Static site not rendering markdown files (resolved)

I have a Jekyll static site building and deploying successfully to Render, but it’s only returning the raw content (e.g. markdown) and not the compiled pages. For example, if I try to load the root url, it returns the contents of / including the front matter as plain text. I can request /, but it also returns the contents of the markdown instead of the compiled html.

This same site is deployed to Netlify with no special customizations or accommodations.

Ok I figured it out. I missed setting the build command and site directory in the settings.
