How do I use the Wattpad Story Widget?

The Story Widget: a new story sharing tool

We introduced an exciting way to share the Wattpad stories you love: the Wattpad Story Widget! This widget allows you to easily share stories on your blog or other websites by embedding the first story part. The widget’s clean and simple design lets users get a snapshot of a story before they get right to reading it.

The main screen in the widget captures all of the pertinent information about the story that has been embedded: title, story cover, writer, reads, votes, comments, genre, and tags. When you click on the arrow on the right side of the widget, the screen slides over to reveal the story description and text from the first part.

In this view, the reader can scroll down through the entire story part within the embed window. When they reach the end and want to continue reading, they can click the Continue reading on Wattpad button.

Anyone can access the story widget by clicking the "..." button to the right of a story description, then selecting "Embed Story".

 

Share gives you the option to promote any story on various platforms. Beneath these options is an Embed box that contains the code needed to insert the story widget into another site. 

To embed the story widget, simply select the code from the Embed bar or from the bottom of the Widget Preview window, and copy-and-paste it into the content of your blog or website. The widget works best in modern browsers like Chrome, Firefox and IE9+. Try it out on one of your own stories and start spreading the word!

Since Wordpress does not allow iframe embeds, you’ll have to use a plugin. Only premium Wordpress accounts will be able to add plug ins.

On Tumblr, copy and paste the embed code under the video icon.

Please let us know if this doesn’t work on your site so we can improve our tools! In addition to that, you can always post a direct link to your Wattpad story or post a Quote Art to attract more readers!
