Totally confused about what magic I have to do in order to get
livereload to actually work on
jekyll 3.8.3. For some reason this information is not included in the documentation?
I am using
jekyll 3.8.3 on an
Ubuntu 18.04 VPS (Linode). I understand that I need to make a
_layouts directory and then a default layout file of some sort but it would be great to find an example that works to reference, as I am not sure what needs to be in this layout in order to accomplish
livereloading. All I see online are brief descriptions about fixing this that simply say “you have to put a head tag in a layout file.” Fine, but how? And that needs to somehow be connected to
index.html presumably? How does that need to happen?
A possibly related problem: if I run the following command
jekyll serve --livereload --host=PUBLICIPADDRESS or
jekyll serve --host=PUBLICIPADDRESS --livereload I cannot actually load the example page…it just times out, making troubleshooting livereloading pretty difficult.
Any suggestions would be appreciated,
