final blog url; post won't appear using Jekyll theme

Solved! Go to Solution.

I completed the GitHub Pages course. I had already created a GitHub Page at username.github.io. The course creates another website/blog at username.github.io/github-pages-with-jekyll. It is the former repository & url (username.github.io) that is supposed to house our permanent website/blog, correct?

 

I created a new post in the username.github.io repository, as we did in the Pages course. It is in my master branch. However, a link to it didn't appear on my website (https://username.github.io/) until I tried changing the theme from a Jeykll one (jekyll-theme-minimal) to 'minima'. What's going on here? How can I both use a Jekyll theme & get my blog posts to appear?

 

Thanks!

Re: final blog url; post won't appear using Jekyll theme

Hi @kbfreder! If I'm understanding correctly, you're asking about why a link to your new post didn't appear while you were using the jekyll-theme-minimal theme.

 

minimia, the theme you switched to, is a Jekyll theme, but one of the core differences between the two is how they show blog posts, as you've seen. minimia is also a Jekyll theme, even though it isn't one of the standard template choices when you first create a Jekyll site using GitHub Pages. If you'd like to switch back to jekyll-theme-minimal, but have different behavior than happens natively, you might be able to find more information in their documentation here: https://github.com/pages-themes/minimal

 

@kbfreder Does this answer your questions?
