Update fork from web interface

When updating a forked repo using the web interface, my fork will add all the commits from the rebase/merge to my next pull request to origin/master.

 

This cant be right.

 

I only use the web interface, no desktop git.

 

Whats the proper way to update a forked repo using the web interface?

Re: Update fork from web interface

Since this seems to be one of those unanserable questions I will tell you the only sure fire method of not screwing anything up when using the web interface is to just delete the repo, fork it again and make an new PR.

 

This is kinda wierd since I would expect the web interface to be easier to use than that.

 

Maybe it is and no one knows how to properly use it or github never expected people to actually use it.
