Seriously? I already got votes and like for my private chapter, which I meant to make public the next day. But because there is no way to change that I had to lose them again.

^As I am not paid for this, I'm going to refuse to answer your question. Everything you need is here.

If you want to change a private chapter to public, all you need to do is re-post that chapter, and when you see Options on the side, you click the Advanced button and it will show Private and Public. Click whichever you want and then your done. :)

Even if I set it to Public, once I Save & Publish, it still has the Private padlock and says for fans and friends only..

Can all the negatives and know-it-all's just shut up for a sec please? If no one AT ALL except you can see the story sometimes it's better to ask Wattpad to help, otherwise, @F3ctom is right, just re-post it and it should come up as public.

I had the same problem and ending up putting my chapter in word and changed a few things in the document (ex. font size) and then pasted it in when I clicked add new part. When I reposted it, it was public again so you might have to try that out (and I also sent like three requests to wattpad and they didn't do anything to help at all.)

So I had the same problem and I read all the forum posts trying to find the answer but I couldn't find one so I decided to try something myself and it worked!

This is how I did it: I copied the chapter that was private, then deleted that chapter. The on my works I pressed 'add new part' and pasted the chapter in the box and saved it (Don't publish it yet). Then I went back to My Works and pressed 'manage' on the book that has private chapters. I selected the chapter right at the bottom of the scroll thing and pressed the up button until the chapter was in the right place so that the book was in the right order. Then Press save. After that, I pressed edit on the chapter, went to advanced, pressed public (even though it was already on it) and the pressed save and publish.

There you go! That should have done it :D

My first chapter went private for no reason, so I deleted the chapter, and copy and and pasted it into a new chapter, I published that and it was still private!!!!! and if I go to advanced settings in edit theres nothing about private/public. and this is getting really frustrating when I didn't even want it to be private in the first place

This is not helpful because everyone says to delete it then repost it or to go into settings and that doesn't work either. WHAT IS EVEN THE POINT OF MAKING SOMETHING FREAKING PRIVATE? IT DIDN'T EVEN ASK IF I WANTED IT PUBLIC OR PRIVATE. WATTPAD GET YOURSELF STRAIGHT.

Just accept that Wattpad has terrible customer support and feedback will never be listened by the editors. All they are working on is the mobile app while the service itself is so outdated and rusty that it makes me cringe every time I log on. This thread is literally years old and nobody has listened, which proves my point. I myself have decided to give up on Wattpad and I only promote my stories here, when the actual tales are posted to some better sites, which ma

Everyone's saying to delete it and repost it. But I already got votes on it and likes. I don't want to delete it. Does any one else have any other ideas?

copy and past your chapter onto a word document, delete your current chapter, re-make your chapter, and paste what you saved on the word document onto your new chapter. Save & publish and you're good to go.

Either, delete the chapter and reupload it. OR you have to accent the curse words and stuff. All my chapters kept coming up private due to the harsh words. I simply added accents on the top, and I'm back to public.
