Over the next few weeks, you'll notice some improvements to the Wattpad website based on your feedback. We hope you enjoy the new features!


Your profile now has all your social information right in the header, so you can show off how many stories you've written, reading lists you've curated, and the people who follow you. People you follow is still available via the Following tab. We've made it easier to share your profile, too!

We've improved the About section, with colored social profile icons and quick access to Wattpadders you've recently followed, so you can easily stay connected.

Your profile now highlights three stories with more detailed descriptions and story stats. Remember: you can reorder the way your stories are displayed by following this guide.

You'll also be able to see your drafts right alongside your published stories (don't worry - they're only visible to you).

Lastly, we've highlighted your reading lists so that others can browse through your curated collections. We've added metadata for stories within each list, so you can quickly look for stories that matter to you. You can also now easily add new reading lists and manage them right from your profile.

Reading Lists

Great news —you can now reorder stories within a reading list as well as reading lists themselves on the Wattpad website. To move stories within a reading list, click Edit and then drag the story to where you'd like it. The same goes for moving entire reading lists!

Tag Pages

We've improved our tag pages to optimize discovery. On top of What's Hot and What's New, you can now see Related Writers, Related Reading Lists, and Related Tags for a tag page.

Now that you've learned more about the new changes, go ahead and explore the new Wattpad experience!
