Hi all, I am a newbie to github: using it to track changes in simple text files. I primarily use github.com in the browser.
Is there a way to “bookmark” “star” “pin” etc a particular commit that I made in the github system? I can’t seem to find a button that does that.
I then thought that maybe the SHA was a unique identifier and I could just search for the SHA in the future. I read the help manual for how to search for a commit by SHA, but it doesn’t seem to find the commit. This is the help page I was looking at. From google I also found that the git command line can search a SHA easily, but I am not really comfortable with command line yet.
From my dashboard, I select the repository I want from the left-hand menu. When in the repository, I go to the upper left of my browser at the very top where there is a search field. I paste in the SHA I want to search, from partial to the entire long string … and the search never finds it. Am I not searching by SHA correctly? I tried entering “SHA:” prefix but that didn’t help either. The error screen says “We couldn’t find any code…” which leads me to believe that it’s looking for code content and not the SHA…
Of course this is just a tangent. Maybe you all know the best method to flag a particular commit. Thanks for any advice!
