A instructable won't publish
Topic by jdbic | last reply
I have some problem with an instructable that i posted 2 days ago. when i view my own profile, it shows that i have 12 instructables published. Truth is, i actually have 13, when i count each one individually. this is kind of bizarre, because, i usually see a lot of comments and favorites for my other instructables, not including this one. can someone tell me what is going on, and can the instructables support team try to help?

Last night I published my instructable called "As Cute as a Button" Magnets. I noticed this morning it hadn't gotten any views, and I looked for it on "Recent Instructables" and in the Living section and could not find it. I unpublished and republished the instructable, but still it has not shown up anywhere in the "Explore" area. Is it just taking a while to get published or what?

I'm trying to enter the gardening contest. I've uploaded pics, click "publish", but can not proceed. I only see the publish image reminding me to add pics, which I already did. I've created two drafts of my entry, one in Firefox and one in Chrome browser. Same thing in both.

I've been trying to publish a project since yesterday afternoon. Every time I get the error message : Servers are busy. Please wait a few minutes and try again. See screenshot. When I click publish the message "Generating image" appears in top right corner. (screenshot). After a minute or so of "generating image" I get the error message. The project edits and previews fine... but won't publish. I am new to instructables, but my last project went through without a hitch. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help.

Greetings, I don't understand how one gets exposure after publishing an instructable. I published a product under the photography group. If I visit the group it does not show up. There are only 3 showing. I have to visit my "You" section to even find my project. I don't see how publishing in any area gets you exposure. Now, I'm not trying to grand-stand here. I'm not particularly overjoyed with what I produced but I would like to see some comments.

So I posted this instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/Mario-Mushroom-T-shirt-Recon/ 24 hours ago and I think it just showed up on the site. I still can't find it in recent at all, so I'm not sure if it's fully there yet. I know it probably just got stuck in the filters. So my question is; is there any reason it got stuck? Like is there something I can do to help my future instructables not to get stuck? Any feedback is welcome! Thanks!

I have completed the entry form; embedded the YouTube code in proper place. After logging into Instructables, clicking on You Page, the drop-down menu displays Drafts (1) ..., clicking on Drafts (1) a window displays my entry with a checkbox preceding the entry, I click checkbox then click on the (publish) link and a new window appears that has three tabs. Current tab is Edit. Clicking on Publish fogs the page and the window returns to Edit. I have a Title and have placed a description as well. There is no alteration tried that ends with publication. If I click on preview - the proper video appears along with a Comment. I have been attempting various methods to publish since Friday, March 29th, including changes in browsers, and computers. I am stumped. I have finally answered my own question: One needs to place something in every box, i.e., Description, embed, and a graphic image. And place Tags. Then depress Upload Files. At that point it was self explanatory. Sometimes I am unable to see the tree in the forest. Maybe this may help another.

This has happened to me several times. I will publish and Instructable but it will not show up on the site under recently published Instructables in the same category. Not right away, or even a few hours later. Other projects will show up in the list of recently published afterward but mine still doesn't appear. It might take a day or two before it appears and then when it does, it appears in the original chronological order behind newer projects, as though it had been there all along. However, it was just kind of in limbo without any or many page views. It is still available if people have a link to it, through subscriber feed, or links that I send to others, but otherwise it just doesn't show up. I was just curious if it was just me and if I had done something wrong in the publishing process. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it all right. I've got a few of these under my belt but I'm certainly not immune to user error.

I'm trying to publish a video instructable, every time I click on the Publish tab it goes back to the Edit tab without publishing or saying there is something wrong etc. I've tried with text and without text, i've added a thumbnail image. Not sure what else to try.

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.

Is there a way that I can do one of these two things 1. Publish my instructable so that others can see it, but can't find it on search (I want to send my in progress instructable to my friends to edit) or... 2. Allow another user to edit my instructable Please Help! <3 Buzz

Question by Andrew_48 | last reply
I recently created several Instructables from some of my youtube tutorials, and was surprised to find that they didn't hit the "recent" list. After some investigation I noticed that nearly all of them had a publish date of several days earlier than I actually published them which is causing them to show up so far down the recent list that they are unlikely to ever be seen. Seems like they are all two days early. Everyone of my published instructables listed as Nov 19, 2014 was actually published today Nov 21, 2014. Infact the 19th even pre-dates the creation of some of the video content.

Hi, I am having a problem trying to publish a collection. When I hit publish, I get an error message that says "Opps, something went wrong!". If I click the x on the message the message goes a way but the Publish Your Collection pop up stays with a cursor that spins forever. Please look at the screenshot for reference. Here is as much information as I can provide. Collection id is OYNUVW5IAWDJBHYU, currently listed as a draft collection. Slackware Linux 14.1 Firefox 31.7.0 Chromium 43.0.2357.130 (64 bit) https://www.instructables.com/editCollection/OYNUVW5IAWDJBHY The steps to reproduce this is: Select You -> Drafts Find my Collection and press draft (url above). Press Publish Press Publish on Choose Cover Image pop up. I get the error message.

Is there a way to edit an already published ible so that it doesn't keep getting autosaved as changes are being made. I can just imagine somebody loading one while I've got a paragraph all in pieces figuring out a better way to word something. I know you can unpublish something, but would that cause it to lose all its comments and views?

I am unable to publish my instructable which is saved in draft, even after clearing browser data and cache. I tried with google chrome as well as firefox and I am facing problems in both. My instructable is about Home-made Pasta and today is the last date for entering Pasta contest. Already sent a mail to service at instructables and got a suggestion to post a forum topic so that somebody can help. Please see the screenshot attached

I'm not trying to complain or make an issue, just thought I'd put it out there. I am having issues posting my latest I'ble. Everything's fine up until I hit the "Publish" button. Nothing happens, no error, my browser doesn't attempt to do anything. I'm working from a Desktop. I tried clearing my cache, cookies, history, etc. I also tried on Chrome and FireFox. I know you guys will get this squared away soon. - Adam

I just finished building a RepRap Huxley, and I took time lapse video of each build day. You can see everything on my blog post here. Instructables is a kind of showcase for my work and I was wondering if it would be appropriate to publish each video (there are four) as a step in an instructable. I didn't design the Huxley, and it would be difficult to reproduce my results just from watching the videos, but I did build it myself. That's why I can't decide if I should post it. I wouldn't want people to think I posted build instructions for the whole thing. So what you you think? I would love to get the opinion of some higher-ups.
