Updating or adding to your posts in Jeckyll is done with the ‘markdown’ files located in the ‘_posts’ directory in your Jeckll site. Find and open an existing post - Copy and ‘save as’ to create a new post.
Documentation - https://jekyllrb.com/docs/posts/
Open Terminal and change your directory to the jekyll site saved locally on your localhost.
Example for my setup ( yours will have different path/filename )
Update the file contents: Text formatting links below.
Run the command from that directory to compile and run your site locally to test -
bundle exec jekyll serve
You can then test your site locally - typically this address will be http://127.0.0.1:4000/
Commit your changes to Github and retest:
- Github Desktop
GitHub Pages only required basic programming skills and beginner Github experience. I would recommend using GitHub Pages for your personal site.
