  • Download zip from the latest release.
  • Change values in _config.yml as required. This file is commented wherever required.
  • Create a file named CNAME and your domain (example.com) as its only line if you have your own domain.
  • Change the value of the url variable to your blog’s URL (eg: http://githubusername.github.io).
  • Uncomment and add a value to disqus variable if you want to have disqus commenting enabled.
  • Uncomment and add values to ga_id and ga_domain to add Google Analytics.
  • Add a Mailchimp Newsletter form submission URL to mailchimp to add a newsletter subscription form.
  • There’s a file projects.yml in _data directory by default. You can add title and url values to it to add a Project submenu in the top navigation. Delete this file to remove the submenu.
  • Replace favicon.ico, favicon.png and sharer.png with your own images.
  • Create new posts in the _posts directory. If a cover variable is present in the front matter as shown in the 2015-12-06-an-example-post file, it will be used as a cover image for that post. Its value should be absolute URL to the image.
  • Now install jekyll and jekyll-paginate gems to test the site locally.
  • Run jekyll serve -w in the theme’s directory to run the server and goto to check the changes.
  • If everything works well, push your changes to github.
