I am trying to add an option to an R Profile file so that when R is started the option is set automatically. In particular, I'm trying to change a blogdown option (through using
options(blogdown.subdir = 'blog')).
When I restart my R session and / or close and reopen R Studio, the R Profile file remains changed, but the option does not appear to have unless I run the
options() line in the console. I then tried adding a few other things to my R Profile (i.e.,
message("Hello!") to test whether the file was run, but was curious if there is a more reliable or better way to check that the file is being run.
