I am using the Minimal Mistakes theme installed as a gem on a local server. I am configuring the _config.yml to try and get the author sidebar, and navigation in the sidebar on all pages on the entire site. This is the current code.
Using this code in _config.yml I have been able to get the sidebars and navigation on all “posts” type pages, so it works. But I am unable to get it working on the first page (index). Where it lists the posts excerpt.
I have tried adding a home.html in the _layouts folder and adding it in the front matter but that didnt work.
I tried duplicating the above code in _config.yml but changing “type posts” to “type: home” instead but that didnt work.
I am probably not understanding something here.
Can someone give me pointers to how I can get this working? Thanks
