2.Permalink should not have any spaces in between.
- 3.If you're creating a page inside a collection, you should specify in the permalink that the page is inside the folder. For example, for a page named
My pageinside a folder called
My New Folder, the permalink will look like this
title: New Page
Step 5 Scroll to the bottom and click commit at the bottom of the page to save the file.
