Sidebar Widgets Overview

With the brand-new widget configuration scheme, you can place any widgets on either side of the page and set up them fair easily. Icarus reads the list of widgets that are enabled from _config.yml and displays them in the order they are defined. The following widgets are supported in Icarus 2.0.0:

  • Archives (archive)
  • Categories (category)
  • Links (links)
  • Profiles (profile)
  • Recent Posts (recent_posts)
  • Tags (tag)
  • Tag Cloud (tagcloud)
  • Table of Content / Catalogue (toc)

Links Sidebar Widget

You can show a list of links to other websites in the sidebar by enabling the links widget. Add the following configuration to the widgets section in your _config.yml file, and you are good to go:

position: left
links:
'Website name': 'http://website/url'
Hexo: 'https://hexo.io'
PPOffice: 'https://github.com/ppoffice'

One thing you should note is that the links widget only takes a list of website name and URL, and the URL is displayed on the right side of the widget.
