TYPEMILL offers some settings for customization. There are two ways to add settings:
your-website.com/setupand use the setup form to customize the settings or
- Rename the file
settings.yamland 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.
You will find six standard settings in the file
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
- A title for your website. Keep it short, or it will destroy the design.
- An author name (or several author names)
- A licence or copyright like
cc-byor whatever you want.
- A year. This should be the starting year. The theme will add a range to the present like 2015 - 2017.
- A theme. Add the name of the theme folder here.
- A startpage. Add
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
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.
