Step 4: Customize Site Details

Great work! You can see your published page here. If you don't see your changes right away, refresh the page.

Getting your page blog ready

Jekyll uses a file titled _config.yml to store settings for your site, a your theme and reusable content like your site title and GitHub handle.

You can check out the _config.yml file on the Code tab of your repository.

⌨️ Activity: Modify the config file

Let's change the _config.yml so it's a perfect fit for your new blog. First, we need to use a blog-ready theme. For this activity, we will use a theme named minima.

  1. Navigate to the Code tab of this repository, and browse to the _config.yml file, or click this link here.
  2. In the upper right corner, click ✏️ to open the file editor.
  3. Add a theme: set to minima so it shows in the _config.yml file as below:
    theme: minima
  4. Modify the other configuration variables such as title:, author:, and description: to customize your site.
  5. Click Create a new branch for this commit and start a pull request.
  6. Open a pull request.

Look for my next response in your pull request.
