I’m trying to learn Jekyll, so I am following along with the Hello World example.
When I add the front matter and liquid tags, Jekyll no longer builds my site.
Instead, in the _site folder, I see the default index.html with “Your awesome title” and all the default content.
Why can’t I add my own front matter in my index.html?
I have Jekyll serve running, and as soon as I add front matter, my page is gone and we’re back to Your awesome title"
Not so awesome, Jekyll.
Edit: I found that the index.markdown file which came with the project should be deleted if I wanted my own front matter in my index.html file.
This was not mentioned in the tutorial. I suggest that this information be added.
