Jekyll and github pages - not building but no error either

Hi, I’m trying to host a Jekyll site on Github Pages but it doesn’t appear to be building (screenshot)

Nothing’s happened after 12 hours but I’m not getting any build errors either.

It’s building on the gh-pages branch, as it should, so I’m thinking it might have something to do with my gemfile. When hosting locally, I have to run bundle exec jekyll serve as some gems need to be downgraded e.g. i18n - I’ve read that github pages runs bundle --safe and doesn’t actually read my gemfile.lock, so I’m not sure if this is causing the issue.


SOLVED: turns out you need to select a random jekyll theme, even if you’re using a different theme.

Thanks for coming back to share what worked @hudyu17, and welcome to the community!
