Development Tools GitHub Basics Hello, GitHub! Search and Explore

Unable to follow the tutorial. The screens of GitHub in your course do not correspond to the current GitHub. ???

Sitting on the https://github.com/explore page in your tutorial you have a search box. That URL gives no search input to do any searches at all. And that is just one of several points where I cannot follow. In fact I stopped learning two weeks ago disheartened.

You are correct. In fact, I did this course only weeks ago and it was fine. Following your links, it appears that github.com has had some site changes made, but the videos have not yet been updated. The search box they refer to is on most pages of the site as I browse around but for some reason it has been removed from the Explore page.

Hey even thou GitHub has updated a bit you can still follow along as the lectures explain where you can basically find everything, and it not that hard because GitHub just really shifted around a few things. If you have any problems post it to support or the community and they can assist you. You can message me if you want and I can do a little research which may assist you in some way.

how do you search? that sounds like a very useful tool... but it doesn't show as an option for me.
