Two Bugs: (1) Delete confirmation dialog doesn't work and (2) I can't republish my instructable. Answered

Bug #1: I wanted to make a change to my instructable and I accidentally pressed the "Unpublish" button. I clicked Cancel in the pop-up, but it still unpublished it.

Bug #2 Now I'm trying to republish, but I'm getting a 401 error. I've tried logging out and clearing my cookies and cache. I've even tried logging in via a different browser, so I think it's a bug in the application.

My instructable is at https://www.instructables.com/id/Nachos-Frutales/. That still seems viewable by anyone with the link, but it's status is unpublished in my account, and it also doesn't show up in recent posts (e.g. https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/category-food/?sort=RECENT). Can you republish Nachos Frutales?

This is the exact error I'm getting:

ERROR 401: edit object EVF4EEXH4AFSTRT -
ERROR 401: edit object EVF4EEXH4AFSTRT

It has to do with a comment on the Instructable. It won't be able to be republished unless the problematic comment has been deleted. If there are other specific cases of this, please reply to this comment with a link to the Instructable and I will take care of it :)
