I am using GitHub Pages to publish my Jekyll blog. Therefore, changing file names vs. is not allowed for me. How can I create a new index.html (no paginator, completely different html file) which includes a link to my jekyll paginator page. Whatever I do, it changes index.html which is something I don’t want.
not real clear on what you are trying to do.
Sounds like you should change the name of the index file to something else -
links.md and then do what you want with the index file. You can only have one index file in a directory.
not sure why you can’t change the filename on GH, I don’t have a problem doing that as far as I remember.
Please post the directory list of your jekyll source
I think you are missing the index.html (your own), how about just add a new file called index.html
