YAML Question

Add href to description in _config.yml

How can I add a link to my

description:
in
_config.yml
?

I tried using

...
description: > # ignore newlines until "baseurl:"
Ogulcan Girginc's personal <a href="www.example.com">homepage<a>.
...


and

...
description: > # ignore newlines until "baseurl:"
Ogulcan Girginc's personal [homepage](www.example.com).
...


but YAML (or Jekyll?) didn't render them.



Specs:

Jekyll: 3.2.1
Kramdown: 1.12
Theme: Minima

Answer

Well, you do this in footer.html:

<p>{{ site.description | escape }}</p>

If you want to render the HTML in the description, drop the escape.
