Setting Up previous Fiction Dashboard
Thanks in advance.

Yeah, I am with you there on that. Why is there so much white space being wasted to the left hand side of the screen when in Edit Mode?
And the Chapters on the Dashboard are now listed upside-down, with Chapter One on the bottom, instead of on top.

It is a sad thing, but web page designers purposefully create pages that require clicking and scrolling. It has to do with advertising.
No one wants to advertise, it seems, on a web page where the user isn't constantly clicking and scrolling.

Agree 100%. The new dashboard is just chock full of completely irrelevant information instead of what I actually want to see. I have five fictions up and have to click each of them separately just to see if there have been new followers or ratings. Six clicks for what I could previously see instantly with a single click, that's a pretty massive downgrade in terms of web design. Meanwhile, things like total chapters, total word count, how many reviews in total, highest ranking and so on, I personally do nothing with this trivia, yet it takes up the most important part of the screen. Yikes.

I never would've thought they cared enough to do that, or that it was even technically possible. Simply fantastic work, THANK YOU!

Don't take it the wrong way, but it couldn't have been very easy, and not all that many were even asking for it, so I wouldn't have been surprised had you thought the time investment wasn't worth it. Most other websites probably wouldn't have bothered. But again, thank you. I'm impressed, all right.
