I just installed Jekyll and I’m still working through the template. I had a basic framework that was working on localhost. However, when I pushed it to Git the layout wouldn’t work. I corrected the YAML to include my page URL but, the issue persisted. I tried applying a theme from Github. But, it still doesn’t work.
I made the update to the url and then changed the layout to default. Nothing happened after either of those changes. When I deleted the gemfiles it now displays text on the home page however, it is clearly not formatted.
Oh man! I can’t believe I didn’t see that! Thank you so much!! I switched it back to minima as well since the layout is much more preferable with the way I have things configured. Do you have any resources you would recommend for further customizing my page?
I’ve updated my A and CNAME files. For some reason it still redirects to Zethtren.github.io but only on computer and only on google chrome. Chrome on my phone works fine as does safari on both. The new url is www.HoustonBova.com EDIT: Cleared my cache. This issue is now resolved.
I was hoping to change the About button into 2 buttons with the same format. One My Story and one My Mission. I was also hoping to Change the text that says Posts so it would say Projects. Any advice on where to start looking for that?
the theme has control of those things, and the theme you are using is sort of hiding the layout files in its own folder.
I am not of a fan of this and would always recommend using a theme that is actually part of your repo - where all of the theme files are visible - note that you can do this more or less with the theme you are using, read the link above.
I think the About page text is the title - so if you edit the title of the about page I think the link will change. I think you can add another md page for My Story and it will show up as a link there as well. But if so keep in mind that any new file will show there, not sure if you can exclude them easily.
Thanks so much for all of the help. I guess I’m going to have to take my time with this. HTML and CSS are still pretty foreign to me. For working with this would you recommend learning Ruby / Ruby on Rails? Or is it not really necessary?
