List all your posts on your site by tag

Step 1: How to create a layout

Before taking an official step on adding the code to list your posts by tag on your website, you need to know How to create a layout that will show all your posts.

In _layouts directory, create a new file called home.html and add the following logic:


---
layout: default
---

{{ content }}
<ul class="myposts">
{% for post in site.posts %}
    <li><a href="{{ post.url }}">{{ post.title}}</a>
    <span class="postDate">{{ post.date | date: "%b %-d, %Y" }}</span>
    </li>
{% endfor %}
</ul>

Step 2: Create blog.md

Then, in your root directory, create a file called blog.md and specify the home layout:

---
title: Blog
layout: home
---

From that, contents of blog.md will be pushed into the {{ content }} tag in the home layout which will be pushed into the {{ content }} tag of the default layout.

Step 3: Generate post list

Now, just embark on adding the code to create a list of posts in multiple tags on your website.

If site.post directory helps you show all your posts in a list, site.tags file will allow you arrange your posts in different tags on your page. In this file, each item is an array with two elements. The first element in the array is the tag name, the second element is a list of the posts in that tag. Copy and paste this following code to site.tags directory:


...
{% for tag in site.tags %}
  <h2>{{ tag[0] }}</h2>
  <ul>
    {% for post in tag[1] %}
      <li><a href="{{ post.url }}">{{ post.title }}</a></li>
    {% endfor %}
  </ul>
{% endfor %}
...

Your setting up process is already done and your customers can see all your posts in multiple tags from now.
