I’m new to Jekyll, so I apologize if this is hiding somewhere. I searched and couldn’t find it.
I’m trying to create a collection of documents, possibly more than one collection. Basically, each collection will be a book, divided into chapters. So when I recurse through with a collection archive page, I want it to show the book title, with the chapters or sections underneath.
Problem is, I can’t figure out how to give a collection a long name. I put together the words with underscores, but it gets unwieldy very quickly with the directory that’s needed to store the chapters. If I give it a short name (an acronym for all the first letters in the title), it’s usable, but then on the archive page no one can understand which book is which.
I also tried just creating one large collection called “books” and putting the book titles into the header of the markdown in the individual files, but then I get an archive search result for every chapter listed and they’re not organized (even if I use subdirectories).
So, is there any sort of configuration option I can use to specify a “real name” to appear as opposed to the short name?
Any help is appreciated.
