How to fix error in title of my instructable? Answered

I recently submitted my first instructable, "Easy But Addicting Garlic & Butter Snack Mix".  Before publishing it I spell-checked it twice and made good and sure that there were no typos or mispellings.  It has now been published, and there is a GREAT BIG TYPO in the title!!!  It appears this way: "Easy But Addicting Garlic & Butter Snack M&hellip".  This is not how it was submitted, and when I click on the entry the title appears just fine; it is only in the main page of Snack Food Contest entries that it appears wrong.  I have submitted 2 emails to the instructables team but keep getting automated responses that are of no help.  I can't seem to fix the problem in "edit" from my account, as it appears to be fine when I view it that way.  How did this happen, and how do I get it corrected?  Help!!

I did solve the problem...my title was too long. Thanks for all the interest and help!

That's not a bug. Your title is too long to fit with the thumbnails on the browsing pages, so the text is cut off at a fixed number of characters, and the remainder is replaced by an ellipsis HTML entity (…).

You could make your title shorter.
