Almost finishing a long instructable I got repeteadly the following error message:

There's been a problem updating your
       SyntaxError: JSON.parse: bad
             character in string literal

I am using Windows XP
Navigator: Firefox 12.0

I can not edit the instructable to finish and publish it.

Thanks for reporting this, I've filed a bug report.
See my note above. I think the server side code needs to do filtering of I'ble and step titles to make sure they are URL-compliant (i.e., only the US ASCII character set).

Are both you the same person?

Thanks for your concern.
No, they're just both called Mike :D

Michael, I understand that the problem is not prioritary, but (almost?) all programation languajes have a function to translate a list of characters into another list:

In example

url_address = translate(title_string,"áéíóúüñÁÉÍÓÚÜÑ¡¿","aeiouunAEIOUUN--")

Add all US ASCII characters not allowed for urls, and it is all. That so simple code line would solve the problem forever.

Thanks for your concern!

Thanks for the response, Mike. The problem was fixed some minutes after my post.

I'm having the same problem. I think it's because I used proper quotation marks instead of foot and inch marks. Is there someone who can delete the instructable so I can start over? It's the one on the Micro mini garden shed. Very simple, only three steps and three pictures.

Maybe you should put a new bug (you -> Create -> Bug report). Otherwise your comment can last unnoticed.
Thanks, since it was exactly the same report, but on a Mac, I thought I'd just leave a message here first. I opened it in Safari, was able to delete the steps and start over in Firefox. All is well now.
