submodules work on sourceTree when pulling from github, not bitbucket

this is driving me crazy..

so this is a git repo hosted on github that if pulled onto sourceTree, the submodules work like a charm:

https://github.com/abbood/remailPOP3

however an exact copy of that repo on bitbucket

https://bitbucket.org/abakhach/breeze

doesn't seem to be able to show the submodules in source tree.. the settings are all the same! (ie in both .gitmodules and .git/confing) any ideas?

The .gitmodules file on the bitbucket repo refer to a dead link:

https://abakhach@bitbucket.org/abakhach/mailcore.git

It looks to me like you moved the parent repo to Bitbucket but not the submodule repo, but you changed the submodule URL anyway, leading to a 404. You'll need to import your mailcore project into BB at that URL to resolve this.

i actually tried what you suggested earlier (see here, and i already have the mailcore repo hosted on BB ) but it still didn't work..

i think it may have to do with a case mismatch.. when i clone the repo it's called 'MailCore' but bitbucket makes it all lowercase.. i'm working on it..

i think i know what it is.. if i click on hosted repositories.. all my github repos show up fine.. but for some reason i can't access my bitbucket one.. if i add a bitbucket repo i get the dreaded 'bitbucket api call failed'.. i had the same problem when i was adding my github account.. but then updateding to the latest sourceTree version (1.5.6) solved the problem..

That error is usually a login issue, often it's something simple like case sensitivity on the user name.

I just tried to clone your repo again and the MailCore part worked fine, it couldn't get three20 though because I don't have access. So is this solved?

yes it is.. sorry for the late reply
