Hello, this is my first post so thank you in advance for being gentle!
Here is a link to the lesson I’m currently on. It is from “How to Backtrack: Lesson 3: slide 3”. Let me know if I can post this in a better fashion (can I use HTML within the comment to create a hyperlink? How would I do that…?)
<Below this line, describe in what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
I’m having difficulty understanding what I need to be doing to add/commit changes to a file. I was able to “git add scene-5.txt” then "git commit -m “balloons change” but now I can’t seem to commit anything else. I’ve tried to change the text in the editor and then commit new changes (“git add scene-5.txt” then "git commit -m “next balloons change” or "git commit -m “balloons change”) but I keep receiving the message:
“On branch master
nothing to commit, working directory clean”
I’ve used “dir” to verify that I can see scene-5.txt and it is there along with the other scenes. I’m also able to “git log” and “git show HEAD” but I can’t seem to commit anything new.
Related: do I need to enter “git add ‘filename’” each time before I make a commit? Also, do I need to keep the same commit name or do I need to change it each time?
Thanks in advance for your help!
