Q: Why can't I create a .nojekyll file?

<!--[if gte mso 10]> <![endif]--> <p>A: Depending upon your operating system and platform, you may have certain restrictions which make it impossible to create a .nojekyll file through Finder or Windows Explorer. Usually you&#8217;ll receive an error message that informs you that files starting with a &#8220;.&#8221; are system files and that you lack the permissions necessary to create one. If that&#8217;s the case, you&#8217;ll need to create the file through a Terminal window or bash prompt. Here&#8217;s how you do it:<br /> </p> <blockquote style="margin: 0 0 0 40px; border: none; padding: 0px;"> <div> <div id="pastingspan1">1.<span style="white-space:pre"> </span>Open a Terminal window if you&#8217;re on a Mac, or the bash prompt from the Github client if you&#8217;re on Windows.&nbsp;</div> </div> <div> <div id="pastingspan1">2.<span style="white-space:pre"> </span>Navigate to the repository&#8217;s root directory.</div> </div> <div> <div id="pastingspan1">3.<span style="white-space:pre"> </span>Type the following at the prompt: $ touch .nojekyll</div> </div> <div> <div id="pastingspan1">4.<span style="white-space:pre"> </span>That&#8217;s it! The next time you make a commit and push to the master branch you should see your new .nojekyll file.</div> </div> </blockquote>
