Glossary of Terms

  • A glossary term

    To add glossary terms, edit the glossary.yaml file in the _data folder.

  • Another term

    Glossary terms need a term, slug, and definition attribute. The term attribute will appear above the definition. The slug is a unique identifier for the term. It should be lowercase, with no special characters or punctuation, and any spaces replaced with a dash.

  • Yet another term

    Want to link to a specific glossary term in your text, like this one here? You will need to edit your markdown like so:

    [this one here](#glossary){:define="yet-another-term"}

    Just place the text you want linked in the brackets and the correct slug within the quotes.
