I spent the last week working on uploading a new branch to GitHub using Git Bash (tutorial coming soon). If you are still trying to set up GitHub and Git Bash check out my tutorial HERE.
All this for a simple upload? The basic steps are: create a branch both remote & local, put your new files/folders into the repository directory on ur local machine, make sure Git Bash prompt is working with this branch, commit ur work including a message, push the repository back to GitHub.
It seems like a simple process, and it might still prove to be.
I must have done the steps a million times, but every time I logged on to my account on GitHub, pointed the browser to the correct branch, and downloaded the ZIP file I found none of my changes. I couldn’t figure out what was going on.
I noticed that on the download menu (pic above) the captions said at main (right now 51d280c). I found a BUG?? So even though I selected the new branch, GitHub was still pulling information from my main branch. Anyhow, I documented the Bug by adding a discussion topic. Check it out! Apparently the bug has been resolved “The page was cached with a bad link, it should download the correct branch now.” But I just downloaded, and I am now missing files that were previously there on top of missing the updates. Stay tunned…
