Instructables

It would help if we had some actual furry instructables to add to the group. If you find one or make one, lemme know, and I'll add it. Generally anything related to the fandom is what I'm looking for.

No provision on my instructable to add a step!

I have posted a new instructable, but when I went into edit mode, to add a new step, there is no provision for doing so: Here's my instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Quickly-Field-Estimate-the-Weight-of-a-Stan/ I tried using Internet Explorer 8, Opera 12, and Mozilla Firefox 23, but to no avail. This is the first time this has ever happened with one of my instructables. And please, don't hesitate to be verbose with your answer, as others on this forum have posted the same problem, and the posted answers are not helpful at all. For example, others have answered "... click the add step button..." when the post indicated there was no add step button, or "... maybe the instructable was not set up as a step-by-step instructable" and simply left the problem still hanging there.  Hey guys, these are not complete, problem resolving answers. And problem repetition (with lack of suitable answers) does clutter up our help section. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, shastalore

Can't Fully Add Instructables to Our Group

Hi there instructable wizards! I'm the admin for a somewhat new Instructables group and we're having trouble adding our Instructables to our group. We found two ways to attempt to add an instructable to a group - Go to the group page (in our case The Rabbit Hole) and on the right hand side press the +add your Instructable Or - Go to your Instructable and on the middle right there is a Add Instructable to "Group" button Either way, if someone uses these options, as one of the admins, I get an email saying that a new add request has been submitted, but then when I follow the link to the admin page, there are no pending instructables to approve. I've tried this many times on Windows 7 in FF, IE and Chrome...also tried it on Linux in FF When I visit the URL I see the image included here:   It says 12 items found, displaying all items. 1 But willschm and another member of our group have already submitted new projects that should be in the pending section Also noticed that something considers that I have added an Instructable to the group because I can't attempt to add it again from the group page thanks fro the help!

embed youtube video into instructable

Hi This may sound odd, as I have already done it before but can't for the life of me recall how I did it... I want to embed a YouTube video into a new instructable I am working on.  I have the link and embed code etc, but don't see an option to add this. It is 112MB file, so not going to upload a file, but link it with the embed code as I have before: https://www.instructables.com/id/Unmanicure-How-To-Make-Nasty-Nails/ I am probably missing something obvious, but any ideas?

Thanks, canucskgirl EDIT: Having a way to see how many times our instructables have been downloaded would be nice also!!! :) Maybe this info could be added to our Instructables on the "Stats" tab just above the "referrers"??? :)

Instruct a wave.

Instructables can be much better. Powered by google wave. after i get my server set up with google wave i will try to help instructables by building extentions to help the whole thing work. Installing instructable found @ https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-install-Google-Wave-to-your-server/ first instructables would need to install the wave extention to openfire and send me an email at james@jamesm.com.au when thats done for me to start working, making extentions. Installing instructable found @ https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-install-Google-Wave-to-your-server/ robots made: Rossy, translater, spelly, spell checker, bloggy, alows waves to be on https://blog.instructables.com/ blog? please can still use wave, robots i will make: Sally, alows people to sell there projects using paypal, not made yet, hard, instructables robot, will be a hidden group that would include the robots above, hardest extentions i will make: JW, uploads video(mp4, flv, avi, ect), music(mp3, avi, wav, ect), images(jpeg, jpg, gif, ect), not yet, easy, swf view, alow swf files to be shown on instructables, not yet, easy Questions... will this disable instructables for a little lime? NO, to annoying. will we need to resumbit our instructables? NO that would take forever, robots job. what would instructables like this for? NO SLOW FLASH, faster to load, interactivity, save space Facts. Addsence will be getting instructables more $$ by more users. members can make group projects. members in an area can organize an event. eg maker-fair (please come to australia) members can add any files into waves. (some files may need a new extention just made for them) I will be updating this alot when I think of more so come back soon. Extentions found: Canvas -- bad when i saw this -- vectoreditor -- this has a little prob with text. like/dislike, html_gadget. Extentions i'm working on: JW player uploads and plays videos. (still needing some more development) Bot_protecter. simple editable div can not be recorded by bots eg. email addresses. (NOSPAM WAHOO) i will add all the xml files to a wave for me to create installers and add them stright into the instructable robot i am also working on. How will the gadgets be called without the xml file to add manualy? ok so if i can i will alow the instructable robot to change [canvas] [video] [like] [html] into the gadgets. the video first ask for a file and then embed that video with the jw player and lisenced if donations go towards that later in this project. and for the bot_protecter it will just pick up email address and add them into the safe gadget i made or get called by [safe]. theese can be shown as plain text by {canvas} that will show as [canvas]. if you want to see what some gadgets are goto http://jamesm.com.au/blog/ just remember that you neeed an account untill they alow guests to look at waves it is a smart way to embed the waves that i will make better when i can and this is not installedd on my server because i need to update the java. cheers and happy waven.

Option to Add Images to Video Instructables

I would like to see images enabled on video instructables, as well as having the option to place the video anywhere in the text rather than being locked at the top of the page. An image or screenshot from the video can really highlight an article or video description and make it look much nicer. The only option currently to have both video and images in the same article is to make it a step by step Instructable. Doing so is awkward when all the instructions are provided in a video, but then you're required to somehow add multiple steps to the article which is really just a video description. As an example of how an image can really add to the attractiveness of an article based around a video, first look at this instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-an-Airsoft-Machine-Gun-from-a-Soda-Bottle/ Then at this article built around the same video on a different website that allows both image and video embedding: http://nighthawkinlight.wonderhowto.com/blog/make-bb-machine-gun-from-soda-bottle-0133352/ In the second article I am able to instantly draw interest to the video with a series of some of the better screen grabs. Even more importantly, while a video is able to provide all the necessary instruction for most things, an image is still the best format to provide a good long look at a mechanism or detailed area, rather than having to pause a video. Even if we were only allowed one still image to be embedded in a video instructable that would be good enough for me. It would at least allow a nice high resolution picture of the finished item to be displayed near the video so that as the viewer is watching each step they can glance over and get a crystal clear look of what the process is building up to. When you're five or ten minutes into instructions it's easy to forget exactly what the finished product is supposed to look like.

Instructables on shopify

Good evening,  I've recently been trying to purchase something on the instructables shopity store. If in understand the way this website works is that each shop adds clients to their customers list so that they can browse your products.  My question is : Is there a link I missed?  What can I do to see products online?   I'm very confused about how this website deals with customers when the point is to sell products to the great audience of the internet.. I would appreciate a simple answer with instructions on how to access the instructables store. Thank you !

The Instructables App

I believe there should be an instructables app for the ipod touch/ iphone. The app would be a simplified version of the website; users could veiw featured ibles, guides, contests, and their "You" page. Iphone users could make and publish and entire ible because of the camera. Users could also use the "search" bar(obviously). If any of you have any ideas or suggestions post them when you comment below. If enough people comment in favor of this idea we may be able to make it happen. To "sign" this "petition" just comment on this forum saying that you agree with this idea. At this time you can also add any ideas to improve this app.

Instructables on the BBC.

"We are all makers and hackers"So declares the BBC headline published today.Make, sites like Instructables.com and video shows such as Systm strive to break projects down into manageable chunks to show people how easy it can be to create stuff.You can read the full article and see video from the Newcastle Maker Faire at the link below, as well as a PDF file on making your own Multitouch display.There is also the option to add your own comments.Please, sensible stuff only - the comments are moderated, so "W00t Instructables" would waste time, and not actually appear on the website.Link to article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7961760.stm

Instructables Store

Unfortunately we've closed down the store for a while. You can get t-shirts and other goodies through us by winning contests! ---------------------------------------------------------- We very recently opened up the Instructables Store! Right now it's still very early and only has a few items in it, but we are going to be expanding it a bit more soon. Currently available are T-shirts, packs of Sugru, and a couple of cardboard kits. Next to be added are more cardboard animals for construction. After that we'll be looking to add a variety of very limited edition items. It will be experimental and we hope to learn a lot from it as well as offer up fun and unique items to all of you. Again, that's the new Instructables Store! Thank you.
