I recently had the need to invite a few people to a private GitHub repository of mine. No big deal, log in, go to my repositories, select the repo I want, and then click… on… wait a minute. Where is my Settings tab? It’s not there. What the hell?
I own the repo. It’s mine. But my Settings tab is missing.
I tried another browser – same thing. Cleared caches. Nothing. Then I did something so odd (that worked) that I feel like freaking McGyver.
In the URL for my repo, I appended a “/settings” and hit ENTER.
It worked, and now my Settings tab is back. Try this if you lose yours. I am still shaking my head.
