    Hi Nam, to change the format from Backlog to Markdown, please click ‘Project Settings’ (top right area) > General tab > choose Markdown for the Formatting Rules, then hit ‘Submit’

    For the existing wiki pages, I am afraid that you need to convert the format of contents manually.

    Thank you.

  10. why should I still select what system I use after I've selected the system which I used?

    I'm using the Chinese version in China, in the beginner's tutorial, when the website requires me to choose my system(Mac, Windows, or CMD), I chose cmd and clicked "next". The page it comes to is still a system-selection page. I tried other options and got the same result. I tried to access the pages directly from the category at the left, only to result in the same system-selection page. No javascript errors reported. website loading is finished. Orange(桔子浏览器) is my Browser.

  14. Please update the upset instructions

    Please update your installation instructions, especially about the part about Git Config. The new version of TortiseGit includes the hierarchical git configuration. It is very confusing what 'Local/Global/System' means and which to choose. It will be helpful if you can explain them in simpler terms in your tutorial.

    Hi, thank you so much for your feedback.

    Please select ‘Global’ for ‘Config source’.
    Ref: https://cacoo.com/diagrams/V40yIgxdyyShctcq

    The difference of each level:
    Local – the current repository settings stored locally in .git/config
    Project – settings for the current repository stored within the repository in /.tgitconfig
    Global – settings for the current user
    System – settings for all users of the system

    Kindly have a look at the below Tortoisegit document page:
    https://tortoisegit.org/docs/tortoisegit/tgit-dug-settings.html

    Thank you.

    Hi, thank you so much for your feedback.
    We can move a tag with ‘-f’ option, like “git tag -f v1”.
    We will delete the sentence “If you want to move a certain tag, you will have to delete it and create a new tag with the same name.”.

  16. Mistake on Note in page http://backlogtool.com/git-guide/en/stepup/stepup1_3.html

    There's something wrong with Note on page http://backlogtool.com/git-guide/en/stepup/stepup1_3.html. Explanation is inconsistent with figure below it.

    Hi, thank you so much for the feedback. We have checked the Note part, but are not sure which sentence and part of the figure are inconsistent. Would you please quote the sentence and point out the part of figure?

    Thank you for your time!

  17. Forbid some domain like google for china users.

    You know, in china, we can't access any domain name like google, facebook, gravatar etc. So, please forbid these kinds of domain's load on your page. These third part domains hugely affects the use experience of a long time page loading. Thx.

    Hi, thank you for the feedback.
    Though we are not sure if loading Google or Facebook button takes a long time as it’s processed asynchronously, we have removed those buttons from the Chinese version of Git Guide.
    Please try to open the pages again to see if the loading issue is resolved.

    Thanks again!
