Stuck on Continuous Integration with Travis, Step 10

I currently cannot go on with the course on CI with Travis, as I am stuck on Pull Request #4 Step 10.

I am supposed to Merge the pull request at this point, but I cannot do it because the “testlinks” unit test is failing.

Here is the output of the build errors:

- ./_site/about/index.html

  * internally linking to /favicon.ico, which does not exist (line 1)

     <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

  * internally linking to /favicon.ico, which does not exist (line 1)

The command "script/testlinks" exited with 1.

I think this is a problem of the Jekyll source that is used for this course. Apparently, the favicon file is missing, and thus the link checker fails.

How can I go on with the course in this case?

Hi @neumannm !  So sorry for the delayed response.  We have opened an issue about this so it can be looked into.  

Expect further replies in this thread about it’s progress!

I had the same issue.

Solution for me was, while on add-links branch add a favicon.ico file to the root folder of the repo then commit the changes.
The Testlinks job of the build should pass now.

Sorry for getting back so late. Thanks @paramosmanuver , adding a favicon.ico file solved the problem for now.

Thanks @mattdavis0351 for opening an issue about that, I think it should be pretty straightforward to add the missing file to the starter repo for this course.

Thank you all! I’ve edited the template repository to have a favicon.ico file, and tested the course. It’s working smoothly!
