Only see my instructable updates when logged in...

I published my instructable, then went back to update a few things, and when I went to post it to facebook, I noticed it was using the wrong picture...so I tried logging out of instructables, and looking at my instructable, but it was an earlier version, not the updated one. When I look at it while I'm logged in, the updates are all there. What's going on here? Is this intended?

PDF download document is not updated with changes when Instructable is republished

I made a few edits to an Instructable and when I republished it the changes where not updated in the PDF download document.  If I create a customer PDF I see the edits I made but not in the default PDF.

Hey guys!

Hi people! As you may have (hopefully) noticed, I haven't been around as much. Well, I've been swamped lately in between some family sickness, internet troubles, my laptop going poof, and Swine Flu hitting us over here, as well as an exaggerated wave of panic (we tend to have at least triple the panic in any other place!), I haven't been able to use the computer much.AND I HAVE MISSED YOU PEOPLE!!I just wanna catch up for a bit. What have I missed? Who's gotten famous? What did Kiteman do now? Whats the latest KNEX feud? (like I really care...) and most importantly, how has Pro been working for the site so far?Please update me, I wanna be up to speed again and start building.I hate myself, I have not managed to make anything lately. On the plus side, I've been writing a lot. I have so far: 6 anime concepts in the works, 2 screenplays in the works, and 6 sci-fi concepts.I have blogs about these, so my little internet time has been spent working on these.

Logged-In Homepage

Hi All, The homepage of Instructables gets a big makeover today, you may have noticed! If you're logged out, you'll continue to see the same rotator with huge, beautiful images that you know and love. If you're logged in, you're going to see your customized feed (if available) or "top picks" (if not). Top picks are the same projects that appear on the logged-out version of the homepage, so if it's the variety of fun projects that keeps you coming for more, there should be nothing lost. We've had terrific feedback on the "feed" related features -- people love the personalization of Instructables, and come back for more when we're able to show them exactly what they came for in the first place. Now, we're dialing it to 11. We know the homepage is a big driver of traffic for many new projects, so there may be concerns that projects on the homepage will get fewer views. We don't anticipate this will be substantial, since most visitors to the homepage are logged out. We hope you like it!

How to make the best gun in the universe even better.

Sorry for the extremely braggy title, I just needed something to grab attention, because these mods are MANDATORY. I have made some mods to the bolt, ram and barrel that are required for my AR-4 v3 Picture 1- Ram mod.  Add these spacers in there.  This keeps the ram from breaking the bolt when you fire. Picture 2- Bolt mod.  I change the number of 1- slot connectors that hold the bolt from 2 to 3.  I also mod the ram so that the part that goes before the bolt is 1 orange connector, and 2 blue caps. Picture 3- 2 barrel mods.  There is a third mod, but I will go ahead and explain this first.  The top of the barrel is changed a little bit.  Note it.   The second barrel mod was actually made by makers of my AR-4 v3.  It required  me to remove the white connector from the front of the barrel.  This somehow increases the power to a staggering 45 feet with 1 rubberband, around 70 with 3 (doubled up), making this the most powerful bolt action gun ever posted. Picture 4- Bullet lock mod.  Sorry for the crappy picture, but it has too much shadow.  Anyways, where the new ram sticks out, you place the ball joint socket.  This also increases the power, and gives you the ability to point it down. With all the mods I made, you can load and fire the gun sideways.

Site Updates: 1/22/2018

Greetings! I'd like to give everybody heads up about some big changes happening on Tuesday (1/23) at 9AM (PST). First off, the Instructables pages are getting a major update. Aside from a sparkly new look, they will now have a section for Questions and Tips. This will provide a place to ask questions when you get stuck, or provide a tip for doing a project better. Secondly, the Community pages (i.e. these forums) are getting a very long-needed makeover. Finally, we are updating our search software, which should improve search results on our site in general. These changes will require a period of downtime on the site of about half an hour. Please check @Instructables on Twitter for updates. Stay tuned for more great changes to come in 2018!

No update for contest forum

This is something that has bugged me since the new contests forum section was added. Why is it that when I go to the forum main page, I can see how many posts and replies are in each section of the forum along with when the last post was made and who made it, but the contest section always says that there are no posts and no replies even though there are a number of posts there.

Posted by Twinmum 7 years ago


Replies not showing up

I am sure someone already noticed but anyway.... The replies in the forum section no longer show up in the overview. Before I could see how many replies were made or who made the last reply. This seems no longer to be updated. Using Win7 64. Tested with the latest Firefox and Chrome browsers. And just becuase I got reminded by the garble below: When making a reply or new topic there is the upload section below. The text "Tip: select multiple files....... Try the old uploader" is still garbeled with the two lines printed with a slight overlap.

New Member Page, New Groups Page

Hey Everyone! We just had a release that was over a month in the making! We totally redesigned the member page (take a look http://instructables.com/member/frenzy). We also did a much needed update to the groups page which will make them more focused, more on that in the coming weeks. We fixed carriage returns on PMs so those work again, improved image processing so your images should be a bit more clear. This is only the beginning, expect some great things coming from HQ this summer! If you see any bugs, let us know! Thanks! Gregg Horton QA Engineer Instructables.com

Important Changes to Contests - May 1st

Hello everyone! As most of you have probably noticed, we haven’t changed much with our contests over the last several years. But this year we’re changing that, thanks to all of you and your important feedback! In 2018, we are going to be trying new things when it comes to contests. We believe these changes will lead to a larger variety of winners and even more incredible instructables!With that said, we’d like to announce two major contest updates starting on May 1st. #1 - Every instructable can only be entered into ONE single contest.At first, this may seem like bad news, but we promise it’s actually good: the new rule will allow more authors to win prizes! We’re reducing the number of prizes ONE instructable can win, but this will allow for more winners overall. While we’re sure some of you will be disappointed, this is a great way to level the playing field and simplify the process for both authors and judges. The old contest system allowed an author to enter three contests with one instructable, which greatly increased the number of entries per contest. Along with increasing the number of entries per contest, the old system tended to pit new authors against much more experienced authors who understand that they can up their chances of becoming a finalist by working multiple contest themes into an instructable. We hope this new contest rule will encourage our authors to commit fully and enthusiastically to one contest theme and create more focused projects, instead of stressing about making something to qualify for three separate contests!.#2 - We are creating more Prize Packs.Currently, if you win a contest at any prize level you will get an Instructables prize pack, some stickers, and whatever other random swag we have lying about in our prize room. As it turns out, this has created a situation in which our best authors end up filling their homes with piles of instructables T-shirts. We recognize that winning T-shirts over and over again is boring.To make Prize Packs Great Again over the next few months, we are going to roll out new Prize Packs on a permanent and limited edition basis. When you win a contest, you will be able to select the standard T-shirt prize pack, but you will also have new choices coming soon.Make sure to keep an eye out soon for new Instructables swag we know you’ll love!

Subscription Updates . . . and updates . . . and UPDATES!

Starting this morning, I have received Subscription Update email notifications from Scoochmaroo.  I have received approximately 50 of these - all of them old guides. I enjoy updates from Scoochmaroo, but it's just disappointing to open an old update.

Updates/corretions to my Instructables not showing when logged out

I've made some corrections to my Instructables. While I can see them updated while I'm logged in, the contents go back to the original version when I log out. I suspect that pages are cached. Is there a way to override/refresh the cache, so that my corrections can be seen by the general public? Thank you, Aki

Another visible change unannounced -- GONE

Another minor update appears to have been rolled out without a post to Site Updates.  In this case, it's the new "view raters" capability in the INFO box. UPDATE 13 May 2010:  According to Staff, this "feature" is for Admins only, and was not intended for public release.  The bug has been fixed. When it was being tested (I presume) a couple of days ago, it got the immediate attention of the K'nex community (who are, as you'd expect, inordinately preoccupied with status among their peers).  Now that it seems to be "permanent," they continue to debate their tribal concerns about the information now available. I'd be very interested in a "view from the top" posting about this feature (which I think is actually useful and interesting for data-mining), and how Instructables authors can benefit from it.

Summer 2014 Updates

The site is always undergoing changes as we work continuously to make Instructables easier and more fun to use. Sometimes these changes can go lost or unnoticed, so I thought it might be time to post here more often. If you're interested in seeing more frequent updates here, please comment on this topic directly so that I know it's worth taking some extra time. This summer there have been a number of significant changes: iPad support for our iOS App Live in the app store now! We're especially proud of our beautifully redesigned app for iOS7, with full iPad and iPhone support. We were featured in the app store once the app released, and we hope everyone enjoys the new editorial presentation of Instructables, complete with large images beautifully assembled. Social Login You can now use your Facebook, Google+, Twitter, or Autodesk accounts to sign up for an Instructables account. It's easier than ever to get involved at Instructables! While we were at it, we redesigned the flow and the associated UI, and made in-context modal login work more smoothly. Fusion 360 Integration  For those interested in 3d modeling, the Fusion360 Viewer is a great way to show off your projects. Ultimately, they'll be supporting a wide variety of file formats, and using the Fusion360 viewer will ensure that your project looks its best as people browse the site. Click the link to learn how to embed your 3d models. Fluid Homepage, Contest Page, and Explore Page Designs As screens get larger and higher resolution, we're trying to make sure you can get the most of the screen real estate that's available. To this end, we're gradually making our pages fill up more of the available space on screen. The contest page was updated at the beginning of summer, and the homepage and explore page have been updated in the last couple of weeks. And... around the corner: Much Improved Search Results We'll be testing and rolling out greatly improved results when you are looking for something in particular. We've been serving our own internal results for a long time, but through your feedback we've heard these aren't good enough. We're in the final stages of testing a new much-more-intuitive provider of search results, and we should have those working shortly. Mobile Web More and more people find Instructables first on their phones, and we don't want you to have to download an app to have a good experience on the site. Big changes to mobile web are on their way, stay posted.

New Explore, Instructable, and Home Page

Hey Everyone! We had some down time earlier to release some awesome stuff, a new explore page, a new instructable page and a new homepage. We also did some site wide code changes to make things look more consistent and make it easier to make changes in the future. To prepare for this we've been processing all of our images (over 2 million!) to be of higher quality and to be new sizes for layouts as always, if you see any bugs post them in the forums. if you like the changes, desserts can be sent to the 82 2nd st office. Thanks!

Blank updates from members I'm following

As you can see in the screenshot, I can't see the new instructables posted by the members I'm following anymore. The section is just blank and the only way for me to see the new ones is to click on "view all".  It's been this way for the past 2 days I think. I'm using Chrome on Win 7, but I tried to look at it on Firefox too and it shows the same problem.

Contests RSS Feed

I am an avid user of Google Reader.  I also like to keep updated with the new contests that run on instructables.  There are RSS feeds for new instructables, but I think it would be useful to also provide a feed for new contests.

May 2014 site update - achievements + new editor

Last night we rolled out a few new features of the site that you may have already noticed, the largest impact will be around the new editor when authoring an Instructable and achievements badges (as seen on comments). New Editor: We've had a "try the new editor" button at the top of the old editor a few months now, giving you ample opportunity to kick the tires, test out the new interface, and see the direction we're heading. We've now officially dumped the old editor in favor of the new. We're sad to see our faithful old editor go, but the new editor has many enhancements (like image dropping, step swapping, and enabling hyperlinks just by pasting them as text). We've worked hard for this new editor to be more robust than its predecessor and last just as long. As with all new things, there's going to be some hiccups along the way. If you notice anything don't be shy about leaving a comment here detailing what you've experienced. Achievements: About 3 years ago we started kicking around the idea of rewarding authors with medals for milestones reached on our site. We thought it would be a fun way to showcase amazing authors at a glance beyond just the "featured" banner (which is now a medal that hangs at the top of your Instructable). A few things came in the way of making that happen when we first thought of gamification (launching of the international Instructables and some major back-end overhauls) but we've finally made the time to make it a reality. We've started with bronze/silver/gold achievements for featured Instructables, comments, and views and have plans to roll out more achievements later. For now, these will display on comments you leave which will augment the profile card that generates when you mouse-over your username. Look for medals to make their way to your profile page in an update soon. Other notes from this release: (fixed) heaps of boring back end stuff (fixed) Instructables with more than 50 comments have the 'next' button to view remainder of comments (fixed) remove related collections from draft preview (new) editor supports youku.com embed links (you're welcome, China) (new) revamped keyword entry (new) as we work with sponsors there will be a 'sponsored' label in lieu if a 'featured' label (new) International Instructables received some much needed love for user interface As with all updates to Instructables we want to hear your feedback. In the coming weeks we'll be tweaking this update so things all play nice together and work like they are supposed to. Remember to clear your browser cache completely and refresh the site to get the best results. So, what do you think?

Revised The new format on a members page gives a bare hint of Best Answers. There are some of us who enjoy helping others and keep bragging score in exchange. That germinated a thought at least one considered worthy of the forum. Why not make it a soft-switch the user can activate by them for their page ? Like that age thing we lie about..... A

Entering a Contest with an Updated Instructable

I have an instructable that I published about a year ago. Since then I have made some updates to the project, (a version 2 if you will). I was wondering if I could enter the updated instructable in a contest since I'm not publishing a new instructable, just updating an old one. Thanks for the help.

Hey, where did the latest Site Update posting disappear to?

Last night, Rachel rolled out some updates and bug fixes, and very nicely posted a summary to Site Updates (thank you, again!). That posting seems to have disappeared from the forum, but not from the top-level count for the forum. Update:  It seems to have been moved from the Site Updates forum to FAQs.  It is still read-only, so I don't quite understand why that was done.

Thumbnail/preview not updating

In my last couple of instructables, I have decided after publishing that a different photo would work better as the primary photo. However, once published, the new thumbnail either a) doesn't update at all on the Instructables pages, or b) updates on the Instructables pages, but not when the link is posted elsewhere, like Facebook.  Is there a way this can be fixed?

Enter: Inferno

The Inferno: Next-Gen Shifle I added a few more pictures to it - I'm not done with the top part or the slide, so those aren't on there yet. 5/6 Update: pics 4 and 5 are updated pictures of the Inferno. 5/15 Update: Then again, Its not really an update, but a picture, check out the sixth pic! 6/9 Update: The barrel in the pictures will NOT be the barrel on the gun. I'm planning on using a different barrel that focuses on power and accuracy. It IS possible with a mag to have as much power as any other single shot gun. 12/7 UPDATE: The gun is nearly completed, and has been dubbed "KI28s2." New pictures coming along the way! Another thing, the gun will not use the system explained in update: 6/9 because of lack of space in the design, but that will be a future project. 12/8 UPDATE!: NEW PICTURE OF INFERNO! 12/9 Update: New pictures of the Inferno and it's trigger system. The Instructables robot is on there too! 12/25 Update: BUILD YOUR OWN! On K'nex Innovation!
