You can attach your full worskapce work so others can see all the files!

Hope this helps!

In addition to the above answer, I'd like to add that your workspaces are private to your account. So posting a "normal" link to your workspace won't work. Also, sometimes there is a problem caused by file naming/directory structure. In these cases, it's absolutely necessary to actually see the file system of your workspace.

Forking allows other students to create a copy of your workspace and edit your code in the copy to help determine the problem. This doesn't alter your code or your workspace. This is especially useful when the workspace contains many files and helps minimize the amount of code you need to post to the Community.

Hope this is helpful! :sparkles:
