Category Filter for Story Favorites and Alerts/Follows

23 Aug

Replacing the deprecated category sorting option we had before, we are introducing a more useful and powerful category filtering option to the story management pages for both Favorites and Alerts/Follows. This should help those with hundreds if not thousands of favorites/follows in various categories.


  1. DocX send limit has been increased to 100.
  2. Favorited stories management page now has a “Category Filter” option.
  3. Followed/Alerted stories management page now has a “Category Filter” option.


  • (mobile) Broken links in some areas of the communities section.

    What’s happening? We’ve had a very poor sort function for over a month now, but even that seens to have given up in the last couple of days. Sorting by ‘story update date’ now produces a list of mixed date updates. Please look into it urgently.

    Did you fixing this also remove your ability to see when someone reports a fic as plagiarized? Has your email address changed?

    Would you please add a category filter for one-shots?
    In- progress/ Complete/ One-Shot
    Sometimes I am just looking for a quick read.

    Is there any way for the mobile version of to filter stories by if they are complete or not? Sometimes I am just looking for a story that is definitely finished. We have this on any regular computer (by filtering with the status option), why not the mobile version as well?

    If I may, I have a few suggestions for the filter for both Favorites and Story Alerts:

    1) A filter for Story Status. Like if a story is either Complete or In Progress.

    2) A filter for how many chapters are in a story. Some people would like a quick read now and then.

    3) A filter for whether or not a story on either list is a crossover. Filing crossovers with the single category stories can be a bit confusing for some users.

    I hope you guys take these suggestions into consideration. I am but a simple authoress trying to help improve this awesome site for her and her follow authors….

      Being a oneshot does not mean that it is a quick read. The limit is 9 MB, which allows for novels like War And Peace to be posted as oneshots.
