Is there a reason why only the readme file and the title are being displayed in the browser?

My portfolio works just fine: https://kys.github.io/ but ok

Re: Is there a reason why only the readme file and the title are being displayed in the browser?

Basically, GitHub Pages site uses Jekyll by default to process websites published via repositories. Since you have a `README.md` file, Jekyll assumes that you mean for that to be your sub-site's index file. If you delete the `README.md` from that repository (since you're essentially using the repo to just hold the sub-site's files) or use the `.nojekyll` file to signify you don't want Jekyll to be used, things should work the way you expect.

 

I hope that helps!

Hey Lee,

  thank you for replying. 

I got rid of the 'README.md' file but nothing happened. I want to try the .nojekyll method.

Where can I find it/or create it?

As it states in the help document that I linked to, you need to create it in the root of the repository.

 

I hope that helps!
