      Moved theme over to the new Theme · 66434883
      Richard Perry authored
      Whilst I was removing the old theme files, I tweaked a number of the category and location pages to
      make sure they were working and to improve the way they work
      Removed some additional extraneous files that were missed on the moved to GitLab

      Updated Vietnam posts with photos · 136fc936
      Richard Perry authored
       - Added photos to the following posts
         - A Very Long Journey
         - Ha Long Bay
         - Back to Hanoi
         - Blue Lagoon
         - Gullfoss & Geysir
         - Northern Lights Hunting
         - The Land of Fire & Ice
       - Started changing the site structure, now posts are going to be sorted into folder based on the
         trip and then tags will be added to display the location. This will reduce the length of the
         urls, and make it easier to find posts in the source (hopefully).
       - As part of the restructure, added location icons to the metadata
       - More to follow shortly 😃

      Merged pages branch into source branch · 32dbcd29
      Richard Perry authored
      - Added the following Gems that can be used with GitLab Pages natively (actually,
        anything can be used with GitLab Pages and their shared runners setup. No more
        safe mode Jekyll for me 😃)
        - jemoji
        - jekyll-paginate
        - jekyll-gist
        - jekyll-redirect-from
        - jekyll-sitemap
      - Removed the pages.rb plugin and moved the pages into the Pages folder so that
        Jekyll would process them.
      - Removed the redirect pages and added the necessary YAML frontmatter for the
        jekyll-redirect-from gem
      - Removed the RSS Feed xsl and css files
      - Removed the need for the Rakefile, Gruntfile etc
      - Put the css into a sass file so Jekyll could combine them itself and added the
        sas declarations to _config.yml
      - Removed the sitemap.xml file in lieu of the jekyll-sitemap gem
      - Removed the defunct javascript files
      - Removed the CNAME file as it isn't needed in GitLab
      - Changed back to the old Flickr plugin as it seems to work better
      - Added site.baseurl to a couple of the asset links as best practice

      Now I just have to work out how to merge this back into the source branch and
      then rename that to pages so we don't have any unnecessary branches lying
      around 😃

      Added category archives · d09ebefc
      Richard Perry authored
      Added category archive pages for China/Yanghuo, UK and UK/Cornwall because these were missed for some reason
      Also added category archive pages for future posts including UK/North East, France, France/Paris
      Added an archive by location page to easily navigate post by the place they describe. I guess this is really in
      preparation for the future where we will potentially revisit some of the places we've been previously.

      Updated Flickr Plugin · bf99df40
      Richard Perry authored
      Made a few changes to the Flickr plugins to improve the display of Mailchimp email campaigns
      Changed the gallery wrapper to a div with spans per image instead of using a list
      Changed the 'summary' selection from 6 images to 8 images to improve how it looks on the home
      page
