eBooks only contain table of contents and comments

Hi, The ebooks available for download only contain a table of contents and comments, but not the actual instructables.  Not what I would call an eBook!! Is there a problem with the eBook generation or is this on purpose? Cheers, Shauno

Download the ebook

I am sure I must be doing something silly but I have tried both Firefox and IE and don't see any way to download ebooks anymore.  When I am logged in and click download the ebook it brings me to a general description page on one tab, a table of contents on another tab, a small table below that lets me download various readers but I don't see any actual link that lets me download the book in question.  I have looked in my downloads folder thinking that maybe it happened in the background or something but that also isn't the case.  There is also a View Instructables link that just brings me back to the page that has the Download ebook link.

How Do You Create An Ebook Cover ?

I'm making an ebook.  The ebook covers for Instructable ebooks look very good.  What software or online service would you recommend to make them look that good?   Example for an Instructable ebook is below. Thanks!

eBook download error

Hi, I recently upgraded to Pro membership, and when downloading an eBook, all I get is the table of contents and comments on the eBook. If thats all I get, then Pro membership is not really worthwhile. Is this a bug in the eBook generation process, or by design?  eg Office weapsons eBook (attached copy). Thanks, Shauno

Used platform is Linux Mandriva and browser is Firefox 17.0.1. Regards.

Selected for inclusion in eBook?

I just got an email saying that one of my instructables (which one?) was selected for inclusion in an eBook. Is this legit? Can someone take our instructables, resell them, and make money off of our ideas? Or are the eBooks for free? If they are not free, then where is my cut? It appears to be an automatic opt-in deal, because is says, "If you don't want to be included for any reason, please write back and let us know by Dec. 9. " Am I being overly cautious? Has anyone seen this offer before? Or am I the last one to know?

Cannot download ebooks, no links, have pro membership

Hi, I cannot download any of your ebooks with a pro membership - I simply do not get the download screens. And yes, have checked browser, security, plug-ins etc... no joy. Can you make sure I am activated correctly? Also there appears to be many people with this problem, so do you have an alternative method of getting pdfs?

What free ebooks should I check out?

I'm going to be hiking in Japan for a week soon. The last time I did this was about eight years ago and I hauled a few large paperbacks along with me which I devoured in the first few days. It was far too much dead weight and took up too much space in my backpack.This time around, I'm going to be borrowing a Sony ebook reader from a friend. Since many ebooks cost more than real books and there are a ton of classics I haven't read yet, I'm going to load it up with reading from Project Gutenberg and feedbooks.com.So far I have selections from Mark Twain, Jules Verne, Nietzsche, Cory Doctorow, H.G. Wells, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Those are already be more than enough, but I want to have options!What other free classics should I check out? I normally geek out on too much non-fiction, so I want some stuff with wonderful language, characters, and stories. Let me know if you have any ideas.

Posted by liquidhandwash 6 years ago


Where are those eBooks?

OK, this is probably more a case of not quite ready yet as opposed to an actual bug, but it bugs me so in a way it is a bug. Anyway, why is it that there are 6 interesting looking eBooks on the banner for the eBooks on the front page, yet when you follow the link, those eBooks are nowhere to be found? Also, on the front page when you scroll down and see the featured eBooks there is a link to more eBooks, but when you click it, it just takes you to the top of the front page again.

ePub ebooks missing images

I upgraded my subscription to Pro this morning so I could take advantage of the ebooks. On downloading several ebooks, I find them missing the instructable images.  For example:   https://www.instructables.com/id/Guide-for-Dog-Lovers/ When downloaded, the epub is missing the images.  On extracting the contents, it looks like the epub has an images folder, and all the source files point to that location for the images, but all the images are missing.

scoochmaroo's ebook

I have been contacted by a member, named scoochmaroo, who tells me she is packaging up a number of origami-related instructables and selling them. She says: Congratulations! Your Instructable has been selected for inclusion in eBook. We're taking some of our Guides to the next level, and converting them into an eBook format to better share Instructables projects with a wider audience. You'll get a copy of the eBook, which you can share with friends and family -- especially those with iPads. You can see a draft of the eBook here: https://www.instructables.com/id/OU8YZ5UGGPEU6AK/ Before publishing the eBook, I will be writing up a description of the projects and a link back to Instructables.com We hope you're as excited as us, and wanted to reach out to let you know this was happening. If you don't want to be included for any reason, please write back and let us know by Dec. 9. --- I have declined. When I posted my instructable to this site, I did so under a Non-commercial Share Alike Creative Commons license. I was serious about that. I don't make money off of my work and I don't think anyone else should do so. I think that's not too much to ask. This scoochmaroo says she is selling her ebook for 0.99 cents a pop. I would like to find out if this ebook has the sponsorship or the blessing of the Instructables site. Thank you very much for your consideration in this matter.

HELP WITH 'IBLES E-BOOK DOWNLOAD TO KINDLE FIRE PLEASE

OOOOK!! So here i am with another question... My wife bought me a kindle fire three days ago. i have been tinkering around with it to see what i can do with it naturally...i then got to thinkin i wanted to put all my 'Ibles e-book downloads on it...but heres the hitch...i downloaded Calibre to convert the documents, and i am having a number of problems... Problem 1:  After converting the pdf to MOBI, and then syncing it to my Fire, i disconnect the device and test to see wether it was a successful sync (to see if technology was telling the truth as it is often fickle). Well, success it downloaded...but thats not the problem...when i look for the new e-book i just converted, i would expect to see the book's cover as it is on the 'ibles website (ie: go to the e-books page and look for the guide to paracord). what i see is not that but what you see when you click the download button on the download page (it has the cover, and the intro description of the e-book). I want to figure out how to get Calibre to convert the book to have the real cover...not the description page. Problem 2:  I want to try to download the e-pub of the guide to paracord...but when it asks to save it...i save it and then it downloads. after that i go to the file its sitting in, and magically the file is a zip file...i have NO idea what i am supposed to do with this!!! i extracted the file, and low and behold...there is a gazillion files within files (not really...its more like 50+ folders haha). i then proceeded to move the files to my Kindle Fire and then disconnected the device and BOOOM!!!........no file...no book...no nothing!! Problem 3:  when i did the conversion to MOBI in Calibre and then did the test on my Fire, i touched one of the direct links in the TOC and it zapped me straight to the beginning of the book... If anyone knows whats giong on, PLEASE HELP ME!!! And before anyone asks...*i have read the instructions to the software*

Kiteman knows a secret!

Instructables is going back into the publishing business! OK, so it's not much of a secret, what with a bunch of people getting emails about their projects going into them, but individual comments are building into a bigger picture: Instructables is following up The Book with a bunch of eBooks - a BIG bunch of eBooks. I don't know the titles, yet, but there are going to be... (counts on fingers, runs out) more than several (in aPub format, maybe Kindle too?).  Did you get an email?  Are you going to be in one of them? If you find out a theme or title, add a comment. Can we work out what they all are before The Powers That Be let us know officially? Oh, and get this - at least some of the several will be free for pro members to download!  Now there's even more of a reason to post a cool project that could get freatured - a helping of free pro-ness would come with a side-order of eBookiness! (K'NEX?  Surely not?) Yes!  They're on the Kindle!

eBook madness!

Hey everyone,  just wanted to send a heads up and let everyone that might be subscribed to Scoochmaroo or I that we are in the midst of some serious publishing mayhem! Unfortunately that means you'll be getting a pile of updates as we publish and then immediately unpublish the eBooks as part of the editing process. Please forgive us, there wasn't a way around it this time. It's certainly something we'll look into for the future.  Best, Jason

Can not download Ebooks - I have a pro membership

How do i download ebooks?  I signed in and "hit" the download ebook icon and then it took me to the book page.  It did not download and when you look at the top of the page it wants you to log in again.  So - i logged in again but still nowhere to download book.  so I hit the back button and it showed I was logged in.  I hit the download button again and once again it took me to the book page - only this time I did not sign in (again it requested that I sign in) And when it went back to the previous page - low and behold I was signed in.  Whats going on with this?  If I can not download your ebooks can I get a refund of my 2 year payment?

single ebook download page behaves as if I cannot log in

While logged in (account links look correct in upper right hand corner), I visit the "Guide-to-Paracord" page. Immidiately, it looks as though I've been logged out ("Login" appears in the upper right.) Logging in and returning to this page always has this same effect (no other ebook page [so far] does so.) When clicking the "download" link, the mini-login appears. entering my username/password only cycles the page (ending in the same result.) https://www.instructables.com/id/Guide-to-Paracord/?download=ebook Maybe something wrong with the page...

Can't even find link to download ebooks

I became a pro member yesterday, and the membership appears to be working correctly -- I can download full instructables including pdfs. But I'm having trouble with ebooks. When I click on "Download the ebook" I'm taken to a page that allows me to download Adobe Reader, Calibre, and the iBooks app. But I don't see links anywhere to download the actual book. (PDF is my preferred format.) I can see from this forum that many others are having similar problems, so this is clearly a frequently asked question. But I don't see a hint of an answer anywhere. Can someone please help?

eBook downloads in Firefox 4, 5, 6, AND 7

I am hoping I am not the only one with this issue: The new ebook downloads are currently very difficult to download in Firefox here. In Firefox 4-6, the links that should show up are covered almost completely by the text box above them, leaving a two pixel high sliver that can be clicked on. This makes it very hard to download the ebooks in Firefox. In Firefox 7, the buttons are mostly covered. You cannot read the text, but you can at least tell the buttons are there, as a 10 pixel high orange stripe appears. The links work normally in other browsers I have installed (Iron, Opera), as well in Firefox 3.6.x (confirmed from another user's computer). I've attached a screenshot that exemplifies this issue. For reference, I'm doing this on Windows 7 x86, SP1. Display resolutions are 1600x900 pixels for secondary, 1900x1080 pixels for primary. 96 DPI - nothing strange here. I have gone as far as reinstalling the operating system, with no change. I also have a Linux machine running Firefox 7, on which I cannot replicate this issue, even with the same set of add-ons installed to it. On Windows: Current browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:7.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0.1 On Linux: Current browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:7.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0.1 Update: This issue has persisted for four full versions of Firefox, and STILL hasn't been addressed by staff. This is why I let my Pro subscription lapse, and don't want to renew it.

Sams Citizen Band Radio Manuals (1961) Free to download

My mate Gerry and myself are members of the Internet Archive, a vast depositary of out-of-copy-right texts, videos and audio. Volunteers like us, are constantly uploading new materiel, its all free to download, with some restrictions, like, "for non-commercial-use only". There are books like old telephone manuals, Bell Labs monthly journals, same for Kodak, books on building televisions from the 1940s, Radio, Electricity etc a book from Popular Mechanics, called "The Boy Mechanic", training manuals, and fiction. At last count, volunteers had uploaded 1.5 million text items. In the movie archive, there are training movies, and videos from the USA Government, on things like Nuclear Power and Subs, Power stations, ships,  a lot of stuff produced to screen in schools but still useful. Plus old movies, there is 22 episodes of the old Western Bonanza, for which the copyright owner forgot to renew the copyright on. Plus more like all of Edison made movies, 1900 and before, up to maybe 1905, then stuff like his gramophone, etc. Any material uploaded, that is under copyright, is quickly spotted by volunteers and reported for deletion. Gerry in New York, collects a lot of old books from library dumpsters, all of which he scans, and uploads to the Archive. and of cause most members upload, as you dont need to registrar at all, to download. Gerry just advised me, he is uploading some CB Radio manuals, I just checked, and its 5 volumes at least, of the following, on the following link. http://www.archive.org/details/Sams_Citizen_Band_Radio_Manual_Volume_1_ The 922Mb PDF is an archival version, so only download the 31Mb PDF, thats all you need to use the book. To review on-line, it the Read Online link, and the Text Only, has had OCR run over it by the Archive, so you can copy and paste the text, but beware, you need to proof read it for OCR errors. Gerry uploads a wide range of items, so he uses a keyword coding, to tie all similar items together on the archive, so when you reach the URL above, there is a listing of keys words, the one to click on is SP-000-001 which gets the other volumes as the other ones keywords are for linking to other members uploads to the archive. To see his other stuff, click on his name as publisher. (Publisher to the archive) or SP-000-001 for his similar stuff to the book below The following is Gerry's standard book description. BTW, Gerry works for a library, is a copyright expert, and even has a copy of a letter from Sams, saying the material is in the public domain, seems 5 years ago, somebody uploaded similar material to other website, was reported to Sams, the letter coming back, was then placed on the same website. Sams Photofact Series; Citizen Band Radio Manual, Volume 1; published in 1961. Published originally by Howard W. Sams & Co., of Indianapolis, Indiana. It was published under the Photofact folder series and is was copyrighted in 1961. There is no copyright renewal for this document so it is Public Domain under Rule 6 of the U.S. Copyright Statutes. The document is 160 pages; Dimensions are 8 1/2" width by 11" height and weight 383grams. Ebook created by Gerard Arthus. This item was from the collection of the Suffolk County Library System (SCLS), 627 North Sunrise Service Road, Bellport, New York 11713.

Stats and eBooks!

I've just pushed out another update.  There are some new tabs now on your You page.  The first is the downloads tab, which will let you keep track of the PDFs you have downloaded from the site -- going forward; we didn't track previous downloads so the tab will start out empty.  There's also a spot for downloading eBooks.  You may know that we've been creating eBooks out of some of the more popular Guides, and selling those via Apple's iTunes, as well as a couple other online bookstores.  Well those have been doing so well that we'll be generating more, and will be releasing many of those for free on Instructables.com directly.  Check your favorite Guides over the next few weeks to see if they're available in eBook form. The next addition is a Stats tab, giving more tools to authors who want to promote their Instructables.  This pulls information from Google Analytics for your own instructables, in a variety of combinations.  Check it out at https://www.instructables.com/you/stats.  Be patient as this generates a bunch of informative charts on the fly and can sometimes take ten or fifteen seconds to show up! If you're logged in via Facebook, you also will now have the option to post to your Wall, when publishing content.  Look for the checkbox next to the Publish button on Instructables, Forum Topics, and Questions. There's a few other things in this release but just for us site admins, I'm afraid -- we occasionally need improvements too and with all the contests we've been running lately, we had to make some updates to how those are handled. We did a lot of testing this time around, but please don't hesitate to let us know if we broke something!

Letter from the editor: Say Hello to eBooks!

Happy New Year to all! It's been an exciting time at Instructables HQ, with the release of over 60 new eBooks currently available in the iBooks store on iTunes! As many of you know, we've been furiously working on putting together some fantastic guides of projects that span the content of the website in order to share our work with an even broader audience. Many of your projects have been featured in these eBooks and you have already checked them out. For those of you who haven't, you can peruse the iTunes bookstore and download free previews of all of the books we publish by searching for Instructables within the iBooks App on iPads, iPods, or iPhones. If you don't have a device that natively reads EPUB files, you can read them on your computer using a free EPUB reader such as Calibre. Click here to get Amazing Cakes for the iPad or iPhone Lots of interesting questions and ideas have come up in the creation of these books. While we want to offer as much of our content for free as we can, it's also true that people tend to value objects more when there's a price tag attached. To test out this theory, we did add some nominal fees (between $0.99 and $2.99 USD) to some of the more niche titles we created – the rest of our books remain free on the iTunes market. However, all of our PRO members will soon be able to download every eBook we produce for free, and every author featured in one will receive a code to share with their friends and family as well. Some of the titles are available to the Nook audience, though their publishing restrictions were tighter than iTunes' (the Nook doesn't allow us to offer eBooks for free!), so we were limited to what we could share through that market. Now that we know more about their process, we'll be able to share more with them in the future! And we're still brainstorming the best way to bring these books to your Kindle (as much as I love my Kindle, I just don't like the way our guides look in e-ink). Of course, you can still upload pdfs of the Instructables you love to any portable reader you have.

All the best, Sarah
