Unable to add content when using Git source control

Postby adrianaharper on Thu Jul 06, 2017 11:45 am

I have checked out my Flare project, added a bunch of folders, committed, and pushed. We are using GIT. However, when my colleague pulls the project, they do not see my new folders. I am not sure what I am doing wrong? If anyone has an tips or suggestions, I'd be grateful.

TIA

Forgive what might be a "dumb" question. Are the folders you created empty? If yes, Flare won't commit an empty folder. When I set up a Flare project that I'll be co-authoring, I make sure to add at least one file, even a temp one, to each folder.

Ok - as an update. GIT can't commit empty folders, so we added a single topic to each folder, and now they have committed. But I have also deleted some sample folders that came with the project we started, and my colleague is still seeing the folders I deleted...

Thanks @Nita - you are right, it was an empty folder issue.

Do you have any experience with deleting folders? And why GIT may or may not actually delete them?

Thanks
