Markdown Question

jekyll won't process markdown even with non-BOM files

I'm trying to set up a simple blog on via Visual Studio and Jekyll but Jekyll can't seem to parse markdown for my posts correctly. Here's the result for my file as is.

Notice that per Visual Studio, this currently is saved with BOM but still builds.

I'm aware that files need to have NO BOM (Byte Order Marker) so I've tried saving it without it but still can't get any results. Anyone have any ideas?

EDIT: Here's backtrace output per comments:

EDIT2: I've tried all the possible line endings available and still can't seem to get anything going. Per @Waylan 's comments I looked into issue #3304 but it seems it isn't fully resolved. Check out this issue if you'd like to add any comments

Answer

Seems this was occurring because I was adding via Visual Studio.

You must add the files as a regular text file in Windows Explorer - then you'll be able to edit them in Visual Studio as you like.

Hopefully we'll get support for this in later version of Jekyll or Visual Studio will change whatever it is that's causing the issue. I've made note of the issue with Jekyll already here though if anyone would like to add on to it
