Missing Git Push Option?

dkekishdkekish Posts: 5 New member

Just trying out the source control before we introduce it to the team, and while I can link to a local git repo cloned from a remote repository, I can't find a way to push the changes to the central repository via the tool. Did I set something up wrong? The documentation indicated that I should get a push option after the commit, but its not available.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

    I solved it actually, turns out you need an origin/master branch in the remote repository before you can push to it. Once you have that, you can push/pull with no issues.

    Hope that helps someone else
  • Hi there.

    I found this thread when searching for the missing push button. Unfortunately I still don't get it. :)

    I'm using Bitbucket and can push pull without issues using the appropriate command line commands. (tracking of the remote master branch is setup)

    Here is my output from "git branch -vv" (from here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1715 ... s-tracking) showing that my local master branch is tracking origin/master
    * master 5809198 [origin/master: ahead 1]

    Does somebody have an idea what I'm doing wrong?

    UPDATE: I'm using version 5 since today
