I have posted a story. it shows for about an hour. then when i go and check it, it's not there anymore. i posted it 2 times cuz this thing happens on both times...
I tried looking up my stories but their not showing up and i dont know why
For those with no results found in searching: What is the name of your story and what have you tired searchignf or so far?For those with missing parts: Make sure you've clicked "save and publish" and not "save", and check that they're in the correct story group.@xxfloorxxx that's the rating of the story. It's advised that only those 13 and older can watch.
I had a problem at first where I couldnt figure out how to write the description. so i copyed and pasted my story 2 times.then i deleted the original and the next one because i finally figured it out. now when i type in my username in the search bar... my story comes up 3 times deleted without the one i didnt delete. I KNOW i didnt delete because it comes up when u click my username, but if it doesnt come up in the search bar no one will read it... pls help!
i write my story on my laptop. when im done for the day i save it 2 times just in case. and i use to get My book getting updated by getting a notification on my ipad, iphone and email. welll now i have to update all the time. and no matter how many times i save it or update: my work is only shown on the laptop, no not my phone or ipad.just the laptop. my iphone and ipad are @ the same spot. i've tried to updating who noes who long, and i've been writing alot more and it doesn't show up. only on my laptop yes but not on my devices. i think this is a problem. if my work doesn't show how will be people continue reading? i don't noe what to do but for now im saying this. i hope someone finds the solution, if not im going to go balistic.
My story, Fear and Blood, isn't coming up when I search. Is there a delay period from the time of publication to the time it shows up as searchable? I've tried searching the name and tags as well.
hey..can you help me with my problem?
You see, a friend told me that my work and even my username is NOWHERE to be found :(((. She don't have an account, so she just searched.
When I go online to check it out (I didn't log in that time), it's true that my work was not found. So do my username.
Please can you do something about this... :(( Thanks!
@Theworldturns: I found fifty pages of results. Did you make sure to look through each and every one?@ulschiffer it seems like you're not using the "find people" search.http://www.wattpad.com/users/find/ulschiffer%2520As for your stories not being in the search, read the advice earlier in my post to "the world turns".
Hello, my 3 stories are lost AGAIN for the nth time, i don't know how many times this had happened. Can you please retrieve it again? Thank You. :))

I have lost three of my stories entirely. When I look them up I only find the first chapter. I've tried to repost them from my phone but it won't work. This has never happened to me before, and when I tried to post it from the site they aren't there.
The only story that is still there is my finished story. Is there any way that you can recover them?
why does my work hasn't been showed after i published it yesterday i published my brand new story
Your story wont come up in profile because its not published when you publish a story it get saved to profile where you can read it.
To carry on with your story just go on to my works and edit then save it at the end.
Okay, it's 11:07, and at 11:05 it was working. WHY ISN'T IT WORKING! I HAVE NOTHING TO DO ALL DAY BUT WRITE AND IT'S BEING STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My story is not showing up when I put it in search.... this is so disgusting.
My story is still not showing up.!!!
The title of my story is Sure Or Not Sure??? Please check on this, also on the works of others.
I posted my story, along with 3 chapters, but my classmate (and reader of my story) said that there wasn't any story or chapters
Everytime I click the Publish button, it just brings me back up to the space where the story title shows, and it does nothing else. Can't figure it out!!!!
I have published part of my book and it did show up but i wrote more of my book the next day and there was no publish button so i hit save and it showed up in my story on the laptop but not on my ipod. what do I do???

Please help me 'coz it is so long already and i don't have a back-up copy of that story...hope u'll have a time to help me...
Okay, I don't why but in every one of my books, it seems that half of the chapter goes missing. In my first book, half of the prologue is missing and its' really frustrating me because I don't have a hard copy of the prologue anymore. And my pictures and videos seem to disappear too. HELP!
I posted a story, then i logged out and tried to read it but it says my story is no longer available? Please help me! My book is pg13 and its title is "Because of Strawberry Milk Shake".
my story has been deleted eventhough i didnt delete it.
I rewrite again my story, but again it was deleted. Please help. The title is "Mr. Torpe meets Ms. Pakipot" Please fixed this. Thankyouu.
I uploaded some parts to my story I'm writing, but when I'm on my profile page, it says it has that 5 full parts that I've uploaded. But when I actually click on my story, it only has one part. Can I recover the other parts that I've uploaded??
Why is it unavailable? I want to open it but it said it's unavailable.
Hi there! I've been experiencing technical difficulties like the question mentioned above. I posted a new chapter to my Tagalog/Filipino story, Lure A Pianist's Heart, and it showed up for about 30 minutes or so. After that, when I went to my profile page and clicked on the story, my update didn't appear at all. But when I used the direct link of the new chapter (sent in my email), the update appears! Another thing, the reads in the new chapter wasn't included in the overall read count of the whole story, but the votes are. It's frustrating. What exactly is going on? o_O
I'm trying to submit my story but its always saved as a DRAFT.. i don't know why, i've tried figuring it out but i just don't know how..
My story plus my 'following' (people whom i follow) is not showing at my profile WHY ? :((
hi. I have recently posted my story (2 days ago) and my friend had only posted hers for 1 day and gotten 40 viewers while i only have 14. I thot that maybe ppl dont take intrest in my story but i keep updating and i still have the same number of viewers so i told my friends about my story and they said they couldnt find it. they even spent a good half hour scrolling thru the books that have the same title and they searched my username and its not avalible. So i typed in my username on my fren's accnt and it rlly was unavalible! Help pls?
people cannot find my work and it is not rated R or PG. it is only rated G and people also cannot find my profile. what do i do?
I don't believe that many new questions can't be answered by quickly reading the thread. Answers come to those who look for them, not to those who wait.If you have a geniune concern, please PM me. I likely will no longer answer questions here, as no-one seems to want to read the answers.

From Lynk55 - As a newcomer I have posted a Prologue & first 2 chapters of my modern gothic story The Man & The Myth - what next? Wait and see if genre surfers pick up on it? As you may have guessed I'm not terribly web savvy, nor do I use social networking sites.

hi, umm.. okkay well I haven't been on here in a few months so I'm not sure if it's a recent feature or if it's been this way for a while, but I remember when I was last on here you could click 'manage story' and it had two boxes with options for transferring chapters/parts in and out of a story, making it either readable (or published) or unreadable. I'm trying to edit a few chapters but I'd like to take them down so that I can do so on word and I can't find an option of doing so? could anyone help me please as I'd really like to make them unreadable for a while..?
Thank you, it's really appreciated :3
I can't edit my own story. There's a thing called smokeybear.com there. Why is that?
i've been waiting for 3 days but my story won't showed up anymore :(
