Create tagged issue

GitHub Issues is the best way to ask for code help online. It puts the question alongside the code for easy reference.

1 Go to Issues on a repo

First go to the GitHub repository you are having problems with and press “Issues”.

  1. Issues tab missing

    Sometimes the Issues tab doesn’t show when you’ve forked a repository—if that’s the case we just need to turn the Issues tab back on.

    Go to the “Settings” tab, then scroll down. Under the “Features” heading there should be an “Issues” checkbox you can enable.

    Watch this video for a quick walk through.

2 Create a new issue

Press the “New Issue” button.

3 Complete the issue info

Complete the two fields in the issue describing in depth what the problem is.

  1. In the title write a short description of the problem. Something like: “Footer looks wonky” “Colour isn’t showing up” “Columns aren’t side-by-side”
  2. In the description, write as much detail as you can think of. Links to lines of code, images, and formatting can all be used. Check out the videos & tutorials for more details.

4 Tag Thomas

Make sure to tag Thomas in your issue body with @thomasjbradley

Without the tag, Thomas won’t get notified.

5 Submit and wait…

Submit the issue with the big green button.

And that’s it!

I’ll get a notification of the issue and go and respond below in the comment section.

We can have a discussion about the problem and try to figure it out.
