I have added a README file to the root of a public repository with the same name as my username (panchalamitr), that README should automatically appear on my profile page(panchalamitr (Amit Panchal) · GitHub) but it is not showing. can any one help me what will be the issue with that.
It looks as though that repository wasn’t created initially as a profile repository, and it’s possible a number of changes may have thrown it off.
Personally I would try
- rename this repository something else to free up the repository name
- create a new repository with the correct repository name and initialised with a README.md
If that README shows up on your profile, then you can work away in that repository customising it.
You might forget to click the
Share to profile button after creating the repository to show the content to your profile. how-to-display-readme-md-file-on-profile-in-github
