Your mission, high-level, is to personalize the biography section of your new home page:
Open your blogdown R project, and use the serve site add-in right away.
In this example site, a superuser is created with the username
adminand corresponding user profile located at
content/authors/admin/_index.md. Open up this
_index.mdfile and update the YAML front matter plus the bio after the front matter (i.e. after the last
---line) to create your profile.1
.jpgfile you want to use as a profile photo. For best results, place a square cropped portrait photo named
avatar.jpginto your profile folder at
content/authors/admin/, overwriting the example image.
Attempt to update your site on Netlify (doh! this is a bit of a trick 😉).
Sign up for a Netlify account, using your GitHub account (see screenshots below).
Look at the default landing page for your current “out of the box” example site- scroll through the sections. Which do you like? Which do you want to cut? Make a list!
Look at the upper menu navbar- what menu items do you want? What is missing? Make a list!
