I just spent 4 hours writing up a really kick butt guide using the new editor.  I went to publish.  Published it.  

I had something like 15 steps written out, and then I had three.  Just three.  The rest were gone.  No idea why or how.

What happened is that I started writing in the "old" editor, but stopped three steps in before switching to the new editor.  Seems as if the system didn't like that.

Oh well.  Looks like I wasted four hours of my time.

We're having trouble with getting the new editor to play nice with our site. We're working on getting that up and running, but are still facing some problems. I'd suggest use the old editor for now, and save your work often.

For Josh (the OP), we've discussed your options already through service@. All errors can be emailed to service@instructables.com, if they relate to a JSON error from the new editor please know that we are working on getting that fixed as soon as we can so you can post again.

It happened AGAIN.

First in Safari, now Firefox. I luckily kept a word document this time around.

I would drop an email to service@instructables.com.

Include the current URL of the project, because they may be able to use their black arts, sorry, "database skills" to resurrect the lost steps.
