Can someone explain what I am not understanding.
I forked the codecademy project to my Github repository
Then I cloned it locally
When I use git log --graph --decorate --oneline --all I am able to see:
72aa788 (HEAD, origin/main, origin/HEAD, main) More progress made on part 2 by Noah.
ac57fb1 fixed a spacing issue
cc93949 added more content in part 2
f9ccb70 added a conversation in part 2
ec32d24 made more progress in part 2
0777244 added a paragraph in part 2
e626c87 early progress made in both parts
The problem is I cannot do the following:
git checkout part_1_Monday
git checkout part_2_Monday
because my branch has the following:
The little black fish - part 1
The little black fish - part 2
instead of part_1_Monday and part_2_Monday
OK, got it.
I had to add each branch as a separate step in GitHub because I initially just forked the Codecademy project main branch.
That resulted in me having only the main branch., 1 branch, not all 3.
So I had to click on NEW BRANCH twice, once for part_1_Monday and again for part_2_Tuesday.
Then I could do git checkout part_1_Monday, git pull
and the same for the second branch
For anyone having trouble take a moment to look though the GitHub page
Also as I have almost completed the project I see there is a walkthrough video which I will now look at.
I think it is helpful to struggle and troubleshoot and use the Forum before looking at a walkthrough video.
