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?

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.

Re: Github Pages are not published after following the documentation

WOW this actually made my site show up. THANK YOU.

I've been trying all sorts to get my site to show. Who knew you had to set a theme?! How does that make any sense?! I've not read that anywhere else
