  • I checked online, but everywhere I search they just use the ribbon cables so i don't really know how to connect them sorry, I'm really new to this Jan 4, 2023 at 15:32

    a ribbon cable is a bunch of wires that have not been physically separated ... in the bottom picture you could easily peel the brown wire away from the cable, and you would have a single jumper wire

  • It is unclear what you are asking or what you are trying to do. If you don't have a ribbon cable (they are readily available) DON'T USE a Pi Cobbler. I haven't used one in 10 years of Pi. Just connect the pins you plan to use. WARNING - it is possible to use 2 cables as pictured BUT be careful - this needs CAREFUL checking and increases the risk of getting things catastrophically wrong.
