Hi, I accidentally published a story that didn’t have anything in it, and now I can’t figure out how to delete it. Does anyone know how to do this? I’m pretty new to this site, so I’m having a bit of difficulty figuring out how to do things.

    I think, if you enter your published library and pull up the table of contents for a published piece, when you can see the “chapters”, there’s a little 3-dot selectable icon at the right of the chapter bar. If you select that, you should be allowed to edit or to delete that particular chapter … I’d love to say it gets rid of the title of you dump the content of your piece, but I’m a trifle uncomfortable testing anything as I’d delete my work. 🙂 Hope this helps you.

      Hi, thanks for your help. I’ve been able to delete the content, but not the actual book. Oh well. I’ll just have to use it for something else. Sorry that I haven’t acknowledged your help yet. I haven’t been on in a while.

    hiya guys — havent been on here inna while but noticed your concerns referencing the “deleting” issue. I think if you go into the “create/add an entry” area of your published work, there should be a selection bar with the chapter title and three dots to the side. If you click those three dots, you can either edit your content or delete what’s viewable. That might be the only way to significantly alter what’s available to the readers.

    Hope this helps – if only slightly. Please let me know if you learn anything else.

    Cheers.

      ps – dunno what all the Report Issue stuff is at the end of my post. No idea what’s happening there – but again – just trying to help.

    I’m having the same issue. I’ve looked at the ‘Edit Entry’ pages and as far as I can see there is no existing “Delete” button. 🙁
