jekyll Front Matter Using Custom Variables


Example

You can also put custom variables in the front matter. These can be reused in the page layout.

For example, if your front matter looks like this:

---
layout: post
title: "Using Custom Variables!"
date: 2016-07-25
chicken: "I like Chicken."
---

You can use the chicken variable in the post layout like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>{{ post.chicken }}</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    ...

The chicken variable will be substituted in instead of {{ post.chicken }}
