I am having a problem with the search feature and the log-in. I log in to my account and then search for something. When I choose the instructable or question I wish to view and it loads I am no longer logged in. I log back in and it navigates me back to home page and then I search again. Again, it shows me not logged in and asks me to log in. Repeat over and over and same results. Was wondering if this is just with me or anyone else having this problem?

Just a glitch that i found. might work on your accounts but it defiantly works on my account. make a new account and make its user name the same as your older account but put a plus sign (+) at the end. now try to go onto your new accounts profile and it will take you to your old accounts profile. this is crazy and even though both accounts are unconnected it still works. i think it might be because in the search bar at the top it reads the + sign as something else so it leaves it out and takes you to your old accounts profile.

I have noticed that the voting system seems messed up. So I can vote for a ible, then shut down the tap, reopen it, and come back to the same ible I voted for, and it says that I didn't vote for it! So I can do this again and again and again... Is it supposed to be like this? Does it give a legit vote every time I hit the 'vote' button? Is it not voting at all? Help is appriciated!

Ryry2011 and I were playing Firefight on Halo Reach, and Ive never seen this happen before. I killed a Jackal and it dropped the beam rifle, It stood straight up on its barrel and wouldn't fall down. I tried a grenade, bunting, walking at it. I couldn't pick it up either.

Hi, I was wondring what is wrong with a ipod touch 4g that suffered minor impact trama (no cracks on lcd or screen). When you press the lock button, the screen turns on, but it has a lot of white thin lines going down it and the picture looks distorted. You can unlock it, but it still has the lines and the screen is still distorted. Can you tell me the physical problem and solution please?

I'm new at posting video instructables. In the required box that says "embed video code", does that mean the URL of the video that I have posted on Youtube, or something else? When I enter the URL and click SAVE, it erases the URL. I can't publish it without something in the video code box. Help, please!

While trying to make Instructables with the Editor, I have come across two glitches (if this is not the place to report bugs and errors, please inform me).1. The text boxes for the Intro and the Steps editors refuse to let me copy/paste anything into them. The pasted text appears for a split second, then disappears.2. The same thing happens with links. I type in a URL and the text for the link, press OK, will show up for a split second then disappear.I hope this helps to make Instructables a better place.

The Robot seems to have a problem. Whenever I comment on the questions page, the robot sends me my comment in E-Mail form as if someone else answered my question. But it's not my question at all, I just tried to answer someone else's question. I don't need to know what I just said. Is this normal or broken? *It happened last on monday the 18th so I don't know if it's been fixed or just being intermittent.

I was surfing Instructables as a "non-member" on our new laptop today, which doesn't have many passwords installed. The Answers side bar had a older question I'd previously responded to, so I followed the link...RE: this Answer thread:https://www.instructables.com/answers/i_want_to_use_the_same_preamp_circuit_of_the_65_f/My response with the schematic links was not present (added two or three days ago.) Several browser refreshes didn't matter. But it's certainly still visible on my normal computer. I'm drafting this bug report there...Both computers are running Firefox 3.0.6. I went back and checked the laptop a second time (was shut down between) and disabled Adblock Plus (I don't ible ads on my main PC.) But no dice, still doesn't display.

When I add the body of text for each step, hit save and go to the next step, it carries over my text from the first step. When I delete that and add the text for my next step, save and go back to check the first page, it's the second step's text there on the first step page. Gah! Finally, after 4 different days/attempts at it, I thought 'this instructable is simple enough, why not just cram the steps onto the first page and let the fine people scroll through my photos and figure it out on their own' but when I did that and hit 'publish' it gave me a warning that said "Before publishing your instructable you must add a description'. Wah! Frustrating! So I thought I outsmarted it, but it still won in the end.

Ok so I just made and ible and this happenedXD, I know its just a small GUI glitch but I think its funny. I actually made an ible that was unviewed yet favorited by one person but not by me (note my favorite button). The problem was soon solved but I still think its funny:P Cheers! KnutKnackebröd

Hey in my instructable Smart-Distance-Measuring-Tape-v2, I dont see the "posted on" date. I worked hard on this instructable and it din't get featured, so I commented on the clinic, where Ben Finio informed me about it. I think that may be a glitch and could be the reason why my instructable did not get featured.

While browsing sewing projects I noticed that the main image for each project was "drifting" downwards and sort of slowly cascading down. I went to the next page of projects and after approximately 30 seconds the same thing happened again. On two separate days the same thing has occurred, on multiple pages. Is this some sort of ad related action, or is it a glitch in the site? If it is an ad, it is a very inconvenient one that makes it nearly impossible to browse your otherwise excellent web site. As a side note, if you follow the pictures as they fall and click the picture it will take you to the right instructable... sometimes.

Sorry if this is in the wrong area, but the category was not really there (bugs), so I put it here. When ever I create a comment that is a reply to another comment, that first comment turns into a reply as well. Confused? Let me explain What it should be: (Comment Irrelevant): BLA BLA (Commenter1): OH that was G! (Commenter2[Me]): YAH, Right? What Happens: (Comment Irrelevant): BLA BLA (Commenter1): OH that was G! (Commenter2[Me]): YAH, Right? See what I mean? Any reply I make indents the original comment, making it look like another comment is being replied to when it is not, this also happens when there is no (Comment Irrelevant) comment! This also seems to happen on other computers, Macs at work and my home PC. Both of which are totally separate of each other. Is it a problem well known problem with instructables, or is it just a glitch with my profile. I see a comic book super hero in the making: Secret admin controls, given to an random user. He now has the power to make people reply to other people, and he is: Secret Admin Who Randomly Got Powers to Make People Reply Man!

I was going back through my instructable and found that some of the notes I had written were gone. I thought maybe I messed up and didn't save them so I reentered the text. When I previewed it again they were gone again. I've since tried the old editor, new editor, saving every time I make a tag and its hit or miss. It seems that if the image only has one note on it there is not a problem but as soon as you add more it doesn't work. I haven't been able to successfully add 3 notes to one image yet and it seems that it is random as to which 2 or the 3 gets to stay. This is my first instructable and as much as I love this site I don't know whether I want to go through the ordeal of making another article. Anybody else see this issue?

Today, i noticed 8 new emails. JOY! I have never gotten so many emails! Surely I must be beloved by all! Sadly, they were all from instructables. Oh well, I bet they bring good news! No. just comments. Lots and lots of comments. I wondered why I was notified, since I have never asked that they do so. I went to check my settings, and, will you look at that! I'm not supposed to be alerted when I receive a comment, because the box that should be selected should I want to receive said emails, is not selected! So, ibles, why are you telling me stuff I don't want to know?! UPDATE: The staff is aware of this, and asks that we be patient while they work on it. UPDATE 2: Rachel fixed it! Hooray! My inbox can be lonely and hungry once more!

My instructable "How to silence your critics" is not viewable under the search results or in the contest it is in. The only way that you can see it is if you go to my profile and click on it. Normally, I would just un-publish it and re-publish it, but it is in a contest so i can't do that.

Two problems: One, my latest instructable, https://www.instructables.com/id/Hanging-Candle-Holder shows zero views, yet it has comments and a 4 star rating. Who can get the views counter going? Two, sign-in. When I log on, I always check the "keep me signed in" box, but it never keeps me signed in. Every time I leave the site and come back I have to log on again. Does anybody have the wrench to fix that?

Question by crazyg | last reply
Hello. I'm new, and entered the Craftsman tool competition. I sent links to my 'beekeeping' friends/etc asking my friends/co-workers to consider voting for me. Two possible 'problems': 1) Several of my friends said when they went to the site, and clicked the "VOTE" button on my instructable, it didn't force/prompt them for login. It just 'voted' (showing the 'unvote' option)...but they never registered. I am wondering if these votes are hitting the books, for all users. I actually watched this on an PC of a guy who I work with, and he's using Internet Explorer (not Firefox)...so I told him to register his account, just to be sure the vote 'took'. 2) Last night, was on my laptop, and responded to some comments on my I-Ble. The comments posted under the account my GIRLFRIEND set up to vote for me SCHRISTY05. I had just booted the PC up...so did my laptop cache her account, or is it doing some sort of user detection by originating IP, or something? I'm sort of wondering if that's tied to question number one. One other glitch I noticed (just worth mentioning, probably not worth fixing)...is when building your I-ble...using Firefox...occassionally, the image notes from one image, will tranfer to another image (including the boxes, the comments associated with the boxes, etc).
