Instructable edits do not appear in published version Answered

I have made and saved edits in the following instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Jigsaw-Puzzle-Light-Acrylic-Laser-Cut/

However whenever I vist the publish instructable they are not shown (I have done edits in other intructables and these have shown up, so I am not sure what is different this time).

This is what is published: https://prnt.sc/mi1o90 but this is what is in the edit and preview screens: https://prnt.sc/mi1o4s. You will notice that the 3rd and 4th bullets in the preview screen are missing from the published. I also have changes in the last step that are not reflecting.

I have cleared my cache, tried different browsers, networks and ISPs on different devices.

I have a few quesitons:

  1. Can anyone see the changes that I claim not to be able to see?
  2. If this is an issue, will unpublishing and republishing fix it?
  3. If I unpublish will I loose my "featured" status as well as the viewing stats?

Your help is appreciated.

Hello, I tried to edit my published instructable but it does not show up. (I left the flour out in my recipe). Could you please help. I would like my students to do this for an assignment this week.
Thank you

I have found that it sometime has to do with your cache. Try open and edit in an incognito or private tab and see if that helps. Sometimes the edit has happened but it does not show until you clear your cache.

I am seeing your Instructable is both live on the site and has been featured by one of our editors. Sorry you are having trouble finding it. Where precisely have you been looking for it?

I made an edit to my ingredients because I forgot to put flour in originally. Sometimes when I go to the website it shows up in the ingredients and sometimes it does not, the old ingredient list is there. I’m not sure why there is a difference and I don’t know what to do to fix it, When I choose edit the correction is there. Just don’t want people to try to make it without flour. :)

This is a caching issue in your browser. You can try holding down the shift key on your keyboard while simultaneously pressing the refresh button on your browser. This should do a hard refresh and fix it. Alternately, you can clear your browsers cache and cookies. This should also fix it.
