Jekyll ignoring destination in _config.yml since update, builds to "build" folder in source


Howdy. I updated ruby to 2.4.1 jekyll to 3.4.3 and now when I do jekyll build, it’s no longer respecting my entry for destination: in the _config.yml file.

Now, instead of building to ~/www/ where it always has, it’s building to a build directory inside of root, the way it might if you didn’t specify a destination.

I’m stumped. Anybody?

# Build settings
permalinks: pretty
markdown: kramdown
paginate: 10
paginate_path: "page:num/"
  - jekyll-feed
  - jekyll-paginate
  - Gemfile
  - Gemfile.lock

destination: ~/www/blog


Looks like you need to change the root path of your destination, maybe it doesn’t accept the tilde anymore?


It seems to be working now but I’m afraid I’m not sure why! I hadn’t changed the path yet, only time had passed. :confused:
