The Best Suggestion I can Make Answered

The biggest thing that bugs me about the Instructables site occurs to me every. single. time. I visit.  I can't be the only one. This can't be the first time this has been mentioned --- can it?

I know how to "fix" it, too, and I have done that on my end.  But still.

It seems I ALWAYS have to hit that "View All Steps" button.  EVERY.  SINGLE. TIME.

Yeah, I know I can login and change my settings. I did, and I do.  But the login cookie is set too short so it doesn't stick for long.  So I come, back from an email, and AGAIN-I have to go through the first step(s), HIT THAT G*#$&MN "View All Steps" button, GO  BACK THROUGH THE FIRST STEPS ALL OVER AGAIN AND TRY AND PICK UP WHERE I LEFT OFF.   Arguh.

There's this nifty thing called AJAX where you can have more steps loaded when you hit the bottom.  It's a bandwidth saver, but not a complete PITA for the user. All the good sites are doing it. And one is not.  This would be you.

Fix this, please.  Your traffic and conversions will increase.  I've hated this issue for long before I became a web designer.

Thank you, Instructables!

I don't have that issue unless I change computers, and then only the first time I do so.

What browser / operating system are you using? If this is a site issue, and not at your end, the developers will need to know.

+ a lot!

Either make the View-All-Steps-cookie stick or implement that infinite scroll.
