Project site while using CNAME on Org site

I have an Org site at https://blog.poliastro.space with this repository:

https://github.com/poliastro/poliastro.github.io/tree/master

And a CNAME in my poliastro.space domain like this:

https://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=a%3apoliastro.space&run=toolpage

Now I’d like to setup this project site:

https://github.com/poliastro/poliastro-benchmarks/tree/gh-pages

But if I try to browse https://poliastro.github.io/poliastro-benchmarks it redirects to https://blog.poliastro.space/poliastro-benchmarks, which yields a 404.

This is very similar to the issue reported here:

https://github.com/isaacs/github/issues/547#issuecomment-220288687

But the responses there do not clarify my problem. In particular, according to a GitHub support person:

> Yep the user.exmaple.com/projectname will automagically serve user/projectname gh-pages content.

But apparently it’s not working in my case. Anything I’m doing wrong?

Hi there @juanlu001,

Thanks for being part of the Community Forum. I’ll help as best I can.

If you’ve never published to GitHub Pages before from a particular repo, then things should magically start publishing when you create a gh-pages branch. But if you previously selected some other branch that doesn’t exist anymore, you may have to go to the repo settings and select gh-pages here:

If that still doesn’t do the trick, I’d recommend reaching out to private support at https://github.com/contact so we can dig a little deeper.

Cheers!

Hi Nadia,

Thanks for your help! The repository was indeed properly configured, but to make sure I made a commit to gh-pages and… The pages appeared! Problem solved.

Best,
