I need help with this part because I have been stuck on part four for days. I just can’t seem to understand what it wants me to do, and how to do it. I have to do these courses for school, and this assignment is due soon. Could you help me? :confounded:


This is a crappy course - actually the terminal is super slow to begin with - almost two decades old - you need to type alphabet by alphabet and still even if you cd into the folder and ran jekyll serve the instructions wont let you proceed forward. The popups are f***ing annoying for a typical developer. I am totally pissed of with this stupid course already.
