github/pages status check never ends

Hi community,

I added the github/pages status check as a “Require status checks to pass before merging” on the “master” protected btranch of one of my project ( and it never ends.

Is it a known issue? I have a test suite that ensure that the doc compiles successfully but I assumed that github/pages check could be used as a more reliable replacement.

The github/pages status check isn’t a check that you can configure like most others to run wherever you choose. The github/pages status check is what publishes your site to GitHub Pages. So if your repository is configured to publish master to GitHub Pages, for example, then when new commits get pushed to master, the github/pages status check runs to publish that new content to GitHub Pages.

If I’m understanding what you’re trying to do, it can’t be used in that way to validate your docs  without publishing the content to GitHub Pages.

I hope that helps!
