Coming from a Jekyll site background I would like to add some content pages (not posts, these are things like about or contact pages) to my HubPress site. The ichi theme tries to open about and contact pages in my HubPress website when I click certain icons on my home page, so I suspect this (creating contact pages) is at least possible in HubPress. Now I am just confused about how to create an about or contact page. I have tried creating a file about.adoc in my hubpress site's top-level directory but opening my web browser to (I'm hosting my hubpress site in a subfolder of an existing Jekyll-powered GitHub pages site) does not show this file (it's a blank page, i.e., I get the "404 File not found" page). Likewise creating a new _pages subdirectory in my hubpress site's top-level directory and moving my about.adoc file there does not cause a page to exist at

My familiarity with the asciidoc format is in its infancy, so please forgive me if this is all due to a trivial omission (like me missing some front-matter) in my about.adoc file.

Thanks for your time,

Hi @fusion809 and thank you for using HubPress 👍
HubPress does not yet support pages and navigation, but it will.

If you have some skills in HTML/CSS, you can publish a blog About with all the content you need and then take the HTML, rework it and save it in a about/index.html file.
I agree that it is not a good solution but it's a possible workaround.

I came here to find the answer to this question as well. Congratulations on the HubPress tool so far.

I'm thinking an expanded post in the Knowledgebase could be a useful starting point for theme modders.

@anthonny I wonder if we should have an honour roll of HubPressers with cool themes. There are some really nice mods out there (I remember you showing me some of them).
