Following the github instructions on editing the layout/creating a new layout, but I’m stuck for hours because my page simply doesn’t want to apply any edits from the _layouts folder.
These were the instructions I followed to change the theme’s HTML layout:
- Copy the original template from the theme’s repository
- Create a file called
/_layouts/default.htmlin your site → lewinschmitt.github.io/default.html at 2237e6b3cfcf202430fae34cb885dbedb9a809e9 · lewinschmitt/lewinschmitt.github.io · GitHub
- Paste the default layout content copied in the first step
- Customize the layout as you’d like
So after struggling with this for a while, I included a simple paragraph in _layouts/default.html to see whether the layout would be applied successfully (so far without luck):
You can see the rendered page here: A test page | lewinschmitt.github.io
What am I doing wrong? Do I need to link to the layout somewhere else? Am I using the wrong directory for the default.html? Thanks for your help!
