Hey there @chrisliaskonis, maybe I can help you here!
Right now, GitHub Pages only supports static sites (sites that don't change without the code being changed) 🙂 Unfortunately, Wordpress sites run on PHP which isn't able to be hosted by GitHub. Regarding this error that you're getting, would you be able to send over a screenshot of this error message or even a video of it?
when i am trying to "commit to master" in the github app i get the error also when i am trying to open command prompt from the github app it says that i havent installed git which i have, so i am stuck at a point where i have the repository in my localhost/theme and i dont know what to do
"Warning: line endings have changed from 'LF' to 'CRLF
Thanks for that @chrisliaskonis,
Have you recently changed devices (i.e. from Mac to Windows)? Also, what operating system are you currently using?
Just let me know, and I'll see what I can suggest!
Is there any alternative to importing wordpress into github. I am having an older version of wordpress website currently planning build a new website. Suggest to me which platform to develop to get hosted on github.
Hey there @lisa875,
I'm not aware of any tools that allow you to convert a WordPress site to a static site as needed by GitHub Pages, but most functionality would be lost if there was anyways, simply because it's now static. If you're planning on building a new website, simple HTML + CSS + JS/Angular/Vue/whatever is likely your best port of call!
Some years ago I was using wordpress for my personal website, and then I discovered GitHub pages for migrate it. Unfortunately Workdpress is based on php/mysql, and GP it's only for static websites.
I found useful this feature for help to local communities to get a website and a blog post open for their members in a GitHub Organization, maybe at the beginning it look like more complicated that have a web interface for configure, but it's a great option for learn about git, submodules and GitHub, and make a little project open source. my last recent work was the iOS Developers MX blog, you could see this project here. I made this using Go Hugo, but you can use other static generators as Jekyll for example.
I think that GitHub pages it's a powerful option for mount sites.
This are the design illustrations for the go hugo blog:
Can i use my blog (Education) as Github blog? Is it necessary to first convert blog to Wordpress? What is the necessary steps to transfer static Wordpress site usig Github.
