A few days ago, I have commited a change that would add a new file called
README_NEW.md that would refine the original version of the
README.md file. I have written a brief instruction, one picture, a few status banners, installation and build instructions, used libraries, and license. I have revised the document, and saw nothing wrong there. I have commited the change.
The problem is that from that commit on, I keep getting e-mails about GitHub Pages that says that it has failed building a page. I went to the deployment information, and saw that it has failed with the following:
GitHub Pages has failed to build a page
Page build failed
A few commits later, I have replaced the old
README.md with the new version of
README.md by removing the old version and renaming the new version to
README.md. This however didn’t solve the problem.
- That run for latest commit was https://github.com/EoflaOE/Kernel-Simulator/runs/1035711092.
- The project was https://github.com/EoflaOE/Kernel-Simulator.
- The addition commit was https://github.com/EoflaOE/Kernel-Simulator/commit/d7e469904aa4a760a736123a09310a307124d014.
- The replacement commit was https://github.com/EoflaOE/Kernel-Simulator/commit/d7e469904aa4a760a736123a09310a307124d014.
Furthermore, when I looked at the article that talks about Jekyll page build failure, it showed me these four conditions for generic error:
- You’re using unsupported plugins.
- Your repository has exceeded our repository size limits.
- You changed the source setting in your _config.yml file. GitHub Pages overrides this setting during the build process.
- A filename in your publishing source contains a colon
(:)which is not supported.
However, this GitHub Pages deployment is for my project. I don’t use any plugins; just a project page with the Hacker theme. My repo didn’t exceed the site limits; it just uses 250+ MB when doing a
git clone for my repo.
_config.yml file provided does not even have a source setting. There is no file that has a colon in it.
Is there any fix for this generic error?
