Can't see private Instructable Answered

Just created a private 'ible that I want a colleage to review before I make it public - the generated link links to the "Instructables is down page" everytime, I also tried letting it generate a new URL, and that failed too.

Wait half an hour, It should then work. It might have gotten "stuck in the filters"

If it doesn't, You should email service@instructables.com

Why would you make a private Instructable? You can send someone a Preview of the draft (in the editor)

I can't even see it MYSELF from the link they gave you. The idea of the bugs forum is to report bugs. Anything which routes to the "Instructables is down page" is a major bug.

As Kiteman says, private Ibles are very useful.

And it appears you can only send a preview to an existing member, whereas you can send a private ible to anyone.

I'm actually not sure that it's what generated "Instructables is down". The site was down yesterday for like an hour for me too

It was only down for me when I clicked on my Ible link, everything else worked fine.

There was a chunk of time yesterday when the only page working was the front page - maybe you were working on a cached page?

Also, I waited 12 hours before reporting a bug. Private Ibles may well not be filtered.

Private instructables can be shared amongst a wider group of people (say, as part of a company's internal training programme).
