As a recipe, if you want to enable a custom domain name on blog-o-matic a special file needs to be created on the ‘GitHub Pages’ served ‘master’ branch. In order to do so, edit pelicanconf.py and add the following differences: diff --git a/pelicanconf.py b/pelicanconf.py index 680abcb..fc3dd8f 100644 --- a/pelicanconf.py +++ b/pelicanconf.py @@ -46,13 +46,16 @@ AMAZON_ONELINK = "b63a2115-85f7-43a9-b169-5f4c8c275655" # Extra files customization -EXTRA_PATH_METADATA = {} +EXTRA_PATH_METADATA = { + 'extra/CNAME': {'path': 'CNAME'}, +} + EXTRA_TEMPLATES_PATHS = [ "plugins/revealmd/templates", # eg: "plugins/revealmd/templates" ] -STATIC_PATHS = [ 'images' ] +STATIC_PATHS = [ 'images' , 'extra'] ## ONLY TOUCH IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING!...
