However the link generated by github seems redundant.
Link Generated ->
But in the example in github pages it should be ->
Is there some mistake that I made with the creation of repo or pages?

Hello @MarkSuguitan-10, welcome to the GitHub Support Community!

The username for your GitHub page needs to be the same as your GitHub username.

Rename the repo from “” to “” and it should then work properly.

@sethclydesdale Thank you very much. That really solved the problem. I hope they mentioned that in the get started page. :grinning:

Thankyou, this really helped me - it would have been great if it had been pinned at top, or made more prominent.
Many thanks again
