New release - new commenting!

There's been a new release of the site!
Read more below and leave your thoughts in the new comments section.

The commenting has changed slightly, there is now no "rich editor button". It's been replaced by highlighting the text and the formatting options float on top. Also when commenting, when you click the 'add images' you may notice that the new image uploader modal (the same one used in the new editor) replaces the old image uploader.

If you don't see these changes you need to clear your browser cache (not just cookies). Then, refresh the page and click in the comments box.

As with all changes to the site, we're experimenting to see how this rolls out and what we need to tweak. We're going to stick with this for now and gather some data. Please leave your feedback below!

Great feedback. Please keep it coming!

Was there a reason for removing the number of instructables from below avatars, or is it a bug/unexploited feature?

mikeasaurus (author)  Kiteman2 years ago

This info is now available when you mouse over the avatar!

It shows how many times the person "Likes" not "Liked".

Ah, another feature that does not work well on a touch-screen device...

First time using the site with a keyboard device since the update...

I can bold, italicise, underline and add links or videos, but where are the options for sub & super script? Or for special symbols?

For special symbols you can take a look at my Instructables Enhancer, which, withunder, brings back the rich editor where the special symbols and sub & super script etc still are.

Sub and superscript might be a while, they were a feature that many people used as a novelty instead of for mathematical functions. Ditto, for special symbols. I know there's a legitimate case for them, but we're working on adding some more functional formatting options like numbered lists and quotations first. Stay tuned!
