    Reviewed Tips: What to do to retrieve a fic that won't open or has missing posts

    We've figured out a few tricks to be able to retrieve threads and posts which were targeted by hackers.

    If you notice that a thread is missing posts or won't allow you to go to the following page, you can access its printable version to see it in full. You'll find a "Show Printable Version" button on all threads when you open them. Go to the first post of any thread page. In the top right-hand corner you'll find a series of buttons labelled Thread Tools, Search this Thread, Rate this Thread. etc. If you click on the first one, a drop-down menu will open including the option called "Show printable Version".

    Meanwhile, if you're redirected to the homepage when attempting to open a thread, here's what you can do:

    Scroll down on any page until you get to the bottom. You'll find a series of buttons in the right-hand corner (Contact Us, NS Community, Mod, Archive, Top). Click on the ARCHIVE button, and you'll get a list of all the fics on the boards from which you'll be able to retrieve their printable versions.


    Alternative Trick:
    Hover over the thread and look at the bottom left-hand corner of your screen to see the URL of the story you want to access. Take note of the number in this part of the address printthread.php?t=8720. Then copy and paste the following link on your browser replacing the number "8720" with the one you recorded. Then press enter: http://forums.naughty-seduction.net/...&pp=100&page=1 You'll be redirected to the printable version of the story.

    By the way, you won't be able to leave comments but you can send feedback to the writers via PM or post feedback in the back-up threads I've already opened for some fics. NO NEW BACK-UP THREADS WILL BE CREATED BY THE WAY.

    If you're an author, I suggest adding links to the printable versions of your fics to your master list, so that your readers can leave you feedback there.

    Mod's note: Thanks to chrisrose for the alternative tip.

    Even though I have no idea why some work and others don't, if you have a thread that won't open, you can try this:

    Copy the link address, paste into browser, and remove everything after the ID, so ex:

    http://forums.naughty-seduction.net/...ted-02-15-2015)

    Remove everything after http://forums.naughty-seduction.net/showthread.php/8941

    Are you having trouble retrieving fics from the graveyard? Have you come across stories with missing posts? I can't help you with the latter since my back-up files only include completed fics. As regards the former, don't forget to adjust the Thread Display options at the bottom of the subforum to "Beginning" for the whole list of fics to become visible.
