Cannot see Documentation link in my gem

I have published a Ruby gem

In version 0.1.1, I can see a link called documentation.
But from version > 0.1.1 I can't see that link. What's wrong?

    Hi sg97,

    sidebar links are now set per version. You can set metadata["documentation_uri"] in your gemspec if you want the link to be shown.

    when you don't specify and of the metadata URI attributes in gemspec, fallback values are used (not recommended).

    Hi thanks! I later figured that one out by comparing the version 0.1.1 to 0.1.2 and I saw I commented those links in 0.1.1. I find it quite helpful to just link the rdoc there, otherwise, there's always the homepage linked to github where user can read the readme...
