Unable to see Jekyll theme

I was following a tutorial to set the Jekyll theme, and I can see that it says I’m using the ‘hacker’ theme, but it doesn’t show on the site. I have also been lead to believe that it takes you to a default README with the theme content on, but I get taken straight to my settings page. What am I doing wrong? 

It looks like in the intervening time that you got things figured out. Let us know if you have more questions!
