Why is knex a popular subject? Answered

Everybody tends to post slideshows is it because its apparently fragile and not for instructables or are they just lazy?

What happened to Instructables?

I've been away a while, and now that I'm back, I see a lot of purported instructables that are nothing but slideshows of finished projects with no instructions, usually with links to other sites, most of which are selling the plans or instructions.  Has Instructables totally changed, or have I misunderstood what it's about all this time? :(

Imagenotes Now Work in Slideshows

Imagenotes now work in slideshows. This is especially cool for highlighting stuff in your workshop slideshows. For now, this only works in new slideshows -- adding imagenotes to your old ones doesn't work.See this one for an example:

Slideshows in forum topics

Zachninme put together this sweet way to embed slideshows in forum topics. I'm posting it because it requires HTML in the body of the text, and only admins can do that.What do you think? Is this something you would use? The images in the Slideshow below are from this forum post. They are not from an existing Slideshow.Show/Hide Slideshow

My gripe with the new I'ble classification system

Okay, so I know there is another conversation about this, but well I can't find it... so I'm going to give my 2 cts worth I know that recently the site has been re-vamped with a new Instructable submission classification, which, yeah okay I think has it's pro's and cons I'm personally abit infuriated with itbut well... I'm not going to just makea complaint and then not suggest a resolution Anyway... The single picture I'bles showcasing someones creation are a good idea (to an extent) but, I wonder if perhaps It's being advertised the wrong way? take for example This I'ble I think the posters sweets look brilliant, and I think that they may not know just how to do a step by step Instructable... but I have been noticing alot of pictures with very little write up etc... could we therefore in the welcome email that the Wonderful Robot sends link people to an I'ble emplaining how to post an I'ble, which includes a which classification suits what type of I'ble (If people at HQ are busy I don't mind helping) I don't know... I'm just finding it infuriating that there are alot of I'bles being created which don't include alot of content... Don't get me wrong I'm not saying thease people shouldn't post their creations... but I think we have to perhaps educate people as to how the system works... I dont know, it could perhaps be worth trialling it for three months or so, and if it makes no difference then bin the idea... but who knows, it maybe a step in the right direction?

"no-show" bug: Slideshow not displaying images

My slideshow has the "no-show" bug: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Billboard-that-Ruined-Christmas/  FYI: it seems to be the result of saving the slideshow and the slideshow not displaying the latest saved version of the pictures. For example in the slideshow mentioned above, I saved it before uploading any pictures. In past slideshows, I've made a slideshow, uploaded images, saved it and uploaded more pictures, re-saved it, and had the slideshow not display any pictures beyond those uploaded before the original saving.

Slideshow isn't working

Lame Slideshows

The increased visibility/accessibility of the "slideshow" option seems to have resulted in a large increase in the number of useless/non-instructive/incomplete/spam/whack-a-doodle postings. I'm tired of wading through heaps of crap just to find real, honest-to-goodness Instructables: step-by-step instructions for making/doing things. I have no beef with the slideshow format itself; it is quite appropriate for some projects, but the content has recently been predominantly junk. I regard it as littering up the site and polluting the "mission" of Instructables. I'm just grumbling here, as I have no real suggestion for a solution, except that perhaps the standard for approval of postings needs to be higher.

Where are the slideshow controls?

Slideshows used to have "pause" and "play" controls under the large image. They seem to have disappeared. Or are they just hiding under the advertising on the right of the page?

A comment on slideshow option...

Is there a way to shut off the slideshow option and see it like the rest of instructables? It seems to be slow, clumsy and eye-iritating to the point that it's not worth fighting with to look at. Feel free to disagree and post your opinion.

I know this has been asked before, but the solution was "Click the image and start typing" which didn't work. I'm sure you all know what I mean when I say the grey subtitles, they are like image notes exclusive to slideshows (they are NOT squares which you hold the mouse over to read though)

Theres no delete button for slideshows

The other day I was trying to delete a slideshow, just one problem, there's no button for it. rtty21 has the same problem. I did manage to "delete" it (it doesn't show up in my unpublished list) by removing all photos and the text from every box nevermind, I though I did. I shoved it into my private folder first and its still there.

Slideshow not working

My slideshow isn't displaying when I open it, even though all other slideshows do. I'm using Firefox 3.0.1 with Adobe Flash Player 9.0.124.0 on Windows XP SP3. What's going on? Do I need to wait for the publishing process longer? I know it's not a loading problem because it says done in the status bar. When I hover my mouse over it, it just says:(in gray){Movie not loaded...}{About Adobe Flash Player}(takes you to Adobe site)

Slideshow does not display images

The slideshow I posted a few hours ago does not display the images. There is a thumbnail image that I can see from the Instuctables tab in my profile, but the actual slideshow has no images, just the text block. It seems like it may be the same issue that mrcrumley reported a few days ago. I am using IE8 & Flash 10 on XP SP3, but others have checked for me using a variety of other browsers, and report the same problem.
