Author Options:

"add to this guide (paste urlString)" Answered

Is this a new feature, where everyone can add stuff to a guide, or is it a bug?

It appears above the Author box in Guides

That's a bug. Only the author of the guide should have access to that interface. Hopefully Staff (hi, Rachel!) will deal with it soon.

Still seeing it, but it doesn't function.

E.G add a URL and the orange banner says:
400 -- no instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/[blah blah blah]/

That's weird, I've been playing around for a while, going to different Instructables trying to find one that has this, logging in with different accounts that have different privileges, and I'm not getting that at all.

I do get a bar that has no information in it.  I'm in Firefox 3.6.12 though, what are you using?

Matt, if it's any help in tracking this down. The same data entry box appears at the very bottom of the "Staff:" box, for Guides only. I haven't tested whether it does anything, because I don't know how to remove something if I accidentally add it.

Baaaah! If you don't try it...how do you know if it's going to be any fun!

I figure if you manage to break something, it'll be more incentive for us to fix it...kekeke.

...or is that flawed logic?
