Somewhat new to source control and Sourcetree.I checked out a previous commit and it created a HEAD branch (that is not acting like a branch at all).
I want to go back to only having one branch (master). Please help!
so what I found is that I needed to create a branch from my "HEAD" branch (which isn't really a branch at all) using the new branch command. At that point head is gone! yay! Then I was able to merge that branch with master and delete the unwanted branch I had created from HEAD.
You could also have checked out an existing branch, then used right-click on the latest commit and selected Reset <branch> to this commit to move the branch pointer to where you want it to be.
When HEAD is displayed, it means that you're on a detached HEAD, which means you have no branch checked out and any commits won't move any branches when they're made. If you checkout a detached HEAD in SourceTree, it will warn you fairly obviously, so maybe this was done on the command line beforehand and you saw the after effects in SourceTree.
As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
