MOD NOTE: merging this into a related thread.

Once a story chapter is posted, is there anyway to edit it without deleting it and starting all over?

I don't get tons of reviews, but I realize I made a glaring error in my latest post that I'd love to correct. The only way I can see to make the corrections is to delete the whole chapter and lose the reviews, then repost.

Thanks for your help,

Yes, you can update a chapter by:

1 - in your control panel click on "Story Edit / Upload"
2 - click "Upload Chapter" for the story in question
3 - in the pull-down box, instead of selecting "[New] Chapter X" select ther chapter in question "[Exists] Chapter N"
4 - enter the chapter name
5 - enter/browse for the document WITH the changes

And you're done. The reviews stay intact and the chapter is updated.

Hi! Call me Pen. :)

Copying these explanations that are included in the automated emails sent to an applicant when a fic mod approves their author application:

In order to replace a chapter you *must* do the following:

1. Login to the Control Panel

2. Click on Story Edit/Upload chapter from the control panel

3. Go to Upload Chapter

4. Click the drop down menu that has the list of chapters.

5. Fill in the rest of the information as you do with a normal upload.

6. Press upload. Verify.

7. All done.

Using this option will not make you lose your reviews. It also will not make the story appear on the "New/Updated" page, or send emailed chapter alerts about the story.


I've paraphrased the last paragraph. wink.gif

Would the reviews be affected when editing the story's summary or other properties?

Hey Gal-Texter,

Got a new question for you. If I replace my present story summary with a new one do I lose my reviews or anything like that? I wouldn't think so but I'd rather be sure.
Thanks as always,

You're correct in thinking that it's safe to change your story summary. It won't affect the reviews. smile.gif Changing the other story properties like story title or chapter title won't affect the reviews either.

Missing chapter + discrepancy in chapter stats for reviews and hits



Hey guys,

Just wanted to give you a heads up about the statistics page of the fanfic side of the site...recently I've noted that some chapters I had uploaded long ago, are missing...the reviews for them are still there...

Also, for one of my fics, there's a discrepancy between the number of reviews that the stats say I have, and the actual number there are...

Not sure if it's an issue with the code, or maybe it's just routine maintenance...can you guys gimme a shout on what it might be?

Thank you in advance.

Can you give us the URL to the story and the missing chapter numbers?

As for the reviews, did you mean that the numbers in your control panel (users.portkey.org) don't match with the numbers shown in fanfiction.portkey.org pages? Can you give us that story's ID # too and the chapter numbers for those mismatched numbers?

You can post the info here or PM them to me, so that I can take a look through the fic admin control panel. The story ID number/s would really be helpful.
