Little fail of new page design Answered

When I enter in Instructables (many times a day) I have "RECENT" optionas level of selection;

As the default quantity of instructables by screen is 15 and I want more, I go to the end of the first screen and choose "30 per page" at the bottom left.

Then the systen reload the screen with 30 Instructables, but under "Featured" option

I propose the following actions:
  • Fix that problem (it is to say, when reload the page consider actual level of selection).
  • Save the last selection of instructables by screen (you know where).
  • If the new selection is the same that preceding, do not reload the page.
BTW, the new design is nice.

Piggybacking as I'm on the phone...

The little drop down selector closes itself when you tap on a link option, this only happens with the longer one including custom links, everything else seemed fine - as a note the mobile site is fairly useless, unless I missed an update, fine for browsing and allowing mobile search traffic but I couldn't get to my comments etc, the reason I like to pop in on the mobile. Also this comment box is freaking out the keyboard/screen... That may be AnySoftKeyboard, having issues. Xperia X10 stock browser Android 2.3...

Thanks killerjackalope for your concern. But I don't understand your explanation, a bit for my language limitation, another bit for my technical limitation.

The new version of the quick links disappears when you try and choose a link on the mobile browser. The mobile site doesn't work easily for checking your comments etc, it's good for browsing instructables...

That any better?

I was only posting here as it's the same update and making a new forum topic on the mobile is very hit and miss.
