Sorry, I don’t want to be giving out bad information. Is it best to delete this entire thread?
Like I say, this was meant as a band aid for people who were stuck like myself.
I was using the standard method, but then I couldn’t get it to work, even though it worked locally and the data was exactly the same.
After noticing people were using a .toml file I read the instructions in your .toml guide and it does state: “the deploy ready files generated by the build”. So I followed that piece of advice and it worked.
Secondly, my error, I didn’t know how to push to Github from the command line so did the cloning part a bit convoluted and unnecessary.
To be honest, I got into all this from a Gridsome Netlify CMS guide so jumped into learning them both at the same time. That guide tells you to link up with Github.
I will try your command line tools. Thanks for the suggestion.
And apologies for misleading people, if that’s your concern. That’s the last thing I wish to do.
