If the fic is chaptered, you can only page through it chapter by chapter.

The obvious exceptions are if the fic has only one chapter and if you cut and paste all the chapters into your word program under one file.

How to update 'Other stories by the same author" field?


Hi - I've noticed how many stories in the fanfic section end with a list of links to other stories by the same author. Having (finally!) gotten a second story up and running, why does this not happen for me? What do I have to do to add it?

Thanks, jane99.

You shouldn't have to do anything extra to have those links be there, I don't think. I did notice that in multi-chaptered fics, the links only appear on the last chapter.

But I can't! *wails pathetically*

It's not there for me when I'm logged in, or when I'm logged out. I can see the links in everyone else's stories, though.

However, if you're all seeing it, then it must just be my computer or something. This is what comes from belting it when it won't behave... *grrr*

EDIT: No, wait! MmeFleiss is right. I see it now. *feels very stupid, backs slowly away, whistling casually*

Thankyou!

MISC QUESTION:
Is there a printer-friendly mode for viewing stories here?


Hi there

Sorry if this has been asked elsewhere but I've not had any luck playing with the search tools...

Is there a printer-friendly version of the site/stories available? I tend to prefer reading stories in a dead-tree format rather than on a screen.

I'm not explaining myself very well so let me give you an example using a different fic site:

Site

The above link is for a fic on the Sink into your Eyes site, note the chapter and story links on the right hand side

Clicking on the story print link gives you the below:

Print Story

As you can see - its much easier to read, won't cause any problems printing (since theres no coloured backgrounds or any of that stuff) and theres a choice between per-chapter and per-story ready which is useful for example if I'm reading using my little internet tablet - can view the entire story at once so don't have to be constantly connected to grab the next chapter.

Anyway - is such functionality available in Portkey? I've been poking around for a couple of days now and can't find anything but I'm hoping I'm just being blind and/or stupid smile.gif

Hi! Call me Pen. :)

SMUT! Click if you're an adult PK oldbie!
Read our feature on author HARRYS MISTRESS!





There are more appropriate forums/threads; but I suppose the mods will forgive you for making this understandable newbie error. wink.gif

Anyway, if you're asking which story came first, and which came as sequels, then the Fic Recs Engine* can help you with questions like that. Here are the search results for "madscientist". Click on the fic titles to view the details for each fic. Say you viewed those for "War of Shadows", you'll see the ff sequence at the bottom of the window:

1- Darkness before the Dawn
2 Sequel - Lions of Gryffindor
3 Sequel - War of Shadows

Apparently, "Circle's End" is set in another "universe".

If you want to comment on those stories, follow the "link to discussion forum" shown in the rec details. Hope that helps. smile.gif

*you access the Fic Rec Engine by clicking the "Fic Recs"/"Recs" icon on the top right of Portkey's header


--------

EDIT May2008:
You can also check the story summaries and the date they were posted in PK.
