I am wondering if anyone knows of HTML tags that work in Instructables like the ones in this Instructable? https://www.instructables.com/id/Snork-Adding-HTML-TAGS-to-Instructables/

Hey, i'm currently working on redoing my website, and i've got a problem. I'm using tables to separate a background the main body, but when I add the text, it backs right up to the edges of the border. Does anybody know how to push the text in some, without using CSS? Using the tables won't work, it messes up my background.

Hi! I recently posted my instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Custom-Stamp-With-Brass-Inlay/ it got put on the homepage and has tons of views but no likes, this may be because i made the 'ible quite long by adding photos directly into the html, making it harder to see the whole thing, should i remove the photos?

Hello, Is there a way to put images in the middle of text in a instructable step? I seem to only be able to put the images at the top. That's not very useful. There's no way to drag and drop an image where you want it. There also doesn't seem to be any html tag option - it seems Instructable go rid of that button, although I see Instructables from people that tell are using that button. What's going on? Thanks, Eric

I noticed that everything I've done in HTML has disappeared from all of my Instructables!!! These are several featured and 1st/grand prize winning Instructables that I custom formatted in HTML for best effect. Can you please restore them? Will re-activating my Pro membership automatically restore them? If not, can you please restore it for me from a database backup or something?

Hey, I would like to know how to fix this font size problem I'm having. I don't know if HTML just doesn't allow it so that may be the case. So I have a div with an id of "NavBar" and a div with an id of "AccountList". The "AccountList" div is inside of the "NarBar" div. In the CSS, the "NavBar"'s div has a font size of 36px and a color of #e1e1e1. I want my "AccountList" div to have a font size of 19px and a different color. The problem I am having is that the "NavBar"'s CSS properties override the "AccountList" properties. How can I get around this? I will not take the "AccountList" div out of the "NavBar". If you want to see the actual thing I have and what I'm explaining, here is the code (Just save it as an HTML to run it): http://pastebin.com/ztX5Us7A Thanks,

Re: this thread , I hate to have to say this but I don't think it's the best idea to make a big thing ofd the ability to use arbitrary HTML in comments. Yes, it's great to be able to go G o o g l e all over the place, but the lack of source editor for non-pro members actually cripples the editor, including the ability to save the text of a comment with formatting/links etc. and post it later (or just keep it in case the editor screws up and deletes your comment, like it just did to me). While the point of the pro value-added features is to make people want to go pro and "non-essential but cool" features are probably the best way of doing that without creating resentment, I still suspect the anti-pro regiment like ReCreate etc. don't need another reason to accuse pro members of lording it over the great unwashed.

Hi, while working at this one https://www.instructables.com/id/Waveshare-EPaper-and-a-RaspberryPi I experienced some clitches in the editor. 1. Code sections (formated with the paragraph "Code") are loaded in the editor including the HTML formating tags etc. When saving this they apear in the text as well, so the formating within the code section is destroyed every time. Browser = Chrome 60.3312... all my Safaris On an up to date iPad the complete page is shown as HTML within the editor, I did not try to save it there Feature Requests 2. More Header styles 3. insert a table ? User experience suffers a bit :-( Cheers Mario

I noticed from when Eric made a post about internship in 2006, that many people have experience in scripting and such. But I also noticed how many people would like to learn, but all the big words keep them at an emotional distance.I was thinking that maybe some pros could de-mystify all them big terms for the people who might be interested in this. Mainly, Could people please post resources that could be useful to people who are interested in learning this. Or maybe some Instructables?I think that if you could simplify these to the very basics, for nth9 graders with very basic knowledge, they would have a great advantage in the future.Here are some resources I found could be very useful to complete beginners:W3School - Thanks to KitemanP.S.

I think I found a bug that will cause the editor to crash. I had a typo in my HTML tag that I was entering into the source mode editor. The tag looked like blah When I tried to exit the "source code" mode, my browser (Chrome) told me the page had crashed. I tried again, and it crashed again. When I tried again with the tag corrected, it didn't crash.

Asked by Lisaw23 7 years ago | last reply 7 years ago
In a posting to NachoMahma's Text-Formatting FAQ, I remarked on a bug in the way hyperlinks (bracketed text) are rendered. The bug involves enclosing a hyperlink (valid or not) between punctuation characters, for example "[a-quoted-link]" or ([parenthetical-link]): "[a-quoted-link]" ([parenthetical-link])In both cases, the leading punctuation character, adjacent to the left bracket, is moved to the end of the link, instead of being preserved at the beginning.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to check out my question. I'm working on writing an instructable where I would like to have a picture and then a paragraph of text and then another picture and a paragraph of text and then so on and so forth. The problem I'm having is with the size of the pictures, they are huge... the code I'm using is: now I'm not great at using html, in fact I haven't really used it since my basic coding class in highschool, so I'm hoping that someone can show me where I'm making the mistake. If you could would you also give me some pointers on how to use html for instructables, things like centering text, creating line breaks, etc. Thanks in advance!!

I use html to format my list of parts into a table, like this page. Recently the formatting was somehow lost on this page which is a bummer because it took a while to create the html. The page was fine for at least a year. I don't know exactly when the html was lost but I suspect it happened a few weeks ago (October 12th) when I edited a different page on the same instructable. It's possible that I edited the Instructable while my Pro membership was expired. I definitely did not edit the page with the html formatting. OS: Linux Ubuntu 14.10 Browser: Chromium 37.0.2062.120 Is there any chance of reverting that page (or even the Instructable) back to a date before the HTML was stripped out?

So I play a game where if I need to report someone, I put it in a log, pretty much a table. I did this in html because I'll probally put it up on the website, so I was wondering if there were anyway to make a table maker? I want it to have 5 text fields and a submit button, so if I were to put in my name, the accused, the reason, the proof, and the action, and pressed submit, it would display it on the page, and it would save into the localhost. Is this possible? This be'd so much easier than having to do it manually.

I'm writing an instructable where I include some Linux wget commands that include a URL as part of the command. (i.e. wget http://aaa.com/a/b/foo.python). The instructables editor automatically converts the URLs to links with anchor tags. Is there a way I have the editor not convert the URL to a link?

When arriving at a page such as https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/category-technology/ There's a horizontal scrollbar. To remove it, find this rule div#omni in your CSS files. Either: - Remove: border: 1px solid rgba(119,130,135,.4) - Add: box-sizing: border-box; Either one should fix your problem.

Hi, just thought you would like to know ... I receive the frequent Instructables newsletters. However, I read mail in "mutt", a terminal-based text-only email program. If I want to follow a link in a message, I cut-and-paste it from the terminal to a browser. The URLs in the Instructables newsletters are ludicrously long, which makes them a chore to cut-and-paste. One I wanted to access today was 740 characters. I don't know of any compelling reasons for a URL to be that long. (I'm sure there are "reasons", I just suspect the same goals could be accomplished with URLs less than 100 characters long). I'm sure I'm in the extreme minority here, so I don't expect anyone to rush to fix this, but just thought you would like to know at least one newsletter recipient almost never follows the links it contains. Sorry if this was not the appropriate place to post this. A quick scan of the site did not turn up a "feedback to Instructables" option. Thanks, Mark

I'm a beginner in HTML coding. When I click a button it should open a page or document. How should I do it. Sorry for my English :-((
For example, there's a list of links down the left hand side, when you hover over it more links pop out the side. I'll try explain in ASCII: [Text] [Text] > [Text] [Text] [Text] [Text] [Text] >[Link] [Text] [Link] [Link] A link to a website with this featured on it would be fine, just so I can go view source.

I've been updating one of my forum topics today, and I have seen some annoying bugs in the handling of HTML entities and special characters.In the original topic text, I made use of three HTML entities (&...;): the open and close square brackets (numeric entities #91 and #93) and the Greek letter mu (entity "micro"). In the initial posting, all these entities are translated correctly. What I have seen is that if I then "Edit Topic", the text is not "inverted" correctly: The entities are preserved as their corresponding ASCII characters. For the square brackets, which I had entered as entities specifically so they would not be interpreted as signaling a hyperlink, that interpretation occurs and messes up my text. For the micro entity, a sequence of invalid additional characters (angstrom and question mark) get prepended to it on each edit/publish cycle.Obviously I can (and did, half a dozen times) go through and re-repair all of these mistakes, but it's pretty annoying :-(
