Major Java error on publishing Answered

In trying to publish instructable, I've run into the same error twice. It seems to publish anyway, but the return screen has three navbars each down and to the right of the one before, and they're followed by:

Please excuse me, that was very impolite! - javax.servlet.ServletException: javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: ServletException in '/common/layout_editor.jspx': ServletException in '/pages/edit/share_body.jsp': Arguments to 'pdfURL' do not match expected length 2. Then there's the word Exception followed by a whole lot of error text. It must be in your log.

I had a bunch of problems throwing errors with other stuff along the way, like adding image notes - which worked better in Firefox than in Chrome, though not flawlessly.

Hoping I still get into the contests. Thanks.

I get this too :


Instructables inception! An instructable within an instructable, within an instructable is just too unstable!

Whoa! That's really quite awesome :-/ This happened when you used Publish, or Share? Either way, would you be willing to post this as a separate bug report (it's hard for Staff to populate the bug-tracking database from embedded comments), including the URL of the I'ble you're creating, your browser and OS version?

This sounds like the same error reported here.

In addition to this posting, I'd suggest sending an e-mail to the "customer service" address (look at the bottom of the page, it's in an anti-spam graphic image) to let them know, so you won't be excluded from the contest.

Thank you - I got, like, six messages saying my instructable was entered in the contest. So something was working, even if it doesn't show up. Thanks!
