Having an error publishing Answered

I'm trying to publish an instructable but keep getting an error. I'm using Firefox and have tried from the edit page, the author tools, and from my "you" section. I suppose that's what I get for waiting for the last minute for a contest entry.

Another bug... Neither my initial post or my comment was shown as the last post on the Community page. I'm feeling like I don't exist! I was finally able to publish my Instructable but was too late to enter the contest. I think there are many far greater projects in the group already but it was the contest that got me to do the project and I'd like the sponsor to see that their prize lured at least one more person to write something up.

Hey zieak, Are things showing up for you better or are you still having trouble? We care about you and we know that you exist! Since you were having trouble entering your Instructable in the Light Up Your Ride Contest before the deadline, I've gone ahead and entered it into the contest. Your entry seems to have been delayed only because of technical difficulties on our end, obviously not your fault. Please let me know if you're still having any trouble. Sincerely, Noah

I have not noticed anything new. In fact, I noticed that my reply to my initial post did bump the post up into the most recent slot on the list of forums on the Community page. Thanks for tossing my project in with the others. There are some really great ones in there that make mine feel incomplete by comparison but it is nice to have it in the right spot!

This is still a bug, which hopefully Rachel or someone else will be able to fix. In the mean time, here's a workaround which should let you move forward.

Edit the URL (in the "address bar" of your browser) to remove the trailing string "?ALLSTEPS". You should get the URL https://www.instructables.com/id/EPTX9K9FNNKD5D9/ .

You've got your profile configured to add the "ALLSTEPS" modifier to every I'ble you look at. Now that Instructables generates the "summary of steps" business on every I'bles intro page, it may not be worth it to fully load all steps every time.
