I have a website for a education project. It lives at this github repo. I tested it at https://equalitytime.github.io/whitewaterwriters-site/ and it worked as expected, but then I changed it to a custom domain and now it looks like this.

If I fork it to my personal github and then serve it again, it looks normal again

What is going on?

My settings for the custom domain are:

Compared to the forked (working) repo:

...and the DNS records I edited to make the custom domain work are:

My questions are:

  • Why is the site working differently?
  • How can I make it work?

Your baseurl in your _config.yml needs to be cleared, since you are no longer serving from a subfolder.

I've submitted a pull request that fixes it.

  • You absolute superstar!
