Newly Published Limbo
This has happened to me several times. I will publish and Instructable but it will not show up on the site under recently published Instructables in the same category. Not right away, or even a few hours later. Other projects will show up in the list of recently published afterward but mine still doesn't appear. It might take a day or two before it appears and then when it does, it appears in the original chronological order behind newer projects, as though it had been there all along. However, it was just kind of in limbo without any or many page views. It is still available if people have a link to it, through subscriber feed, or links that I send to others, but otherwise it just doesn't show up.
I was just curious if it was just me and if I had done something wrong in the publishing process. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it all right. I've got a few of these under my belt but I'm certainly not immune to user error.
