Github Pages are not published after following the documentation

Solved! Go to Solution.

I know this question has been asked several times before, but none of the answers given seem to fix my problem. I followed the documentation (or at least, I believe I did, as I read through it several times), but I seem to be missing something:

 

What have I got:

 

 

This is my current GitHub Pages settings tab:

Github pages settings simpleinjector.github.io.png

 

What I haven't got:

  • The GitHub Page https://simpleinjector.github.io/ keeps giving a 404, even after 20 hours of first pushing files to the repository.
  • The GitHub Page settings does not state that the build failed, nor that it succeeded. I've seen screenshots on Stack Overflow that show that the settings tab should show either a success or error message. This indicates to me that for some reason Github has no idea that this repository should be the GitHub Page repo.

 

There must be something I am forgetting, but I feel that I followed the documentation to the letter. Can anyone point out my mistake?

Re: Github Pages are not published after following the documentation

Are you trying to directly go to https://username.github.io/index.html ?

Absolutely. The following link does not serve the index.html as you would expect:

 

 

It think this proves the repository is not published on github.io.

In order for your site to be published, a Jekyll theme must be chosen, even if you don't use Jekyll at all.
