Why did you remove the "all steps on one page" for non premium users!?

I've enjoyed instructables for a LONG time now and have endured the annoyance that it is to have to sign in to view all steps on one page... Now that that's gone for non premium users I'm frankly annoyed. Why are you guys trying to FORCE me into buying a bloody membership!? You guys sell plenty of advertisements to cover the costs on here please give us non-wealthy a chance to view all the steps on a single page. I'm beginning to think they should just set up a completely separate pro website for instructables and leave us poor bastards behind but at least give us the all steps on a single page. Really unfair move guys! Change it back!

View all steps buttons not working

The "View All" buttons sometimes don't work for no readily apparent reason. I'm using Windows XP and Google Chrome. Usually both view all buttons fail as they have done today. Sometimes they work on some Instructables and not on others. Sometimes they work in the afternoon and not in the morning. Sometimes you publish my bug reports

"View all steps on one page" Feature doesn't work anymore

Hey everybody, I checked out the site again today, and was looking through some instructables. But unfortunately, the "View all steps on one page" button won't work anymore :( Are there any known issues with it? NrDesign

Registering to see all steps

Maybe this has a topic already, if so, I apologise! I think it must be new, having to register to see all steps. I don't like it! Annoying for when I'm at school and don't want to log in and just generally inconvenient. I think it might put new people off using instructables because registering just to see how to do a project is quite a turn-off. I know the service is free and I feel bad only ever making a contribution to complain! Instructables is a great site and one of my most visited, I really do love it! Anyway, just my thoughts.

Ring a bell? (Special event for British members)

The Olympics are coming, and although I will miss most of it, it would be cool if I could take part in some way. It turns out I can, and so can every other Brit reading this, in an event called All the Bells. The short version is, on Friday 27th July, at 08:12am, UK time, as many bells as possible, from doorbells and bike bells, all the way up to full cathedral bell-towers will ring, all across the United Kingdom. Taking part is easy - just stand on your doorstep and press your doorbell - but why not go the full hog?  Are you in a cycling club?  Get them all out in the street, ringing their bike bells. Live near a church?  Even if you're not religious, get in touch and get them involved. Go to school?  Talk to the music teacher, borrow the hand bells or the tubular bells. Are you an engineer?  Hang up the biggest lump of steel on the site, and beat it with a hammer. Heck, just get all your friends to set an alarm on their phones and iPods with a bell-tone at 08:12, or turn up your PC speakers and play with sound effects. Pass the website around your friends and contacts by Facebook or Twitter, put a poster up at work, add graphics and links to your blog, and generally spread the word. [BLOGGED]

New card

I have this new Ati all in wonder card right? And it has two tuners built into it, one is supposed to be for TV which is what I have it hooked up to right now, and the other for FM radio which I haven't tried yet. But is there a good chance that they are both regular tuners and I could use them for dual recording?

For view all steps, login can be bypassed

1.Mac 2.Chrome and Firefox 3.Any project 5.On any project the need to login to view all steps can be bypassed by: 1. Click View all steps at bottom of project (registration modal appears 2. Click "Already a member? Login »" (Taken to login modal) 3. Click outside of modal and it will route you to projecNamet/?ALLSTEPS (You will be able to view all steps without being logged in) If this is site is MVC I would guess that moving the redirect to take place IF after the session has been created and ELSE exit modal. But I'm no professional so this could be no help at all

So, I was on google earlier today when I came upon this gun, the Qcw-05. Now as far as I am aware, this is a pretty hard gun to make, as the mag is behind the handle and trigger. Now correct me if Im wrong, but this has not been done before, it probably has, but tell me if so. Anyway, this challenge is only for the smart knexers. So there it is, can you do it?

Unable to filter searches

When I try to search the instructables website I'm not able to alter the scope of the search. My searches return comment, forum posts, etc rather than just instructables. The search type combo box reverts to "All" and doesn't work. If I use the whole site search (top-right corner of the page) it does limit the search to instructable articles, but if I use the navigation links (Next, page 1, etc), the search again reverts. I was also unable to search the forums to see if this had been reported by others.

Combichrist Shrunken Heads quote.

Does anyone know where the quote from the Combichrist song Shrunken Heads For All Occasions comes from? If you haven't heard the song, there is a voice saying "Now, shrunken heads for all occasions, collect 'em, swap 'em, give 'em to your witchdoctor friends". I've tried searching for it, but with no luck whatsoever.

View all steps and secondary pictures

I am sure that I'm not the only one with these feelings about the changes in the site "permissions" concerning guests viewing instructables. I have been looking at this site (which I love, by the way), but something that's really, well, stuck in my craw, is the fact that guests cannot view all steps or view other pictures. What purpose does this accomplish? Are the admins trying to bolster the number of members? Just because a viewer doesn't have an account does not mean that he shouldn't be allowed to view all the pictures. I am also having trouble understanding why the admins don't allow guests to view all steps. The site hasn't always been like this. Not too long ago anyone could use most of the understandable viewing features. An excerpt from the Terms and Condidtions of Use (from section 7, subsection F, first sentence): " Instructables, in its sole and absolute discretion, may preserve Content and may also disclose Content if required to do so by law or judicial or governmental mandate or as reasonably determined useful by us to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Instructables, Instructables users and the public." (go look at the last three words again) I don't know about anyone else, but I think that not seeing all the pictures detracts from the educational viewing experience. If anyone has a good perspective on this, I'd love to hear why the site is like this.

Metric Measurements

I love Instructables, but I find that I use it less and less lately. The main reason is the need to go through all the instructions and convert all the measurements from the old British system to the metric system that everyone else in the world uses. I do have a plugin for my browser, but it doesn't work on my tablet or phone, which I use more often when building stuff. It's 2017. Literally 95% of the worlds's population uses the metric system, and we have computers. Is it not possible for you guys to knock up a little programming routine that converts all the measurements if I'm in a metric country? I understand this is an American site aimed at an American audience, but it seems you're cutting off a huge number of potential site users here.

Greasemonkey script "all comments"

I created a very basic greasemonkey script that adds a "all comments" link just below the normal "add comments" button.  When you click it the page will reload and all comments (up to 2000), not just 50 at a time, will be displayed.  Script simply appends "?&sort;=NEWEST&limit;=2000&offset;=2000" to the end of the URL.  This should making searching through comments with "ctrl+F" much more useful.  Note that the page reload might take a while if there are a lot of comments. I am a copy paste coder, this works on my machine(xp with FF3.5) and my account, you however are on your own.  If your computer explodes and the internet breaks after you install this, I'm very sorry.  When you download this file you will get a .tmp file.  Rename it to whatever.user.js, the only important part is that it end in user.js.  Next, right click on whatever.user.js and choose open with firefox, you can then install it in the browser. Update--Works in Chrome.  Follow the same renaming steps as above, then simply drag it into an open chrome browser window.  Chrome will give you the generic warning, just click "continue" to install.

Firefox Scrapbook and Instructables "view all steps" issue

I take the internet with me when I travel. I use Firefox portable, on my thumbdrive to make sure it comes to me the way I'm used to. I also use ScrapbooK(http://amb.vis.ne.jp/mozilla/scrapbook/) add-on to keep local copies of the fun stuff I run across(for offline perusal when i DON'T have i-net access or just for archiving)Here's my dilema. For each instructable STEP, I get to choose only one image to archive full size. I'd like to be able to archive ALL the images in a given step.Scrapbook DOES do javascript capturing... but the extra images aren't captured. So if i manually save the images, and put them in the right place, the scrapbook page will switch correctly, but that just takes SO LONG! Please help if you can.(PS, NEVER capture at a depth of more than 1. it'll quickly turn into a game of six degrees of kevin beacon and you'll end up downloading half the internet!)

Use scanner only on a Canon MP140 Printer

Hey everyone, I had a great idea to take a non working all-in-one Canon Pixma MP140 printer, remove the non working printer part and use only the working upper tray with the scanner. How complicated can this be? Not as straight forward as I thought. The scanner worked great before I took the printer apart. I removed all the plastic, metal bars and cartridges and thought that with a bit of tweaking it'll work. Hell, at this point I need devine intervention, or at least a knowledgeable instructables member... Right now when I turn it on (I don't know what to call it anymore a scanner or a printer) the power and the alarm LEDs blink with the 7-segment display showing E...2...6... and I can't scan. The following procedure changes the indication, but the end result is the same: •Turn off the printer •Hold the Resume Button (red circle in the triangle), click “Power” which will turn green. •Hold the Power Button, release the Resume Button. •Not releasing the Power Button, double click “Resume” and release Both Buttons. •Click “Resume” for Four times •Once you click “Power”, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber). To disable the printer “Power” button to click again. and I can't scan. I fiddled a bit with a wire innocently thinking it'll do the trick.... somehow... but ended up accidently touching the part that connects the scanner white data cables to the PCB. It sparked and the scanner turned OFF. I'm afraid that might have caused the E26 error that I found indicated: Internal temperature rise error. Any ideas?

US vs UK flour

Curious observation from my mother's recent 3 months in the USA, she says she is unable to bake well when she was in the USA. Now, given mum is a pretty amazing baker on this side of the pond,  I am wondering why that might happen ? I wondered if  its "American flour", as opposed to "UK flour" - the recipe, would be the same kind of things, memorised over the years, like a simple scone, fairycakes, pastry.  Her main complaint was that items didn't brown, even at the same oven temperatures as she uses here, and after repeated experiments with the same recipes.

"All steps" option doesn`t work in Opera browser.

Hello! I`m experiencing the following problem: When logged in my account and viewing an instructable, I could cycle through the steps only or download the instructable as PDF. When clicking on the "All steps" icon, my browser refreshes and displays step 1 each time. I must click on the "Next step" button to view the instructable. It seems that this bug appears only to my Opera browser, since FireFox and Google Chrome are displaying the whole instructable, when clicking on the "All steps" icon.   Currently I`m using Opera 10.63 on Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS (Lucid Lynx) 64bit (core version 2.6.32-25).

What to do with a bricked all-in-one pc?

I have a bricked Dell Studio 19 All-In-One PC, and wanted to know if I could use it for something. It was bricked by a failed BIOS update. There was a program from dell which came installed and updated any other of their software and drivers on the computer. Only after the failed update I found out that updating the BIOS is really unnecessary. The only fix I know for the motherboard is replacing it, and the only place I found out that refurbishes them are from a company in the US, and it's not cheap at all. (I used to live in the US, and moved to Brazil later) Well anyway, I wanted to know if I can use the computer for something else, like use the monitor for a different computer and use its bluetooth mouse and keyboard on a different computer too. I think the only thing really useful in it is the processor which is already old (Intel E7500 and a 320GB HDD). http://www.dell.com/us/dfh/p/studio-one-19/pd http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/product/studio-one-19/diagnose Thanks for the help!

Calling all small engines mechanics!

I have a problematic Ariens YT12 tractor that I have been meddling around with all summer trying to make run perfectly. If I make a video and post it on youtube, to show what it's been doing lately, can someone help me out??!?? I got kinda drunk one weekend and I think I revved the sh*t out of it, the weird things is, I can cut grass with it at full throttle for 2 hours but as soon as I go to rev the engine higher with my modified gas pedal or when I'm adjusting the carb, it just revs up then it starts to sputter and it wants to stall. It's really weird, and although I think I could use a new crankcase gasket, I know the engine is not blown, I'm wondering if maybe I've melted something in the carb, considering how close the carb is to the exhaust pipe on this machine, and the fact that it's a hot running machine (I remember shutting it off one night when it was dark after cutting grass for two hours, the bolts the hold the exhaust on the engine were glowing bright orange.) Anyways I won't bother explaining too much of it, but I'm wondering what I did to my baby and I know a video would probably clarify things a lot better. Something needs to be replaced on it, I know for a fact, it's just a matter of what. I figure even a new carb kit to replace the gaskets and the needle and pin would probably help oodles.

A do-it-all-in-one-cable For laptops(an idea) Using the ATX 24...

I just recently got an idea,its kind of an ingenious(well i think so) idea.ITs a do-it-all-in-one cable,a cable that connects to your laptops s-video,rca,vga,sound,and even usb through one cable using CAT5 cable for it(If cat5 contains enough cables in it)The cable at both ends will have the ATX 24 pin connector that connects to a project box,but thats another part,we will get to that laterS-Video ---------- 3 Data 1 common groundRCA ---------------- 1 Data 1 common groundVGA ---------------- 5 Data 3 common groundUSB --------------- 2 Data 1 5V 1 common groundSound ------------ 2 Data 1 Common groundGrand total = 15-mixing grounds/ 19 - separate groundsSo according to that,i would need 2 and a half CAT5 Cables(if i use separate grounds),which i am going to squish together into one big cable.Or 2 CAT5 cables (if i mix all of the grounds)Now,i would have all of the cables squished together into some tubing(heat shrink?,no too expensive in such a large amount)with the ATX 24 pin connector at each end.Now,the project box,it will have the opposite connector(the one that the other connector connects to) will go into a box with that connector soldered on a breadboard inside of it(i could get the connector from a computer,or 2(i have 2 fried motherboards so ...))and in the other side of the (plastic)box would be all of the connectors(Sound connector,VGA,Svideo,RCA,usb(maybe for IR receiver or something))that connects to the TV,or monitor.The other end with the same connector would connect to the laptop,it would have VGA,RCA or SVideo,Sound,and USBSo now that i got my point out,what do you think?That the all-in-one cable,or a bunch of tangled cables just to put video and sound to the tv,and that is without USB,whats the fun of not having a usb connector from your laptop 20 feet away from you,you could connect a web cam,to see yourself on the tv,or a ir receiver,to control the pc without a keyboard and mouse,or whatever else you can think of.So...what do you think(poin tout any mistakes i have made by chance)So...comment...or whateveri think this would be pretty nifty,no?
