Newbie I tried many times last night to upload pictures to my library and had no luck. Watched a youtube video on the subject, but still no luck. Are there an instructable to show me what I am doing wrong? I am using a newer Mac. Are the pictures in the wrong format I was able to choose files . when I hit upload, nothing seemed to happen and the library was empty. The text I entered vanished into the unknown.

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.

Every time I come across an instructable and try to post a comment no matter how many times I click Make Comment nothing happens it will not post my Comment at all. I don't know if it is because the instructable is too old or what one said on the last posted comment 3 months ago, another was 8 months and the third one was 2 years ago. I just don't know why I can't make any comments. Please Help.

Well, long story short, I can't edit my collections at all. I get this 'error, something happened' screen and it doesn't matter what device or browser I use. I know this issue has been brought up before but it hasn't been worked on since. Hopefully a few more drops in the bucket will convince the techs to look into it or at least respond with 'we're working on it'.

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

Member nutsandbolts_64 reports: Uh, I know it's off topic, but I can't post anything BUT comments here. Yes, I am overemphasizing because I can't post a question or forum topic (and the like) so I have no other choice but to post a comment somewhere on the bugs section.

Trying to add Step 5 to https://www.instructables.com/id/Message-in-a-Chip/. The added step shows up in Edit mode and Full Preview mode, but not in the regular view after I've saved. If I try to click "Unpublish", it tells me I'm entered in a contest. Using Chrome Version 48.0.2564.116 m on Windows 7 Pro.

Hi, I managed to upload two pictures earlier on, but this does not seem to be working anymore. The pictures seem to be uploading, but they don't show in my image bank. Sadly, this means I've had to publish my paper wallet instructable as is, without much needed pictures :-( Also, the whole site appears to have slowed down to a crawl...

I cannot add a photo to my instructable at all. I've reloaded, cleared temp files, checked Adobe flash, etc. The box for adding photos/files drops too far down when I open it, and I can't access the buttons I need. What gives??? Windows 10, Chrome browser. I can't even add a screenshot here! Grrr!

Hello, I am in the win10 os, using chrome and MS edge. I believe I am a "PRO" member I use to find a instructable I want, depress the download tab, and I would get my PDF. Now, I go to the instructable screen Depress the download ang get a message Download PDF All Instructables are now available in PDF format for easy printing, sharing and offline viewing. What's up with that? Thank you

My customer has recently encountered a problem when trying to open most of their pdfs that they have been referencing for years on their pc. Reader has a popup box that says "Adobe Reader could not open 'file.pdf' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded I have tried various programs to recover/restore/repair them, they all say the files aren't PDF files. I have not paid for any recovery programs but would be willing to if they can demonstrate they can fix the problem first.

I have a Windows Vista Computer, and am using the Firefox browser. For some reason I'm not able to edit the Survival themed collection I have published. When I click on the edit button on its page, I get the error screen. I also can't add instructables to it directly from the page of the instructable I want to add. It keeps giving me errors, and I've tried several different instructables with the same results. The funny thing is, All my other published collections are still working fine. Can you please help me with this?

I don't seem to be able to follow contributors any more :( On my PC, I'm using I.E 10. I've cleared the browser cache, and explicitly added the instructables site to always allow cookies (which are turned on anyway). I've also logged off and on several times. If I click on a the follow button, it briefly displays the 'UNFOLLOW' option and the windows timer mouse icon, before reverting to 'FOLLOW' again. On my Android phone, I have the Instructables app. It allows me to follow someone, but does not add them to the list of people I already follow. Is there a limit on the number of people I can follow? I'm currently following 24 contributors. Can you help please?

Question by sabina delpinoh | last reply
I seem to be unable to change any of my settings. Either the page shows an error or nothing happens when I click to update. I have done all of the normal stuff like delete cookies and temp internet files. I still can't change anything. In the FAQ section there seems to be others having the same problem, but I am not seeing any fixes. Anybody have any ideas?

I thought in the past, I could update tags for the pictures and add tags when I hadn't put one in at upload time. Now I am unable to find a way to do this anymore. Is this a planned thing, or did something need to be dropped in order to do the update you all did? It would be nice, now that my library is over 600 pics, to be able to go directly to some of the early ones without having to spend a good 5+ minutes scrolling back to the start of the pack. And for those that are similarly tagged but not exactly the same, it would be nice to be able to update them so I could categorize them better under single tags. Thanks.

Question by woody.miki | last reply
Hi all, I'm currently in the process of creating my first step-by-step, and along with this messing things up for me, I am now unable to edit one of my steps. I haven't uploaded any pictures to it (yet), nor have I used any unusual characters (I think - I can see a preview of what the step would look like by going to 'full preview', so I screenshotted that, below). All the other steps function perfectly edit wise. When I try to select the step, I get the 'SyntaxError: Unexpected token' message, and it freezes the java interface. I am running Chrome Version 24.0.1312.57 on Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5. I can't provide a link to it, as it's not published yet, but if an admin can see my as yet unpublished projects, it's step 1 ('Go Forth and Gather!'). This is the url that is present, however, when the message appears, if it is of any use: https://www.instructables.com/id/edit/?instructableId=EWN0KQBHCV928LP#instructableId=EWN0KQBHCV928LP,stepId=SUMX8FLHCV928LO I am unaware as to what I was doing when it became uneditable - I had edited it multiple times, then moved on to write more steps. I then came back and was unable to progress. It isn't completely essential to me publishing the step-by-step; however, I would like to make a few changes. Cheers, S.

The new image note style where there are only 4 little dots in the corners of the image note is really hard to see, let alone if there are a few adjacent image notes (it's harder to see which is which), and let alone if the background is white or a bright color. i really don't like this new image not style. i liked the simple old yellow boxes the most. they were the best ever... also, the new way to view images on instructables is really uncomfortable. i have a few instructables with pages that have a lot of pictures, and now the pages are just endless. once again, the older way was much much better, if you ask me. please consider bringing them back.

Hey, I was wondering if you could bring back more formatting for us non pro users. Bulleting would be really nice, and make me make better 'ibles. As a long time member and contributer, since September '06, racking in 65,000+ views, I feel that I had earned those features, and having them taken away is kind of a let down... Don't get me wrong, I do not want to sound ungrateful, instructables is one of my favorite websites, perhaps you could add a few other features instead of taking others away? For example: A new features feed, alongside featured and popular, PRO activity. A quick glance at the recent feed shows that they are less common than featured... I'd pay for some extra publicity! Higher quality resolution images uploads Stock images: Pictures of common items maybe? Would save you some bandwidth as well. I'm thinking tea kettles, pots, pans, soldering irons, sewing needles, etc. Pro members could submit their own photos(, and if they pass through moderation,) every say, 10 images nets them another patch to give out! This makes it easier to make instructables, eliminating alot of the materials step potentially, and letting users access good, clear images with greater ease. These are just a few ideas, and replacing the standard features to the every day member. One more thing, God forbid, you take these ideas while retaining the standard features: I may just quit :P All in all, I am an instructables lover, just these new changes are slightly irksome. -- Jeremy

Is this just me or do others have the same problem? :- I am unable to change the keywords of a published Instructable via the 'Author Options' box. 'Categories' and 'License' show the dropdowns, but the 'Keywords' heading only has a small white box below it. I have tried this on 2 different machines with Firefox (currently 16), IE8 and Chrome portable, all with popup blockers / adfilter etc disabled. A different but similar issue: I've just discovered that I can edit keywords on the 'publish' page of my other Instructables and 'save' the changes, but not this one. See my comments below.

I can go to the home page and click the lins to get around but I can't do search. Anyone know if there is something wrong with insturctables?
