Cayman Theme not rendering from Demo

I went through the GitPages demo this morning, didn’t see anything but a 404.  Now I went and changed the theme on the repo’s settings page and see the “hello World” text but not theme.  Are these pages lagging for some reason?

This is the demo I went through; pretty basic – https://pages.github.com/ – Everything was working fine with non errors, except step 5.  Just a 404.  I changed the theme here – https://github.com/daveOrleans/daveOrleans.github.io/settings  in the GitPages section and applied Cayman but only the old hello world text. Nothing else.   Thanks.

Hey,
The GitHub pages cayman theme only renders markdown files. You will need to delete your index.html and create a README.md, the content in there should be served.

Hope this helps!
