Site

I am running Maxthon ver. 1.6.3 & have a very hard time viewing the site. Some of the pictures & menus load while others just show an empty place holder. Is there a bug in Maxthon, or something I should do differently? The first few times everything loaded fine, & I have not changed anything on my PC. It looks & loads in Firefox just fine, so I am using it for now!!! Thanks Brian

Site suggestion

It would be really helpful if there was an option when you upload a photo to have it as the picture for the form topic and not for the photo under the message, and an option to have the photo for the photo under the message and not the form topic photo.

site navigation

Do you think that the site could be easier to navigate? i think that if you could choose how many items were listed per page e.g. instead of 20 per page, you could have 100 or more. it would make it easier because you would'nt have to click next page as many times. another thing to make the site easier to navigate would be if the names of the 'ibles, questions ect were listed in each category in alphebatical order, so that you could easily find an instructable by name.

Site Suggestion

I wasn't sure this is the place to post this, but I think this site needs to have a search on the personal favourites page. I have 119 favourites, and when I can't remember the title of one it would be great if I could look up its keywords. It might also help if I can change the settings so it can display more than 10 favourites at a time. I hope this helps improve the site!

Has anybody noticed that after a search, in the little drop down menu, instructable is spelt insrtuctable. just like to point that out.

layout of the site

why does instructables have to change the layout for the worse every time i get used to the old one? this most rescent one is horrible! it just might make me quit the site. ***edit***  i didnt realize how whiny this sounded until after i posted it. i dont like that there is a drop-down for the different channels in the catergories. and the tape around the pictures in the instructables are annoying. the main screen doesnt fit onto my internet window any more, i have to use a scrollbar at the bottom to see it all

Site Feedback

Hello, I have some feedback regarding the site. First, the page width is a little too big. On 1024x600 resolution there is a horizontal scrollbar, which seems kind of useless to me and takes up vertical space. Secondly, the link named Feedback on https://www.instructables.com/about/contact.jsp directs to https://www.instructables.com/community?categoryGroup=help&category;=faq, as does the link named FAQs on the Contact Instructables page. Third, a button to hide the search header would be a nice feature, it's unnecessarily big and takes about 1/6th of vertical space on resolution of 1024x600. I hope I explained understandably and that you can make some tweaks. Firefox 21.0 Windows 7 Home Premium

Help with the site

I posted this in the Help section but no one responded. I can see the smaller icon sized photos that indicate which images are to appear in the instructable but when I hit the next step, there are no images at all. I checked my browser and can't see any problem on my end. Any suggestions?

Topic by ThePanda 11 years ago  |  last reply 11 years ago


Site Suggestion

Right now for an Instructable your able to see how many views it's received and also an average rating of your Instructable. But I've noticed that a lot of people, even those who like your Instructable, do not bother rating it. Thus, I was thinking it would be cool if there was some way we could see how many people chose are Instructables as a favorite - which people always seem to do with Instructables they genuinely like. Do you think this may be a neat feature to have?

Wonderful Site

First up, let me say sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum, but I looked and couldn't really find anywhere else for it. If it's wrong, show me to the dunce's corner while a mod moves it to the appropriate place. I just want to say what an amazing site this is. I stumbled in while looking for a knitting pattern for a Pokemon toy (on instructions from my youngest offspring). I quickly got sidetracked in my search, and soon found myself joining because I wanted to comment on something I found. I love the concept of sharing ideas with other people. Among other things, I make dollhouse miniatures and the local club I belong to is big on the idea that if you know how to, then share your knowledge for others to enjoy. So a few days after joining, I now find myself creating an instructible of my own to share and hopefully (if it turns out) to enter into one of the competitions. Norma

Site Update

So maybe I've got the right spot for this comment this time (Thanks, Kiteman, for the wake up), but here goes..the last time the site had an update wasn't too bad. Things were relatively easy to see and find, and the previous style had been a little cumbersome--now it's a big mishmash and confusing as hell. What is it with geeks who can't leave what works well enough alone, but have to try and fix it? (I'm looking at you here, too, Firefox.) Pay attention here folks! The project of the day humongous header at the top of the page--it's frickin' annoying!! It was good to be able to see all the projects in a row, very neat and organized, and then go to the one I'm interested in. Surely I'm not the only one? I can't get here everyday and now the different projects are extremely hard to catch up on. I'm not trying to be mean, nor am I against constructive change or fixing problems, but changing something just to be different doesn't always work. People come here to see the projects, etc., To connect on ways to do things or build things, not to see a website where someone wants to show off their building skills. Please take a poll of your readers or something and see what everyone else thinks. If I'm a minority opinion I'll just learn to lump it, but I still won't have to like it!

DIY project posting sites

I am kindof annoyed by some of the things that have happened recently (comments that were deleted in a certain thread that is ultimately being blocked, for instance) no name-calling or negativeness so far... I would love to find a website where I can display my projects to the maker community, variety is the spice of life, right? Nothing malicious yet, very good... I know theres MAKE, and I know Hack-A-day does some project hosting, but I would love to find another site as awesome as Instructables with wonderfully arranged project writeups, publishing, and hosting that has a comparably large community. Oh hey, compliments! Can anyone help me? P.S. I apologize to anyone ive upset, I don't mean to hurt feelings.

If you know of any other sites that could prove to be useful to helping with electronics, post them below (I suggest searching the site above first cause it has thousands of links such as digi-key and other component datasheet sites).PS- You can search for just about anything if you use the navigation bar at the top (History, General Useful Info, Science, etc.)

Hello everyone!  I'm having some trouble with navigating / searching the site.  When I am browsing and I select most popular, it doesn't seem to sort in particular order. When I sort by views, it shows them in descending order, but when using most popular its a hodgepodge of results.  Also, is there anyway to search the site by materials used? It would be awesome if I could say I've got these parts / pieces, what could I make with them?  Thanks! Tim

Referral/GTP sites

Before anyone freaks out and starts screaming SPAM (lol) I am not posting links to my account on a referral site. To be honest I find it extremely annoying when people do. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with referral/GTP (get paid to) site.  Basically they pay you to complete surveys and basically buy your personal information, and you earn more money for getting other people to join under you. I started using one called FusionCash and got through a few offers by using bs information. Then I realized that they have a minimum payout of 25$ (they wont send you a check or paypal until you have 25$ in your account on their site), 15$ of which must be from completing "offers", on top of this your account on their website resets itself every 90 day (should have read the fine print, lol) I found this system kinda fishy and utterly ridiculous. Then I started looking into other sites. I found CashLagoon which has no minimum payout and works through paypal as well as check (win!). The other site I found was CashCrate which pays you by check in mail but has a minimum payout of 10$. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations about which sites to use and if there are any legitimate ones that are worth my time. (DON'T POST REFERRALS) ;-) Dan
