As I view you "master-of-chaos has not posted any instructables yet..." You don't mean the other forum post do you? If you're getting Java errors, I would suggest that you download the source and forward to the site administrator(s) if it seems to contain errors. w/ref deleting your instructable: try again later if it's just page error(s).

Can you Edit your unpublished instructable?
Is the delete option there (it'll be in a box on the lefthand side)?

Hey lemonie,
instead of making another question that's been asked tens of times before, I thought I'd ask here: how does one delete an unpublished instructable?

I've gone through a fair number of the answers from before and they all appear to be for the old editor, I haven't been on for a number of months and now I'm back on I can't seem to find this delete tab on the right hand side of the editting window.
Thanks.

Kryptonite, was your I'ble a real Instructable, or just a slideshow. We've just confirmed that there is a bug in the interface when editing a slideshow. It should have a left-hand sidebar with the delete option, the way videos do, but that is missing.

Click "edit", and then look across the top of the edit-space. There's a tab that says "delete instructable".

Click it.

I think that's what Kryptonite is saying is missing on his unpublished I'ble.

That's certainly true; I have 'edit', 'private', 'publish', 'share', 'history' and 'see preview', but no delete...

Doesn't matter either way, it's not published so it's not important.

Would you mind posting this as a new bug report? When you do so, send a PM to Matt (StumpChunkman) with the URL to the unpublished I'ble so they can see exactly what you mean.

Hmm, I can't find your instructable to view, but as I suggested previously, try again, and if that fails download the source and report your problem (possibly an option under help but I haven't checked that)

Regards

I believe the reason is the people has it in the cache memory.
