Sponsor link in navbar
If you have a GitHub sponsors account set up, you can add your username to
gh_sponsor in the
_config.yml file and it will display a link to your profile on the right of the navbar.
Listing your sponsors
You can list out your sponsors easily on your site using a sponsors datafile. It allows you to list different tiers and link to the sponsors site or profile.
Creating a Sponsors Datafile
If you would like to create a page to thank your sponsors then create a data file, such as my_sponsors.yml file with the following structure:
- tier_name: Platinum Sponsors size: large description: |- This is the description for the Platinum Tier sponsors: - name: Dave McDave profile: https://github.com/ - name: Sarah Lee-Cheesecake profile: https://github.com/ - tier_name: Gold Sponsors description: |- This is the description for the Gold Tier sponsors: - name: Dave McDave profile: https://github.com/
description are required. The
size is not required, but can be overwritten to ‘large’ or ‘small’ to increase or decrease the size of the box and the text size.
The sponsors require a name, but not a profile link.
Displaying the Sponsors
To display the sponsors on your page, set the sponsors to the filename without the extension in the page’s front matter
layout: page title: My Sponsors Page sponsors: my_sponsors
