Instructables: question - websites Mon, 24 Apr 2017 03:32:44 PDT BLOX v1.01 why is there no 'random instructables' button? oragamiunicorn I just thought it would be nice to be able to get a random instructable, it seems there was the option in the past, via explore, but no longer.  Alternatively does anyone know a way of doing a google search to get a random page within a site?
