SOLVED: Another 404 issue on Pages

I’ve read through numerous posts on this, but can’t seem to find any with a similar issue.

See the attached screenshot. I’ve created a repository called joelindstrom, and my username is joelindstrom. So shouldn’t this page be published at https://joelindstrom.github.io/ in this case?

But as you can see on the screenshot, it’s at https://joelindstrom.github.io/joelindstrom/ and if I don’t add the /joelindstrom/ directory I get the 404 message. Funnily, the links on my website believe they are the root directory so the don’t work either.

I’ve tried a few things, including deleting the repository and re-creating it. Same thing.

Any ideas? Am I missing something obvious?

Keep in mind you should name your repository <username>.github.io to assign the apex subdomain on the repository.

Oh my, that solved it of course. I should’ve read the instructions more carefully.
Thanks so much for the help!
