Refer to the installing plugins section of Jekyll's documentation and install the
jekyll-admin plugin as you would any other plugin. Here's the short version:
Add the following to your site's Gemfile:
gem 'jekyll-admin', group: :jekyll_plugins
- Start Jekyll as you would normally (
bundle exec jekyll serve)
- Navigate to
http://localhost:4000/adminto access the administrative interface
Jekyll Admin related options can be specified in
_config.yml under a key called
jekyll_admin. Currently it has only one option
hidden_links which is for hiding unwanted links on the sidebar. The following keys under
hidden_links can be used in order to hide default links;
jekyll_admin: hidden_links: - posts - pages - staticfiles - datafiles - configuration
Customizing collection label in Sidebar
The plugin allows you to customize the name of a collection that is displayed in the sidebar by defining it in the collection's metadata in the config file. For example, if your source's posts are actually news-items on the deployed site, then it can be distracting to see the label
Posts in the admin's sidebar. This situation can be resolved with the following configuration:
collections: posts: output: true sidebar_label: News
