When I navigate to my custom URL (tudorpopescu dot com) and click on one of the links (e.g. “Publications”), the URL changes to the prefix of my github repo (e.g. wildetudor.github.io/publications/). For the base URL to stay my custom URL, I thought I just had to add the custom domain name in the repo’s settings - but this seems to break something, as then my site loads as “plain text”, so I had to undo this for now.

And in the Netlify DNS settings I cannot find any place to create a
In fixing my custom domain request, can I also just altogether eliminate the intermediary step of my site going through netlify, and just use GH Pages? (I am not actually sure if if the above-linked repository is GitHub Pages, or just GitHub?!)
Thanks for any help!
