Hi,

My GitHub Pages website is mostly Jekyll-powered, but one subdirectory (https://fusion809.github.io/hubpress.io) contains a HubPress-powered part of the site. I was wondering if it might be possible to create a subdirectory of my GitHub pages website that is powered by Pelican as well. I have tried setting the URL of my site in my Pelican settings (set when I ran pelican-quickstart) to the subdirectory I would like to use (namely https://fusion809.github.io/pelican), but I suspect I will need to do more than this to get my Pelican subdirectory up and running.

Thanks for your time,
Brenton

@fusion809 : I actually do that here: https://github.com/MinchinWeb/genealogy

In summary, set SITEURL to your path on the server including sub-directory. In my case:

SITEURL = 'http://minchin.ca/genealogy'

I created a separate variable (SITE_ROOT_URL) that I use in the template when I want to link to the "main" site.

This was so long ago that I've since lost the interest in trying Pelican to power a subfolder of my website. The fact it took so long to get a reply tells me that Pelican doesn't have the level of support I need in order to write my site effectively. Sorry, I don't mean this to be rude I'm grateful to the two replies so far, it's just I've found the other SSGs I was checking out had a far more rapidly-responsive community when I asked questions about setting up a site in a subdirectory of an existing GitHub Pages site.

To be honest, that's a fair statement and completely understandable.
