Deploying Hugo from github pages


I followed the docsy instructions for deploying a website with github pages using the gh-pages branch. I have found that it successfully deploys my site at:<repository_name>. However, this page is simply the README for the gh-pages branch, but does not appear to have the website menu and content features that the customization instructions talk about. I would greatly appreciate some advice on adding menus/customizing content on this version of the docsy website.
