## Getting Started

You can get started with GitLab Pages using Jekyll easily by either forking this repository or by uploading a new/existing Jekyll project.

Remember you need to wait for your site to build before you will be able to see your changes.  You can track the build on the **Pipelines** tab.

### Start by forking this repository

1. Fork this repository.
1. **IMPORTANT:** Remove the fork relationship.
Go to **Settings (⚙)** > **Edit Project** and click the **"Remove fork relationship"** button.
1. Enable Shared Runners.
Go to **Settings (⚙)** > **Pipelines** and click the **"Enable shared Runners"** button.
1. Rename the repository to match the name you want for your site.
1. Edit your website through GitLab or clone the repository and push your changes.

### Start from a local Jekyll project

1. [Install][] Jekyll.
1. Use `jekyll new` to create a new Jekyll Project.
1. Add [this `.gitlab-ci.yml`](.gitlab-ci.yml) to the root of your project.
1. Push your repository and changes to GitLab.

## GitLab CI

This project's static Pages are built by [GitLab CI][ci], following the steps
defined in [`.gitlab-ci.yml`](.gitlab-ci.yml):

## Using Jekyll locally

To work locally with this project, you'll have to follow the steps below:

1. Fork, clone or download this project
1. [Install][] Jekyll
1. Download dependencies: `bundle`
1. Build and preview: `bundle exec jekyll serve`
1. Add content

The above commands should be executed from the root directory of this project.

Read more at Jekyll's [documentation][].

## GitLab User or Group Pages

To use this project as your user/group website, you will need one additional
step: just rename your project to `namespace.gitlab.io`, where `namespace` is
your `username` or `groupname`. This can be done by navigating to your
project's **Settings**.

Read more about [user/group Pages][userpages] and [project Pages][projpages].

## Did you fork this project?

If you forked this project for your own use, please go to your project's
**Settings** and remove the forking relationship, which won't be necessary
unless you want to contribute back to the upstream project.

## Other examples

* [jekyll-branched](https://gitlab.com/pages/jekyll-branched) demonstrates how you can keep your GitLab Pages site in one branch and your project's source code in another.
* The [jekyll-themes](https://gitlab.com/groups/jekyll-themes) group contains a collection of example projects you can fork (like this one) having different visual styles.

## Enabling and configuring pagination
The template includes `jekyll-paginate-v2` plugin by default, but it's turned off.
To use it, configure the pagination following instructions from the next paragraph, go to `pagination.md` file and change `enabled: false` to `enabled: true`, and `published: false` to `published: true`. Later, create a directory called `_posts` in the project root directory and fill it with posts.
You may also need to disable showing `index.md`, by setting `published: false` in its contents.

There are two sections in `_config.yml`, that refer to pagination: first, `  - jekyll-paginate-v2` line in plugins section, and then the configuration dictionary:

```
pagination:
  enabled: true  # Note, that setting it to disabled does not disable it completely, as it has to be also set to false in `pagination.md` file
  title: ':title - page :num of :max'  # Customize the text
  per_page: 8  # How many posts should be displayed on one page
  permalink: '/page/:num/'  # The URL to the index of pagination
  limit: 0
  sort_field: 'date'  # How the posts should be sorted. can also be: `title` or any page attribute
  sort_reverse: true
  trail:  # How many pages should be shown in paginator.
    before: 2  # Show 2 before the current one, e.g. `< 5 6 CURRENT ...`
    after: 2  # Show 2 after the current one, e.g. `... CURRENT 6 7 >` 
```

To disable it completely, set `enabled` to `false`, remove the aforementioned sections from the configuration, and `gem "jekyll-paginate-v2", "~> 1.7"` from `Gemfile` (from the project's root), and remove `pagination.md` file from project's root directory.
Refer to its [documentation](https://github.com/sverrirs/jekyll-paginate-v2/blob/master/README-GENERATOR.md) for more detailed instructions.

## Troubleshooting

1. CSS is missing! That means two things:
    * Either that you have wrongly set up the CSS URL in your templates, or
    * your static generator has a configuration option that needs to be explicitly
    set in order to serve static assets under a relative URL.
