New Posts

To create a post, add a file to the _posts directory with the following format:

Where YEAR is a four-digit number, MONTH and DAY are both two-digit numbers.

All posts must use the following structure:

title: The Title of your Post
author: author_name
spoilers: [This is a topic, And another one, Bucks vs Lakers (March 6)]
game_recommendations: [Bucks vs Lakers (March 6), Lakers vs Clippers (March 8)]
Intro paragraph(s). Don’t add a title if it’s the same as the title-variable.
Also, no spoilers here!


The rest of your content (may contain spoilers)

If there are no spoilers or recommendations remove the respective line.

It goes without saying that you’re not supposed to touch any files ouside the _posts directory without the express written consent of the NBA permission from the maintainer. :)


A spoiler tag shouldn’t be a spoiler in itself. I.e. instead of Hardens’s 60-points use James Harden.

Content before the <!--spoilers-->-separator must not include spoilers. An example post can be found in the _drafts directory.
