I have updated my github.io website with the latest hugo_academic in RStudio (1.2.5001). However, instead of replacing the current website I get YAML syntax error ‘GitHub Pages failed to build your site’ with a rather uninformative error message on the repo page in GitHub (in full below). Feel free to clone the git repo https://github.com/CWWhitney/CWWhitney.github.io.
blogdown::serve_site() in the R console and
hugo server in the terminal work fine. They build a temporary site but it does not overcome the issue in the repo.
The error reads:
GitHub Pages failed to build your site. There was a YAML syntax error on line 4 column 1 in <unknown>): did not find expected key while parsing a block mapping at line 4 column 1 YAML Exception reading themes/ hugo-academic/ archetypes/ slides/ index.md: [...] publication /index.md [...] project /index.md [...] talk/ index.md [...] default.md [...] docs.md [...] did not find expected key while parsing a block mapping" ([...] is paraphrasing for repeated text).
