How do I browse popular/recent instructables in all categories? Answered

I just visited the instructables main page, and I wanted to just browse some popular instructables from the last few weeks or so.  However, I can't seem to find a  way to do this.  From what I can tell, the main page seems to force me to browse only within a certain category.  Maybe I'm missing something.

How do I look at a list of recent & popular instructables?  Is there a way to browse without having to choose a category first?

Thanks!

Thanks! I also found this: click on a category, like "Food", and that brings you to the normal listing page. Then you can click on "All", then you can click on "popular" or "recent".

That's still a lot of hoops for something so simple. But at least there's a way.

If you choose to 'go pro' there is a 'short cuts' tab on the top of the page (I don't remember ever seeing it before I became pro) where in the settings section of your profile you can select 'recent Instructables'... I have it configured so that it gives me recent forum posts, recent i'bles and random i'bles

It's a handy little tab for browsing the site

On your profile page, go to Settings -> Customize. In the "Shortcuts" pulldowns, look for the "EXPLORE" section, and choose either Recent or Popular as you wish. -- Michael Kelsey P.S. I posted this as a reply to your forum topic, but it's stuck in the filters for some reason.

It works... that "Shortcuts" link on the top, next to "Inbox", now has a dropdown with those two links.

But why the heck aren't these on the home page to begin with? It's really boggling my mind.

On your profile page, go to Settings -> Customize. In the "Shortcuts" pulldowns, look for the "EXPLORE" section, and choose either Recent or Popular as you wish.

P.S. Bookmark those two links if you don't want to change your profile.
