TYPEMILL offers some settings for customization. There are two ways to add settings:

  1. Visit your-website.com/setup and use the setup form to customize the settings or
  2. Rename the file settings.yaml.example to settings.yaml and edit the file manually. You will find the file in the settings folder of TYPEMILL.

More details are described in the previous chapter about the installation of TYPEMILL.

Standard Settings

You will find six standard settings in the file settings.yaml.example:

title: MyWebsite
author: 'Your Name'
copyright: ©
year: '2017'
theme: typemill
startpage: true

The settings are written in YAML, a simple and human readable format. Simply add

Advanced settings

You can also add some advanced settings, if you really want.

themeFolder: themes
contentFolder: content
displayErrorDetails: false

It probably does not make much sence to change the theme folder or the content folder, but you can do so if you want.

If you are a developer and if you run TYPEMILL on your local machine, you can set displayErrorDetails to true for a detailed error reporting. Don't forget to set it back to false before you deploy the website live. It is not secure to show the world your internal errors and many hosters will turn off all public error reports by default.
