New Features: Community Features Option and More

We have rolled out numerous features and enhancements this week!

Dimitris has been hammering out so many new worldbuilding tools for you all this week! From a new community features option, to a new way to organize favorite articles, check out details for each item below.


Community Features Option

For those authors or Gamemasters that want to focus on writing/creating and do not want to take part in community challenges or browse other peoples work, this new option allows you to declutter your layout by removing all those mentions/features when you are logged in.

How do you configure this you ask?

  • Go to your Account Details (top right click on your avatar/username)
  • Then click Community Features are Enabled

Subscriber Manageability 

The following changes are very helpful for multiple subscriber groups you are trying to manage and make sure they are viewing the correct content!

  • When using Secrets in articles, you can see the list of the subscriber groups you have assigned the secret to.

  • Subscriber groups are now visible on the bottom of private articles and, as a bonus, on the articles list!

Reading List 

The old Favorites system is separated into LIKES and ADD TO READING LIST

  • LIKES: Notifies the author that their article was liked by you and its a way to give kudos/love to the community.
  • ADD TO READING LIST: Does NOT inform the author, but adds the article in a list for you to read.


  • Added the following Location types in the Building/Landmark template:
    • Natural Wonder
    • Geographic Feature
  • Footers for article presentation is altered to include all the social media of the author, Ko-fi link, and the ability to follow the world the article belongs to. Supporting creators monetizing their worlds is our jam!

Article Footer SM Links

  • Added user-css-image-thumbnail to image-thumb-container for enabling more css customizations!

We hope these various worldbuilding tools leveled up your World Anvil experience!
