This page explains how the “Vital statistics” sidebar works.
The sidebar supports quite a few fields; see this comment for a list. Including at least one of these fields will cause the statbox to appear; otherwise, there will be no statbox for the page.
Multi-part URL statistics
Several URL-type stats have multiple related keys (e.g.
release-version). This is to give you control over displayed text in the limited space of the Vital Statistics box. Note that entering a URL alone is typically insufficient to display: you must also enter a corresponding label.
source-url key is an exception and does not require a corresponding label. Appropriate text will be auto-generated based on the URL domain.
Keys with Special Values
All statbox front matter supports plain-text
key:value pairs, but several key types have additional value parsing options.
- Name | link - Displays the given name with a custom link. This can be absolute (
Google | https://google.com) or relative (
Google | /people/google)
All of the
team- sections (e.g.
team-developers) accept comma-separated (
,) lists of one or more individual(s). Each person can be in one of three formats, and the formats can be mixed and matched:
- @person - Looks up the person as an id in the people directory. Note that the
@can appear anywhere in the id, but can not be the very first character of a value - which can be solved by putting the value in quotes, i.e.
- Name | link - Displays the given name with a custom link. See also Affiliation.
