Searching for a story

If you are having trouble finding a story on Wattpad, it may be due to one of the following issues:

  1. Your account story language is different from the language the story that you are searching for is set to.
    • For example, if your account story language is set to English but the story you are searching for is set to French, you will not be able to find this story in the search results. For more information on these language settings, please check the article Change Language.
    • If you're searching for your own story and not able to find it, please check if you've set your story language to the right one. For more information on how to do that, please check the article Editing your story details.
  2. The story you are searching for is rated Mature. Mature stories are only visible to users who are 18 years or older. In order to view such stories, you must have a birth date on your Wattpad account that shows that you are 18 years or older.
  3. The story you are searching for has a common title. In such cases, please try refining your search using tags to narrow down the results or searching for the author’s username instead which will bring up all stories they have written.

    If none of the above applies, please submit a ticket through Support and we will be happy to investigate further.
