New I'ble single-step URLs are broken for steps 10 and later Answered

As Jamalam posted this morning, a new bug was introduced with the overnight feature rollout.  For published Instructables, the individual steps now have human-readable URLs of the form "https://www.instructables.com/<instructable-title>/step##/<step-title>/" (e.g., "https://www.instructables.com/id/Modified_Crib_for_Parent_with_Disability/step15/Attach-the-End-panel-Moulding/").  This is really nice.

Unfortunately, the server-side code which generates these URLs is buggy.  For two-digit steps (step10 and higher), the URL does not resolve correctly, reverting back to the intro step.  You'll see this if you follow the link above.

Thank you for fixing it, Rachel!  But you should thank The Jamalam, I think he noticed the bug first :-)

I bet it's a bug in a mod_rewrite (or similar) URL rewriting! Probably need [0-9]+ not just [0-9] in the regex!
