I don't know how to make an instructable Answered

So this isn't actually a "bug," but i really need help! This is my first instructable, and i have no idea how to make it! I don't understand.. so i write a step and then add another step, but what shows up in step two is exactly what i wrote for step one. Am i doing somthing wrong? No one else in my family can figure it out either. Also, how do i put pictures to each step? I don't know how to do any of this. I'd like to post one for the halloween challenge, but i don't know how.


mine doesn't work and im on google crome
how do i add another step?

You may have started a "slideshow" instructable.

When you clicked the "submit" tab, did you choose the left or middle of the three options?

Forum topic? That's on the submit tab as well - scroll down slightly and look to the left of the page.

i switched to mozilla firefox, and it all works now. thanks!

Hello. We've put some fixes up. Are you still having the same problems? Please let me know. Also let me know what web browser you're using. Thanks!

Is there anything else i can do? My friend and i made a costume for the halloween contest, which ends today. We really wanted to enter, but it still doesn't work..

You could send an email to service@instructables.com with some photos of the costumes, to prove they were ready in time for the contest.

Yeah i'm still having the same problem. I'm using Internet Explorer.

Okay thanks! So is there somthing i can do to fix the bug or do i just wait? I really appreciate your help!

Write your text in an off-line document (word etc), and then give your instructable another go (any text that disappears can be copy-pasted from your saved document).

You're the victim of a bug, so this is exactly the right place to post this.

Don't panic, you are doing nothing wrong.

To upload photos, there are buttons at the bottom of the box where you add your text, or you can upload them to your image library, and add them to a step later (click here to go to your image library).
