Creating a duplicate website from a fork

I am very new to using open source. Any help would be much appreciated.

I have forked a website that i would like to use I want to use what they have established as a foundation for my own website but I dont know how to turn the fork into a website. Let alone one that I can edit.

Im stuck at a fork.

Hi @codesecretservice,

Thanks for being part of the GitHub Community Forum!

You might need to provide a bit more information in order for someone to help you more. If the repo you forked is public, can you reply with a link to that repo? If other users can see which repo you’re trying to work with, they may be better able to help.

That said, I want to clarify: are you trying to create a GitHub Pages site? If so, I highly recommend taking a look at some of our documentation on Pages to get you started.
