My problem with subdirs not showing on localhost solved


#1

So… I ran into this problem with subdirs…

I have everything running on Git with no errors but on Localhost for some reason some of secondary subfolders were not showing their index pages just their own pages…

eg -

   _pages/eating-out/index.html

   _pages/eating-out/restaurants/chinese.html
    _pages/eating-out/restaurants/indian.html
    _pages/eating-out/restaurants/mexican.html

    _pages/eating-out/pub-grub/first-pub.html
    _pages/eating-out/pub-grub/second-pub.html
    _pages/eating-out/pub-grub/third-pub.html

All displayed correctly.

But

 _pages/eating-out/restaurants/index.html
 _pages/eating-out/pub-grub/index.html

where I have the categories loop included…

Would not show on localhost… yet fine on GitHub…

After scratching my head for hours and no luck with google… I tried all sorts a stuff and then had a random stab at adding /index to my permalink… and well hey presto!

If that’s of some use to you then kool… If not “Move along - nothing to see here…”

Sparky.
