Installation

First download this theme to your themes directory:

$ cd themes
$ git clone https://github.com/getzola/even.git

and then enable it in your config.toml:

theme = "even"

The theme requires tags and categories taxonomies to be enabled in your config.toml:

taxonomies = [
    # You can enable/disable RSS
    {name = "categories", rss = true},
    {name = "tags", rss = true},
]

If you want to paginate taxonomies pages, you will need to overwrite the templates as it only works for non-paginated taxonomies by default.

It also requires to put the posts in the root of the content folder and to enable pagination, for example in content/_index.md:

+++
paginate_by = 5
sort_by = "date"
+++

Options

Top-menu

Set a field in extra with a key of even_menu:

# This is the default menu
even_menu = [
    {url = "$BASE_URL", name = "Home"},
    {url = "$BASE_URL/categories", name = "Categories"},
    {url = "$BASE_URL/tags", name = "Tags"},
    {url = "$BASE_URL/about", name = "About"},
]

If you put $BASE_URL in a url, it will automatically be replaced by the actual site URL.

Title

The site title is shown on the header. As it might be different from the <title> element that the title field in the config represents, you can set the even_title instead.
