Issues Adding a New Page

Hello there! Welcome to my first post here on the GitHub community! Currently, I have been working on revamping my website using GitHub Pages! I have run into some issues though. I cannot add a new page. I have the home and 404 In progress, but I cannot add another new page. According to this page, you add a new pull request, and that’s what I have done.


As you can see in the above screenshot, I have added the branch, and I’ll list the basic code for the page below.

layout: page
title: "Scripting Examples"
description: "Examples of my amazing scripting ability!"
permalink: /portfolio/scripting/

Sorry for the Lua code block, it is the only block I know how to use on a discourse forum.

As you can see in the code, I have added a title, description, and the permalink, but it still does not work. For those wanting to test, go to http://hendricomaximus.github.io/portfolio/scripting, which should be what the permalink makes.

Thanks for reading! Any help is appreciated! Have a nice day!

Hey @HendricoMaximus! Welcome to the community. You need to simply merge the pull request. Click on Pull Requests, then the one you opened, and you should be able to click the merge button. Try the link you posted above in ~5-10 minutes and it will work.

Sorry for the delay! Thank you for telling me! I didn’t see that in the tutorial.

For what it’s worth, you definitely did not make a mistake anywhere here. The tutorial you linked is incomplete and I opened an issue to resolve that here: https://github.com/github/docs/issues/2150
