Writing content

The documentation in this site is stored under the _docs folder. To add your contributions:

1. Add a new Markdown file inside the subfolder, as _docs/ Add the following front matter to your file:

title: Your Documentation Page
permalink: /docs/Your_Documentation/

I'm contributing to SU2! Don't forget the trailing '/' on the permalink!

2. Add the documentation pagename to the _data/docs.yml file, in order to list it in the navigation panel (create a new subgroup if necessary):

- title: Your Subgroup of Documentation 
  - Your_Documentation

3. If you have supporting images or other auxiliary files, please add them to the folder docs_files in the root directory of the repository. Don’t forget to add the correct relative links to these files in your docs, if necessary.

4. When you are ready, submit a pull request to the develop branch of the repository… and it’s all done! Thanks for your contribution!
