I need some binding post/banana posts (preferably something that an aligator clip can easily attach to). Does anyone know a cheap place? The cheapest were about 30 cents apiece, but shipping was like 5 dollars, if this is the cheapest then I'll buy it, just that I don't want to.

I have been having intermittent problems posting either to the forum or as a reply using either Chrome or FireFox. It seems to have gone for now, so I am not sure whether that means it MUST be on my end, or that something is not loading properly sometimes when I sign in.

I have been having extreme trouble posting anything (comments, forums, Instructables) for some reason instead of opening the link for the comment box, it just refreshes the page. I can't upload anything either. This isn't happening on YouTube. Any ideas what's wrong?

Hi, I'm a soccer coach. I'd like to make some inexpensive posts to serve as obstacles/markers that I can use indoors. I have 5' pvc pipe, but can't seem to locate or concoct something to hold the posts upright both affordably and that aren't too wide to get in the way of the players or the soccer ball. Ideally, I'd have something that is only a few inches wide with a 3/4" hole in the center to hold my 3/4" pvc. Thus far, the best thing I can come up with are a few 2.5/5lb thick plastic weight plates where the center hole happens to be just about 3/4" wide. Those seem to quite difficult to come by though! The next closest thing I've found were either heavy steel flanges or rubber mounts specifically designed to hold plastic posts. At $8 or more/each though, I was hoping to find something a little less expensive. Anyone have any ideas?

Hey Instructables! So a couple of weeks ago I finished a year long project, automating my room. The project is completly modular so if any piece burns out or fails you can quickly switch it, the project includes automatic lighting controlled via a PIR sensor, an LM35 controlled fan, a miniature green house controlled by another LM35 and it displays the info about humidity and temp, through a 16x2 lcd and DHT11, a combination lock for my door via a keypad, a infrared control that can turn on or of my desk lamp, alarm clock, room lights, solder station and has the function to turn the whole system on or off, it also includes a modified Sony alarm clock, that has a TDA2040 amplifier with aux in and its connected to some speakers around my room. I have all the eagle files and ready to print pdf´s. Everything is controlled by 2 DIY arduinos. I made most of the modules for the sensor array but a couple of the controll modules were made using already existing files on fritzing, and the DIY-Duino https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Arduino-or-The-DIY-Duino/ Should I redesign this modules and controller board before uploading, or will crediting the authors of this parts will do?

Re: How do I complete posting a comment When I filled in the comment box and then hit "post" button, a gray transparent layer covered the entire screen but there was no progress bar across the top and nothing further happened. Since I'm doing this from my phone, I thought additional info required might be out of view, so I scrolled all over but found nothing. I was able to see the grayed post button so I hit it again and the gray layer disappeared but it still wasn't posting. Any help is greatly appreciated.

That is the question. It will look something like the one pictured, and will be a combination of this, this, this, this, and many months of research. It will be cheap, under $300 easily. I want to know if I should do an 'Ible before I make it so I can take pictures. What do you think?

It seems the code monkeys worked on the problem of being unable to post when the server is busy at certain times. I no longer get the "Backend error" message :) Instead I now see nothing happening for quite a while, then just a popup stating "error". Try again a few minutes later and I get the good old backend error. This switches nicely back and forth. Being unable to post at certain times is one thing but getting utterly useless error messages for it is another story. And no, I am not in the mood to consider daylight saving times, timezones and so on to guess when I should better not click on the post button. Would it be too muchto ask after so many months of this problem existing that something is being done about it? If you can make postingspossible 24/7 than at least provide a meaningful error message that also states how much longer a user has to wait before he can post. It is an annoying error and one that is not necessary at all.... Edit: It seems this bug now messes with new postings as well. I only got a blank page when trying to click the "Preview topic" button and not even any error message at all. How about a free Instructables alarm clock for the pro members that shows the times of sheduled server works? ;)

If we make something that was inspired by (for example) a costume in a movie, are we allowed to post a photo of our inspiration piece? I know that it says that images in our instructables must be our own, but I can't exactly take this photo myself. Should I just mention the piece I was re-creating, and let people search for a photo themselves if they would like to see it?

I put up my Instructable yesterday morning. Maybe I've always been lucky, but my instructables usually only take an hour or so to go on the site. Is this instructable in limbo, or does it usually take a day to get approved?

As Plasmana posted last week, there's an ongoing, but seemingly intermittent bug which prevents creating comments or replying to existing comments on Orangeboards. It appears to affect "busy" ones primarily, and also comes and goes. Perhaps one server is having problems that the others are not?

Trying to make my first instructable. Doing Step by Step. I think it is done, add pictures, descriptions, etc. But when I try to publish all I get is "Please add a description before publishing". The title of my instructables is "making a realistic compound fracture". What other description should I add? I am confused, please help!

I registered for a free account a few days ago, and was able to upload an avatar without problems (e.g., that part of the site recognized my login fine). Whenever I try to post a comment to an instructible, however, it automatically goes to the login page as soon as I place my cursor in the comment box and hit a key (it won't even let me type anything into the comment box, just immediately pops up the login page). It's also not showing my user name at the top of the page, just the "login" text. So I log in, try to comment again, and get the same thing. Refreshing the page makes no difference. Logging in repeatedly also makes no difference. I'm using windows 7 home premium and firefox 27.0. The instructible page I was trying to post a comment on is: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-Your-Own-Sugru-Substitute/?ALLSTEPS Note, I've also tried it on a few of the individual step pages also, not just the "all steps" page, and it still automatically goes to the login page the second I put my cursor in the comment box. Thanks in advance for help fixing this problem!! (hopefully it will post - the top of the page says "you" so I'm assuming it is recognizing my login properly, where the instructible page is not.)

I am trying to post a video on the Instructables website, however, when I click on "Save and Preview" the site always goes to a blank page with the following URL: "https://www.instructables.com/edit/null." My video is around 14 minutes long. It almost seems as though there is a problem with the Instructables website itself. Can anyone help me? Thank you!
