I have an adblocker on, so I assume that’s what’s giving the funny results

OH another feature I forgot to mention, if you’re on mobile, you can swipe left and right between chapters to navigate while you’re reading. :smirk:

I thought you were when you guys asked those questions on the forums a while back hehee

But honestly, this site… I just. I’ve only been working on uploading my book and honestly, the way you do the chapters and writing is just so freaking easy. I LOVE IT

You’re honestly amazing, to have done all this. :heart:

Are there plans to make books visible without logging in? One thing I like about Wattpad is that I can share the link for people to read without having the hassle of registering for an account and logging in.

I’ve been spotted! :eyes::see_no_evil:

Do they have a tab function so I can indent paragraphs?

For now, no. I might revisit it once we see how things are progressing.

I’m SO glad. The whole mod team has been helping me figure out the best and most logical way to upload content, so thank them too for all their input lol.

There’s not a tab function per se, but there’s a “text” tab that you can access which allows you to wrap all your content in this code (or similar):

<div style="text-indent: 20px;">Content here</div>

And that will indent every paragraph for you.

Oh, yes…this is exactly how I feel. But I might get over myself eventually and upload the story I’ve been working on.

That’s the 1 thing that pissed me off on wattpad.

We tried to take into consideration what actual writers want and need to use a site as well as how readers consume said writing. Formatting is so important for so many different reasons, as is scheduling and legibility etc, so I’m hoping we’ve tackled most of the things we see many writing sites lacking these days.

I had to manually enter spaces and every edit would take the suckers out, automatically.

I quit fighting with it, but that indent is crucial in dense writing so your brain registers a paragraph break.

Just a question, but do read counts also include the author’s own reads? I don’t want to unintentionally inflate my read count but I can’t stop admiring the formatting :sweat_smile:

I don’t think it does; I scrolled through all my chapters to check for errors but didn’t see my view count go up.

They do, but read counts only count once every 24 hours. So you can’t just keep refreshing a page to inflate your read count. :wink:

I like reading my own stuff. That crap annoys me, too.

Look, ever since I read a PAID novelist who put Turgid Nipples in their romance, I’ve realized that people are too hard on themselves.

Lol
