I have been successfully using Jekyll and the only feature I missed was the ability to have a full text for search my blog. I looked at a variety of search plugins for jekyll based sites, but did not find anyone of them appealing. I also tried the custom google search, but did not like that either. Finally, after some rigorous researching I stumbled upon this site where the search was implemented using simple jQuery and a json based search index.
I use jekyll as my primary blogging platform. I wanted to write a post today and all of a sudden jekyll stopped working and did not generate the _site content anymore. I then deleted the _site content and tried regenerating my site using jekyll --server. It blindly said it re-generated my site however it did not. When I tried accessing my http://localhost/4000 it gave me a forbidden error, no access permission to /.
