I cant get the correct username to show up for commits on github.
I first had a Github account for personal use that was just to mess around and become familiar with it. Now I'm in a college course that required me to create a new Github account. We are using pycharm for python programs in my class. When I commit and push to my repository on my new Github account the commit log shows my personal account username.
Attempts To Fix:
I've tried the:
git config --global user.name "yourname"
then I tested that the username was correct with:
git config --global user.name
I did the same with email and password to see if that made a difference. When that didn't work I looked around on google to see what I could find. People said to remove and re add credentials with the windows credential manager. I did that too and still no luck.
I'm willing to delete my personal account if that's what needs to be done I just need this second account to show the correct username when pushing because the professor won't grade the code unless you use your school username.
I appreciate any feedback.
