Re: Jekyll themes

Hi @TrulsBS,


GitHub Pages supports the officially supported Jekyll themes, as well as all open source Jekyll themes hosted on GitHub


To build your site with any public, GitHub-hosted theme, add the following to your site’s _config.yml file:

remote_theme: owner/name


Replacing owner and name with the repository’s owner and name.


And if you’re interested in making your Jekyll theme available to other users, simply follow the instructions for creating a Gem-based theme, and ensure the repository is public.


I hope this helps!
