Posting or deleting a story comment

If you’d like to share your thoughts about a particular story part with other readers or the author, you can leave a comment. This is one of the many exciting features of Wattpad as you can connect with readers and writers about the stories you love!

Each comment can be a maximum of 2000 characters long and there are no limits to the number of comments you can leave.

There are two types of comments:

  • Regular comments - displayed at the end of a story part.
  • Inline comments - displayed in the text of the story.

You can also delete a comment that you have left, as well as any comments left by others on a story you wrote at any point.  All inline comments will also appear at the end of a story part
