To access variables from a specific page on your site, you can reference it using its slug: site.pages['your-slug']

For example, we could grab the title and body from our /about page and re-use it somewhere else in our site:

{% assign about_page = site.pages['about'] %}

<h2>{{ about_page.title }}</h2>
{{ about_page.body }}

Here’s a quick shorthand version if you only need to access a single variable:

{{ site.pages['about'].body }}


You can also reference nested pages:

  • site.pages['about'].pages - gets all nested pages under /about/*
  • site.pages['about'].pages['team'] - gets the nested page /about/team


Posts can be accessed in a similar way, using posts instead of pages:

  • site.posts['hello-world'] - looks for post in any page /*/hello-world
  • site.pages['blog'].posts - gets all blog posts under /blog/*
  • site.pages['blog'].posts['hello-world'] - gets the post /blog/hello-world
  • site.pages['blog'].taxonomy['tags']['featured'].posts - gets posts tagged “featured”

Relative content

For flexibility in your theme you can reference content relative to the current page:

  • pages['your-slug'] - gets child page under current page
  • parent.pages - gets all sibling pages from parent page
  • parent.pages['your-slug'] - gets sibling from parent page

The same can be applied to posts. For example, parent.posts would get all sibling posts.
