My first post here. Stumbled across Automad not long ago and it's just perfect to a digital magazine/blog type. In this regards, I'd like each post to have a "Author: John Doe", somewhere where the date shows and the tags. There is no default setting for that so it seemed to me that this can be achieved with variables. But, the little I know of code doesn't include variables and I completely lack the ability to even grasp how they work or how to use them. So perhaps they're not even for the use I mention above.
I'd also like to change the date format but I miss how I can do this. Yes, I have went through the docs and read it whole, but I just can't get round to it.
Would someone care to lay it down for me, not as in spoon-feed me, but close enough 😅.
