Faves Answered

How do I return to instructables that I marked 'Fave?' There must be a way to filter or sort by 'fave.'   What is the point of it if I have to remember every one I wanted to go back to?  To remind myself that I liked it when I stumbled on it before?  Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

I am totally lost. I do not have a "stuff you like" section. Now I have to go back thru and try to find the particular item I wanted to work on. It took me hours the first time I found it.

Go to your YOU page and click on INSTRUCTABLES tab, then click FAVORITES.

Click You, then the Instructables tab. Under that there will be the choice for Favorties.

Hi. I have the same problem. When I'm not logged in there is a little 'fave' heart to click. But when I log in, the icon disappears. Help? Thx, Ariel.

See this thread, it has people mentioning similar problems, and solutions that work for them.

Thank you very much. That thread pointed me in the right direction.

I finally figured out Instructables doesn't play nicely with the Ghostery plugin on my MacOS/Firefox setup. I made a whitelist exception for 'instructables.com' in Ghostery - problem solved!

Mostly solved, anyway. I use Ghostery for good reasons, and it's frustratingly weird that Instructables can't cope with it. Ghostery is a featured add-on at Mozilla, and I've never been troubled at any other site...

...Anyhoos, the fave heart did come back after I disabled Ghostery on Instructables. ;)

Hmmm, I wonder if it is the Ghostery plugin for my FF on Win7 doing the same thing...

Here is a related question: how do I mark an Instructable as a Favourite? I can't find a link or button and I'm sure there must be one.

Thank you, that was helpful! Now I know where to look, and alas, it's not there. Might be a browser setting. I can see it in IE, but not in my regular browser.

For anyone that had the same problem as me, here is the answer. Click on 'You' in the upper right corner of the site page. On the 'You' tab, is a section called "stuff you like." Following that link will get you to your favorites.

I have that "problem" too. I have done what you suggested by going to the "you" page. No where on that page is a section called "stuff you like". I am soooo dissapointed. I should have just bookmarked all those projects! That fave button was useless.
