    Hi guys: I'm a web-dev from Vienna, Austria! I just released a new Jekyll theme! Feedback and contributions are welcome! Here's the link: https://github.com/iamtheblackunicorn/elegant-simplicity

    Hi @iamtheblackunicorn
    The first thing I noticed on the demo was the horizontal scrollbar.
    The post title should be a link to the article too; it seems weird to have to scroll to "Read the post", as there is a very big picture here.
    And there is no post (404)
    Hope that helps :)

    @mtancoigne:matrix.org Two things: I deemed the post link to be the most sensible option because underlined headings are ugly. That would be bad design and not something I would want on my brand. Second thing, I fixed the "demo" link to be the one for my main blog on which this theme is active. Finally, I've been breaking my head over how to force the whole body to take up the window's size and for there to not be a scrollbar. So if you or anyone else could help, I would be much obliged.
    My CSS and HTML are a little bit rusty, been spending a bit too much time in Assemblyville and Dartville.

    You can start by adding a kind of reset on elements for "box-sizing" (check on MDN to understand what you're doing). You also can style the links to avoid the underline (check for text-decoration) and have your title be the link. That's a good start :)

    @mtancoigne:matrix.org Look, I appreciate the feedback, man. But 2 things:
    • 1.) I ain't no rookie.
    • 2.) I want the links underlined.
    Other than that, appreciate the help! @mtancoigne:matrix.org

    I think I misunderstood your statement about underlined titles, sorry!

    Hey guys! So, I would like to use jekyll for my project website and I would like to use two repositories for that. One for the jekyll stuff and the themes and so on and one for the generated website code. Does anyone have an idea how I can prevent GitHub from "pushing" to the own repository and do it instead to another?

    @l0ckna:matrix.org what do you use to build? GitHub action?

    Hi folks: Two quick questions:
    • 1.) Say I was selling digital art on a Jekyll site of my own creation (an HTML site with some CSS and JS), how would I implement a payment flow in which people click on a picture and in so doing, get redirected to a short description and a payment button (PayPal for example) and then after the transaction is complete get the picture downloaded?
    • 2.) I have a theme I created here and when I build locally, the post is rendered just fine, however on GitHub Pages I get 404. Why is that?
    Any input and help on these two questions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi there. Recently I upgrade my jekyll blog, https://shenlu89.github.io/. And then I built a simple Jekyll theme styling with Tailwind CSS, https://github.com/shenlu89/jekyll-tailwindcss-starter.

    In the meantime, I writed serval articles about how to build jekyll intergrating with Tailwind step by step that had already been posted in the demo stie: https://shenlu89.github.io/jekyll-tailwindcss-starter/

    So I'm trying to use Bootstrap in my layouts. I searched a lot for an explanation on how to do that, until I found this SOF answer. I followed the instructions - tho I did put @import "bootstrap"; in assets/css/main.scss rather than style.scss, whatever that is - and got this error:
    Conversion error: Jekyll::Converters::Scss encountered an error while converting 'assets/css/main.scss':
                        Error: File to import not found or unreadable: bootstrap. on line 2:1 of stdin >> @import "bootstrap"; ^
                 Error: Error: File to import not found or unreadable: bootstrap. on line 2:1 of stdin >> @import "bootstrap"; ^

    Let’s say I wanna display posts as Bootstrap cards. I already created a Bootstrap grid of 3 columns, and I wanna display the posts like this:

    1 2 3
    4 5 6
    7 8 9
    10 11 12

    etc. How do I do that?

    @mikwee Do you have it in the same folder? Can't expect Sass to use the force or something to find your files. (bootstrap.scss)

    @shenlu89 Maybe you should learn English before you "writed" tutorials.

    @shenlu89 That isn't meant as an insult but I've seen so many people trying to be successful with their Jekyll blogs, making designs that are out of this world but producing poor content. I am currently struggling with the very first thing, gaining readers. Read some of your stuff, needs some work. I honestly think that we should all maybe start a group where people can grow their readerships, specifically people who use Jekyll to deliver their content.
    I'll check out your site, tell you what I think of the visual bit.
    Looks good. :)

    hello! there are a lot more people in here than i expected :flushed:

    @mattr-

    Anyway, a quick introduction and then a question:

    Hi! I'm @mattr- and I'm on the Jekyll Core team, though I've been mostly been inactive for the past 18 months or so. With @DirtyF's unfortunate passing, I'm stepping up my involvement again to try to keep things moving. It's been suggested that Jekyll would benefit from a Discord community, so here's my question: If Jekyll set up an official Jekyll Discord Server, would you use it? If so, what would you like to see there?

    Thanks for reading and being a part of the community <3

    Hi @mattr-
    I won't use discord : I prefer to have one or more chans here than on a private platform.

    I also much prefer here rather than Discord. Discord is ok, but its quite unweildy to use and also has a few shady privacy issues, particularly if you use the desktop app as oppsed to your broswer
