Jekyll Default Layout

Silently sets default layouts for Jekyll pages and posts

Usage

  1. Add the following to your site's Gemfile:

    gem 'jekyll-default-layout'
    
  2. And the following to your site's _config.yml:

    plugins:
      - jekyll-default-layout
    

Note: If you are using a Jekyll version less than 3.5.0, use the gems key instead of plugins.

What it does

If no layout is specified for a Markdown post or page, the plugin automatically sets the "home", "post", "page", or "default" layout if it exists.

What layout is used:

  • /index.md - the home layout, the page layout, or the default layout, if they exist, in that order
  • A page - the page layout or the default layout, if they exist, in that order
  • A post - the post layout or the default layout, if they exist, in that order

Disabling

For a specific post or page, add layout: null to the front matter.
