Depending on your project’s releases and versioning, you may want to let your users access previous versions of your documentation. How you deploy the previous versions is up to you. This page describes the Docsy features that you can use to provide navigation between the various versions of your docs and to display an information banner on the archived sites.
Adding a version drop-down menu
If you add some
config.toml, the Docsy theme adds a
version selector drop down to the top-level menu. You specify a URL and a name
for each version you would like to add to the menu, as in the following example:
# Add your release versions here [[params.versions]] version = "master" url = "https://master.kubeflow.org" [[params.versions]] version = "v0.2" url = "https://v0-2.kubeflow.org" [[params.versions]] version = "v0.3" url = "https://v0-3.kubeflow.org"
Remember to add your current version so that users can navigate back!
The default title for the version drop-down menu is Releases. To change the
title, change the
version_menu parameter in
version_menu = "Releases"
You can read more about Docsy menus in the guide to navigation and search.
Displaying a banner on archived doc sites
If you create archived snapshots for older versions of your docs, you can add a note at the top of every page in the archived docs to let readers know that they’re seeing an unmaintained snapshot and give them a link to the latest version.
For example, see the archived docs for Kubeflow v0.6:
To add the banner to your doc site, make the following changes in your
archived_version = true
versionparameter to the version of the archived doc set. For example, if the archived docs are for version 0.1:
version = "0.1"
Make sure that
url_latest_versioncontains the URL of the website that you want to point readers to. In most cases, this should be the URL of the latest version of your docs:
url_latest_version = "https://your-latest-doc-site.com"
