Codecademy is going down a narrow path, which is often hard to adapt to similar scenarios. I tried to setup a nice domain-name for my new jekyll blog hosted on github, but it just didn’t work out. To be fair, I tried something quite different then the course suggested.
I have my jakobmalek.com domain. And I want the jekyll.jakobmalek.com to point to the github page. So I set up a CNAME file in the jekyll directory. Changed the Github settings. Now it got complitcated with those Name Servers. I found the option for them at the menues at my providers Interface. But I just don’t know how to get it right.
Maybe I’ll figure it out at some point, but for today I am going to focus on bringing the first Portfolio Part to my own webspace.
And then I found a feature, I didn’t know of. It seems, by adjusting the time in the posts, you are able to specify a future point in time at which the post is going to go on air. Happily I tried changing that after going quite nuts about why this $*! post just wasn’t showing up on my little blog.
