my github page doesn't redirect to index.html

deleting Readme.md worked well, thank you so much :) 

For those having trouble with this, renaming “index.html” to “index.htm” worked for me.

This did the trick for me (makes me wonder how the routing works here), and I don’t have a README, just the the default LICENSE file and a couple html file scattered around the root dir as I was doing a basic test on a repo created some months ago

Thanks

FWIW this is still an issue in 2021.

  1. I created the default README.md file when I created the project.
  2. Created the index.html file.
  3. .io was blank. .io/index.html shows content.
  4. Deleted the README.md file.
  5. .io page shows content.
  6. Recreated an identical (i.e. empty) README.md file.
  7. .io page still shows content.

Go figure. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
