To have author bylines and bio at bottom of posts, add configuration like the following in
authors: johndoe: name: John Doe website: https://github.com/barepants bio: An awesome bio # Author info at bottom of post only shows if bio exists avatar: /crossing-jekyll/images/avatar.jpg
and specify the author in the Front Matter of posts:
--- author: johndoe ---
Crossing generates Open Graph and Twitter Cards meta tags automatically for better social media sharing. There are two extra settings:
# _config.yml og_image: /images/og-image.jpg # Fallback og:image when no page.image or site.image. at least 200 x 200px. twitter_site: # twitter:site. Your Twitter username without "@"
page.excerpt is used for meta description of posts and pages. It is the first paragraph by default for posts. For pages you have to set it in the Front Matter:
--- excerpt: An excerpt ---
Twitter Cards requires meta description. Facebook could infer it from the page if it's empty.
