If you already have a web-page, then maybe you aren’t reading this.. Either way, you must name your repository as the same as your username (or the organizations name) on github. So my first website’s repository name is infominer33.github.io since my github username is infominer33. Now it publishes to
infominer.id (but also
infominer33.github.io) because I have a custom domain, and every other repository I publish from my user account, rather than in an organization, is a branch of that first domain.
Since I already have a primary webpage, I change my repository name to
repo-portfolio. That way, it lives at:
On github pages,
_config.yml lives in the root directory of each webpage, this is where you can fine tune settings which repositories display:
projects: sort_by: pushed # sort_by options: # - pushed # - stars limit: 12 exclude: archived: false forks: false projects: - pub-yes - yest - archive-crypto - yest-the-docs - bahamas-crypto
you can also configure social media accounts.

Cool beans, right?
There are also blog features, although I’m not sure I’ll blog there… who knows!?!?
I haven’t looked through the issues, or pull-requests yet to see what folk are working on, or tried to tweak any of the quirks I’ve noticed..
