Editing possible after publishing? Answered

I really think there should be a FAQ for such basic questions, but I couldn't find one sooo...

Wondering if it's possible to edit your instructible after you publish it?  Or is it possible to retract it (delete or unpublish)?

yes, you can edit your instructable after publishing and even after it is entered in a contest.. you can also delete or unpublish an instructable if it is not entered in one of the closed contests. Please refer to the FAQ here...


"Can I edit my Instructable after it's entered in a contest?

Short answer: YES!
Long answer:
You can make any modifications you want to an Instructable that's already entered! We get so many entries that there's absolutely no way we'd be able to police it even if we wanted to - but it's never something we want to discourage.

Improvement is always a good thing as far as I'm concerned. :)"

There is an ible for how to use the editor, but it doesn't include the answer to your question. You should comment on it that it would be nice to add that info.

For now, click the edit button in the top right corner of your ible, make the changes you want to make, and click save. Those changes will automatically update your ible to the public. If you want to unpublish, click publish and then you'll see the unpublish button.
