Is it allowed for me to make guides in which I show the winners of past contests? It is something I would love to do, but I don't know if it is allowed. Who knows???

What is a Guide?

When I accessed Instructables this morning, I saw a new tab on the Explore page, "guides". When I select the link, only one thing shows up -- something about LEDs from Randy. It looks like these are meant to separate out collections of I'bles from Groups/Forums. Are they "staff only"? Or in beta? The Submit page doesn't have a way to create a Guide (yet?).

Guide not appearing in . . .

The guide I published on Friday night/Saturday morning ( shows up on my member page, but it doesn't show up either in search results or on the recent guides page.  What gives?  I know stuff can get stuck in the filters, but it's been quite a while and there seems to be no change.

Help with a Guide?

I made a guide, but I cannot figure out how to put instructables in it. Help?

Question by freeza36   |  last reply

Guides are different!

I've just released a new version of the site. The main difference is in how Guides are handled. We've changed them so the Instructables referenced in them are linked directly, where previously the Guide simply contained links in the text. Aside from allowing any updates made, or changes of picture, to be immediately picked up, this change also lets Guides be created more easily.  It's also a prerequisite for another feature we're preparing… which I can't tell you about quite yet!

Guide to RC? Answered

So don't tell me to go and buy a small RC car, and hack it. I want to know how to MAKE one! Like, totally MAKE! Where can I find out where to make a simple 2-4 channel RC thingermabob with a range of about 50 feet? I just don't get it, everywhere I look, they make these huge units. My helicopter is 6 channels and the circuit board is no bigger than 2x2, and only has 2 IC's on it. Why can't I find instructions for some small and simple like the circuits you find in RC car! What about Zip Zaps! Their circuit boards are tiny, and work better then the huge circuits you find online! Thx!

I saw the new feature of making a guide. so I click, type in title, write description, add images, & clicked save & add instructables.

Then I go to published tab, go to guides, & it shows my profile page (when you go to You). PLEASE FIX IT!!!! I GOT 259 FAVORITES & SUBSCRIPTIONS THAT I WANT TO ORGANIZE INTO CATEGORIES!!!!

Instructables Guide Suggestions

I recently found out that you can't make a guide unless you are a member of the staff, and for good reason, if they allowed anybody to make guides, there would be an awful lot of lame guides out there. But some people have some very good ideas for guides, and don't have the power to make them. So this is the place for those guide ideas. If you have a good suggestion for a guide, post it here and it might just inspire an Instructables staffer to make one about it.

Rc Airplane Guide

I have been thinking about building an R/C airplane. Here are the specifications I need. L:3ft W:4ft H:6in ( 15 with prop and landing gear Engine: Chain saw motor Prop: 12in Control surfaces: 2 ailerons, elevator I don't know anything about R/C and here are my questions: 1.) How do you assemble an R/C system? 2.) What is needed to run 4 servos(3 control, 1 throttle)? 3.) Where should I buy stuff? 4.) What else should I know? I know how to connect servos to an air frame and everything, but I need to know how to connect a full R/C system together( receiver, servos, battery, etc.). Any help? Please. P.S. My air frame will be, a wing, a wooden dowel going to tail, tail, motor and muffler. I used this design because I have no weight added other than required materials.

Hi, I am new to instructables and eager to share some of my articles on the site. I have a guide which i ready to be uploaded. After I enter all of the content, images and a video, I click "Save & Add Instructables". Then I get to a page that searches by the title of my article. According to this guide ( I should be able to select an article related to my topic and "ou can add that project to your guide. Just navigate to the project you want in your guide, scroll down to where it says "Add to a guide: (your guide's name)" Then click add." I have been browsing for long time and can't find that "Add to guide" button. I have tried in both FireFox and Chrome. Can someone help me?

New Guide Feature?

I think that there has been a new feature added to Insturctables, Instructable guides. I assume that their main purpose is to make a list of similar Insturctables for easier viewing of related Instructables and to find other Instructables that you might be interested in based on ones that you like.

Hitchhikers guide to.. The Earth!

So here's the idea. I've been thinking how cool it would be to do a collaboration and create a giant travel guide. But not just an ordinary travel guide, one written by all instructables members.We have enough people on this site that we could get a pretty good start on it. I think the idea would spread fairly quickly. For example, I would write a brief something or other about my state (North Carolina), and then a full length guide for Boone, the university town that I live in. I would include basic information like population, size, etc., and also where I like to eat, what kind of tourist attractions are here, why ASU beat Michigan, etc. Some one else could add to what I wrote, and someone else could add a guide for the Charlotte/Denver area, and so on. For another state/province someone would just add a new step, etc. I realize it wouldn't be an Instructable, in the strict sense, but it would be helpful nonetheless. Not to mention we could have a lot of fun with it.What do you all think? What do the Instructables staff think about something like this? (In light of the fact that this is not a step by step guide to any one thing)Let the discussion begin. =)
