Hi! Call me Andy. :)




ERROR MESSAGE:
Uploading to a temporary location... SUCCESSFUL
Tidying Chapter Text... FAILED


SHORT ANSWER: Try uploading in HTML format. Read this thread: How to convert documents to HTML.
~gal-texter May2008





Well for now I managed to upload in the .htm format, but .doc still doesn't work. I was attempting to upload a new chapter to my story today but I received this error.

The files was in .doc format, but all of my newest chapters have been uploaded in that format and have worked fine. Sometimes I recieve an error when my chapter is left open, but it was definitely closed this time.

here is a link to the story if it helps.

MOD NOTE: merging this into a related thread.

I don't seem to be able to upload any chapters to my stories.

Everytime I try upload it comes up with this thing saying fread function needs to be more than 0 words and that the tidying text has failed.

This has been going on for quite some time now and is very frustrating. if anyone knows why this is happening, it would be very much appreciated, as I can see that other people have been able to upload there's yet I cannot upload mine.

Are you HTML? Saving your word page into a web page because it won't accept a word page any more. If you are using HTML but it's still not working, you'll need to contact a mod and let them know that there's something blocking you from updating.

Just try different programmes till you find one that works really.

that has been happening to me too when i tried to upload a chapter saved in Word Document: *doc.
i tried uploading a chapter in Web Page *htm *html format and it worked.
i'm not sure WHY there is that problem since i never had trouble before uploading *doc. before, but all i can say is try saving your chapters in *html web page format and uploading them

I myself am wondering why i can't view the Art Gallery.

I also saw that message, RaineMalfoy, when I was trying to upload a chapter, eventually it just went away and I was able to upload again.

I'll try using HTML, but I find it odd that it is deciding to not let us use word documents anymore.

I haven't got a clue how to contact mods, levio.
