"add to this guide (paste urlString)"

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

Can't Fully Add Instructables to Our Group

Hi there instructable wizards! I'm the admin for a somewhat new Instructables group and we're having trouble adding our Instructables to our group. We found two ways to attempt to add an instructable to a group - Go to the group page (in our case The Rabbit Hole) and on the right hand side press the +add your Instructable Or - Go to your Instructable and on the middle right there is a Add Instructable to "Group" button Either way, if someone uses these options, as one of the admins, I get an email saying that a new add request has been submitted, but then when I follow the link to the admin page, there are no pending instructables to approve. I've tried this many times on Windows 7 in FF, IE and Chrome...also tried it on Linux in FF When I visit the URL I see the image included here:   It says 12 items found, displaying all items. 1 But willschm and another member of our group have already submitted new projects that should be in the pending section Also noticed that something considers that I have added an Instructable to the group because I can't attempt to add it again from the group page thanks fro the help!

No provision on my instructable to add a step!

I have posted a new instructable, but when I went into edit mode, to add a new step, there is no provision for doing so: Here's my instructable: I tried using Internet Explorer 8, Opera 12, and Mozilla Firefox 23, but to no avail. This is the first time this has ever happened with one of my instructables. And please, don't hesitate to be verbose with your answer, as others on this forum have posted the same problem, and the posted answers are not helpful at all. For example, others have answered "... click the add step button..." when the post indicated there was no add step button, or "... maybe the instructable was not set up as a step-by-step instructable" and simply left the problem still hanging there.  Hey guys, these are not complete, problem resolving answers. And problem repetition (with lack of suitable answers) does clutter up our help section. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, shastalore

Hey People, In windows 7 You can add labels to the taskbar you know.

I have seen a few people disliking 7 Because the Icon is alone with no Label on the task bar, This is not big enough to deserve a whole i'ble but i will just make a topic about it. I will show you how to add back the labels next to the icons. Step 1 Right Click On your Windows Flag Step 2 Select Properties Step 3 Open the taskbar Tab Step 4 Locate the option "Taskbar buttons" Step 5 Change the setting "Always combine Hide labels" to "Never Combine" Step 6 Click apply Congrats!!! Now you have absolutely no excuse not to upgrade from Vista to 7 Now!

Unable to Edit Collection

I have a Windows Vista Computer, and am using the Firefox browser. For some reason I'm not able to edit the Survival themed collection I have published. When I click on the edit button on its page, I get the error screen. I also can't add instructables to it directly from the page of the instructable I want to add. It keeps giving me errors, and I've tried several different instructables with the same results. The funny thing is, All my other published collections are still working fine. Can you please help me with this?

Minor Bugs with New Editor

Hey i'bles! I'm on a Mac using Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. 1) When you are using bullets (unordered list), and try to copy text into a new bullet, it adds and extra space between the bullets. Item 3 was the text that I tried to copy into the bullet, and it adds too much space on the top and bottom. It's because when you copy text and paste it into a bullet (ordered list) it throws in an extra (NOT ) that is adding the extra unwanted space between bullets. Item 1 Item 2   Item 3   item 4 item 5 2) When you have a really long step, and you have to scroll down to edit your text, the text options editing bar gets shifted off-screen, and the regular buttons don't work. See picture. Only the buttons all the way off to the right work. The ones on the left that I need to use get grayed out. Nice job on the the new formatting options! Love the code button! Thanks!

"KEEP ON TASK" alert for ADHD 3rd grader

My 8 year old son, Finn, was recently diagnosed with ADHD/inattentive (what used to be called ADD).  He isn't hyper, he just can't focus.  He is in the 3rd grade and really struggling and wants to do better which is causing him no end of frustration.  He has been brainstorming a lot recently on what may help him and he had an idea. I've look around and can't find it off-the-shelf so I was wondering if anyone has good ideas on approaches to DIY build. Finn's idea was a pencil or pen which is pressure sensitive and detects if he stops writing and gets his attention with a flash of light or a vibration.  This is for use in class so it has to be something that wouldn't distract the other students. I was thinking that instead of a "smart" pen, it may be easier to build a pressure sensitive clipboard which alerts when it's not being written on (when it's supposed to be, of course). It can't be something computer/tablet based, it has to be something he can plug any worksheet into and have it help him stay focused until it's done.  He gets about 4 worksheets a day to "finish in class" and has to bring them home unfinished to add to his homework. Any ideas on a good starting point mechanism would be very appreciated. Regards, Jason

2 Great Photo/Ad blocking add-ons for Firefox.

I hate ads. I hate them so much. My Internet is incredibly slow with them. But, there is 2 GREAT add-ons for Firefox. One is Adblocker, and FlashBlock. Adblocker can block most images. There is usually a little translucent tab that pops up with the word "block" on it, along with the button in the upper right hand corner that allows you to choose what to block. It's entirely free. But,blocking images weren't enough to speed up Firefox. Then I discovered FlashBlock. Guess what it does. It's slightly defective in a way that it blocks EVERY .flv or .swf item on the page, including YouTube videos, but if you roll your mouse over the blocked area, the little flash sign will change to a play arrow, allowing you to play the item without complications. This is also 100% free. I highly recommend these to anyone using Firefox so they can speed it up very significantly, especially if you're using a Netbook. -NYPA

I'd like to add this to the Instructable by uploading it into the comments, but I can't see a way to do that. I can upload a JPG but not a PDF... or am I missing something? I've attached the PDF for reference (the help forum let me). Any help you could give me would be appreciated. Thanks!

embed youtube video into instructable

Hi This may sound odd, as I have already done it before but can't for the life of me recall how I did it... I want to embed a YouTube video into a new instructable I am working on.  I have the link and embed code etc, but don't see an option to add this. It is 112MB file, so not going to upload a file, but link it with the embed code as I have before: I am probably missing something obvious, but any ideas? Regards Stuart

Tips, Tricks and helpful strategies for those dealing with behavioral issues.

Due to the huge response to Supersoftdrink's Sensory Seeker and Counterchangeracing's One Legged Therapy Stool from a huge variety of people looking for ideas and help for themselves or their children, I believe there is a need for a designated category. Nothing medical or diagnostic but of ideas that have worked for people, how to make or use equipment, gadgets etc. When you look at the two sites Ive referred to you will see that many different needs and "issues" are asked about. I stress no diagnosis or medical at all. Please give this your consideration.

Adding more speakers to hi fi stereo?!

Hi, i was just wondering whether anyone knew of anything that will allow me to add more speakers to my sony hi-fi without losing in volume. my stereo only allows me to add 2 speakers, and i have seen that you can get stereo speaker splitter allowing to add more speakers but i don't know whether one of those leads to a loss in volume aswell. I was wondering whether there is anything like a booster/amplifier to prevent the loss (almost like an aerial booster for TV's). Any help would be great thanks! Dan

Editing of published collection bugged

My published 'Cooking' collection is bugged. The collection was posted on Feb 25, 2014. Whenever I try to ADD any instructible to the collection or when I try to EDIT it in any way I get the ERROR page At first I thought it might be some plug-in or add-on but my other published collection works just fine and deactivating all browser extensions didn't reap any rewards. My system specifications: Windows 7 32-bit, 4GB RAM (running smooth and stable for years) Firefox 34.0.5 (bug has been persistent since I had Firefox 31something or longer, regardless of Java/Flash versions)
