Create issues for forks?

I created a fork and would like to be able to track issues on it for code specific to the branches I’m working on. Is there a way to do that? I don’t see any issues tab I can use (on my fork; I do on the upstream). is where I’d like to create the issues.

I can think of some good reasons for wanting all the issues tracked through the master copy, but doing them locally (i.e., on the fork) would fit our current needs better.

You can enable/disable issues per repository, and it seems for forks they’re disabled by default. Go to the repository settings, scroll down a bit, and tick the “Issues” box:

Thank you. That worked great.

I had actually looked for a way to change the settings, but got hung up on the edit button that appears just below the settings icon. It doesn’t do what I wanted, but thanks to your directions I found the right place.
