Random explore choice not working... Answered

I've cleared my browser and emptied the cache and when I choose Explore->Random off of the menu it tells me it can't find any instructables. Is this temporary?

So it isn't! The link is wrong, we'll get that fixed shortly. In the meantime, you can get the random sort by correcting the URL. The link gives you something like,

https://www.instructables.com/tag/type:id/&sort=random_5206

Change the & to a ? :

https://www.instructables.com/tag/type:id/?sort=random_5206

And you'll get a nice random output. (The number is there to make sure you get a different random sort each time, otherwise our caching servers would just give everyone the same page.)

This will be fixed in our next bug release, probably within a couple of days.
