As "VanillaXtiffy" said on Jake's Testimonial topic;...when I see a testimonial or a review on the website it's praising, I'm tempted not to believe it. It takes multiple ones on a third party site.He has a point. So, we need to make sure that there are lots of testimonials to Instructables on other websites.He suggested one site (Jabber) as a review site.Do you know any other website review websites? The higher the traffic, the better.Post a link, and then we can swamp it with positive reviews pop over for a look.;-)

I'm having a problem with the entire website in my Firefox browser: any site within the instructables appears as a blank grey or white page. It doesn't even show up on google chached. I've tried deleting my cache and my cookies and it hasn't worked. The website still opens on internet explorer. When I open it on Firefox, it will show up for a second, and then disappear.

After not looking at or dealing with my own personal site for months I finally had to take action because there was a 500 error of some sort. So I took the opportunity to try out wordpress and play with a different structure. It's very minimal! It has big pictures! Anyway, please take a look and let me know what you think. I will be filling it with posts about my favorite projects as well as whatever new things I make. My li'l website

Is anybody else getting talking ads that cannot be turned off on their instructables articles. To me, this is a complete no-no. I appreciate that the instructables team have to make money, but there is already enough ads without this. It is invasive of other people who happen to be around you and invasive of you too.

Hello Citizens of Instructables Land, Has anyone had any experience in dealing with eMachineShop? How does it compare to other forms of prototyping services? How easy is their custom CAD application to learn? How much do the parts tend to cost? Is it worth the effort to get involved?thanks,Randy

Hi folks, I posted an instructables yesterday and its still not coming up in the main site or searchable. There has been a lot of discussion on boingboing and other sites on the project, but no access to instructables. It would be really nice to have it be accessible so people can refer to it. Normally it only takes a few hours. Help!;.) thanks. here's the direct link: https://www.instructables.com/id/Making-Medicinal-Salt/

Hey guys, in in latest iOS, using the latest feedly news reader, I noticed last week that the view all button just reloads the current page rather than a new page containing all steps. I.e. If I'm looking at steps 1-3 of 10, view all steps just reloads the 1-3 page. I am not signed in while using feedly. When using mobile safari, I am signed in, but it seems to be loading all steps by default. (Which I love btw) many thanks, steven

I'm part of a club at school, SECME (Science, Engineering, Computer, and Mathematics Enrichment). We do a lot of things like water bottle rockets, mousetrap cars, egg drop, website design, and more. I'm part of the webpage design team, and I need some page ideas for the website. So far I have the homepage, what we do at SECME at our school, pictures, videos, and external links. What else could I add to the website? There is a maximum of 10 pages. Thanks!

So, I was searching for my instructables name, and a weird site called "Rissing.com" cam up, with my instructable and many others. I doubt that it is a legit site, and I thought you guys might want to know about it. http://tetractinose2.rssing.com/chan-1534415/latest.php I would not recommend going to the site, who knows what malware awaits?

I love the instructables website and almost everything works just as it should be... but the mobile version of the site (at least the one for android, i don't know how the iphone version is) is not cool to navigate at all, there seem to be things missing at every end and since the last changes i don't even know how to open the non-mobile-version with my smart phone (a button at the bottom of the page that says "full site" could give you the impression that it would take you to the normal version of the website, but it doesn't....) anymore - before some changes were made at least that was possible. i also have the instructables app, which is totally fine, it is a bit basic but since it is just an app i can live with that. so one could argue that i could just wait a bit until i'm at home with my laptop to enjoy instructables and don't care about the mobile version, but every once in a while i really want to access the site from my smartphone and it keeps on being annoying. so maybe if there would be a way to make the mobile website version better or the normal version easy accesible with a mobile phone it would make my very happy!

Instructables.com never recognizes me from one visit to the next. Every time I click on a link in an email (unless I already have instructables windows open, and I'm logged in) it doesn't know who I am. Granted, this is bordering on a feature request, but I do think that it should be considered a bug. Since pretty much every other website that isn't a bank account recognizes the user, I would call it a bug unless there is a reason for forcing the user to log in on every visit. Thanks EDIT (Aug 21, 2012): I was using Windows XP with Firefox when I had this problem, and it was consistent for at least a year across different machines. Since posting this question, instructables hasn't asked me to log in again! Maybe it's because I switched to Chrome a couple of days ago, or maybe it was just me. Since this is not a typical, please never mind.

Just found an interesting website I thought I'd share:http://dangerouslyfun.com/They've got a fairly small set of projects but they look pretty well done. From the About page:"DangerouslyFun.com provides instructions for creating various physical devices, many of which are dangerous. This information is provided in recognition that dangerous things are sometimes really fun."Amen brother!

I want to be able to display a webpage on to a large monitor. (so people can view the site when they are outside for example) The website would update in real time (ajax based) but is essentially pretty basic just some images and text (no flash)/simple design. I have had a bit of a look around at supplier sites and most seem to have their own system where you can add in images/videos to display, or a program where you can input data yourself. I was looking at was something like Samsung smart TV but I think this is to good for what I need as I want to keep the price down, or Opera TV but I am not sure if I am looking in the right direction. I don't really want to have a lap top connected to this device (and be connecting via a cable) ideally you could talk to the device via a smartphone over wireless/bluetooth. I don't know where to start but I reckon if someone could point me in the right direction here I could make my idea happen?

Marylander Chris Clark has spent less than $300 maintaining the domain name pizza.com since 1994.After reading that the website vodka.com had sold for $3m two years ago, he put pizza.com on an online auction site. Starting at $100, it leapt to $2.6m after only a week.What do you think? Was it worth the money?What domain name do you think would be worth buying now as an investment for the future?Pizza.comPress TV storyBBC slantClark's local press

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.

Please get rid of the Craftsman ad that autoplays its sound. It's loud and obnoxious, especially when I open multiple pages in tabs, and I can't remember/determine which tab has the ad. Even better, provide feedback to Craftsman that while we may like their tools, we don't like autoplay sounds on web pages. Thanks!

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!

Hey, So I just wanted to give you guys some feedback on the changes around the site. I don't have the intent to make a whiney rant and all I say is is open to suggestions and changes ofcourse ;) So most of the changes are good. There has been some discussing about some of these changes but that's not what this topic is about. what it is about is that most of the time something get's changed there is no forum topic about it. I know you guys always like some feedback on what you do but without a proper topic made by you guys this will just result in members posting topics everywhere and you probably won't notice most of them. So what I think you should do is every time something changes on the site you should make a topic about it (ofcourse about serious things not when you change something trivial) Because I saw that the site has updated again. Not bad it actually looks good but I really don't know what I'm looking at at the frontpage. Is it the featured list or is it the popular list? And for that matter I have seen that there are many people who don't know about the new feature system that is divided into classes or even know how it works. So my suggestion is that a small topic should be written explaining the stuff the updates do every time something happends with the site or how it works. This way we (the members) understand what the new features do and you guys get feedback without having to look at 12 different topics. Michel

Need a custom website? How about $150 then $40 a year? I'm down to the wire attempting to raise additional money for my trip to LA to cover the Series Finale of We're Alive for our Podcast the We're Alive FanCast on the MickRed Network. http://werealive.mickred.com/downloads/custom-website/ I can even embed your Instructables on your website. Thanks MrRedBeard

I love instructables. I wouldn't want to take advantage of a public forum like this, so I have a question about etiquette: can I post a link to my blog/website at the end of my instructable?
Posted by karenelisam 9 years ago
I doubt anyone will read this or care but I'll put it out there. The Instructables website needs a facelift and needs to remove all the little annoying flyover login boxes linked to seemingly every little thing on the page. The site design itself could do with some work on the layout and usability.
