Starting Github Pages Learning Lab course shows 404 page

Solved! Go to Solution.

I installed the Github Pages learning course. When I start the course, I am redirected to below URL in my repository with a 404

Spoiler
/github-pages-with-jekyll/issues/1

I also enabled Github pages in repository settings and selected a theme.

 

Not sure how to proceed from here. Appreciate some help. Thanks.

Re: Starting Github Pages Learning Lab course shows 404 page

Hi @NareshBabuPB! I'm trying to take a look, but I'm not finding that repository. Is there a chance it's set to private, or you have since deleted the repository?

Hello @brianamarie , Thanks for offering to look into the issue. Yes I have deleted the repository. But I was able to go through other topics of the course further and complete them. Thanks again.

Re: Starting Github Pages Learning Lab course shows 404 page

Im having this same issue, but mine is not fixed. lab.github.com/githubtraining/github-pages says 'Your repository is being set up... You may need to install the GitHub Learning Lab app on your repository!' I've done the latter but this page seems stuck, and clicking on start from the courses page leads to a 404 at github.com/KChalk/github-pages-with-jekyll/issues/1. Do I need to do something else to finish setting up my repo? 

 

Edit: Solved by turning it off and back on again. Leave course, then re-join.

How do you "turn it off and back on again"?

Hi, I'm having the same problem. I have left the course and deleted the repo and started over again, with the same 404 result. https://github.com/meggangreen/github-pages-with-jekyll/issues/1

How do you "leave the course"? This is maddening. I just get stuck in a loop with the same 404 error and learning lab things I have started the basic github training I could never view and I don't know how to reset it and register again for that course

I couldn't see the repository for this course on your account.  Do you have it set to private?

No, I removed it and now can't make it install again. I can never get to a menu that gives me an option to install. It just things I am partway into the course

Re: Starting Github Pages Learning Lab course shows 404 page

It says the lab is installed. Then I get to this page: https://lab.github.com/githubtraining/introduction-to-github Where it says, "your repository is being set up" If I watch the tab at the top in chrome, the spinner spins every 5 seconds like the page is trying to load something and move on to the next page. It never happens. There is a green botton at the upper left that says, "start: assign yourself". If I finally give up and click that, I get the 404 error on this page, obviously because it is not finding a repository with that in it. But when I had the repo, it didn't work either. Do I just try to fetch that project manually from somewhere?
