As most of you know, World Anvil offers a multi-tiered paid subscription service that we call the Guild. Payments range as low as $4 usd a month (or $48 usd a year)- all the way up to $12 usd (or $144 usd a year).

What’s the Guild Do?

Joining the Guild gives you access to a lot of really amazing features meant augment the basic World Anvil toolset… Including subscriber groups, the ability to make your worlds and articles private, extra storage space, the ability to add co authors, and more. These different benefits scale with each tier you purchase- like the Sage tier’s ability to whitelabel their worlds.

While most of these extra bells and whistles are tier locked at different levels, however? Our most popular tool that all Guild members have access to remains the ability to use custom Css.

The Heck Is CSS?

Css is a super simple coding language the tells webpage how to look when you view them. And as far as coding languages go, it’s incredibly easy to learn. Utilizing it can really make your world stand out among the millions of worlds on World Anvil.

Not every World Anvil user has the time to learn Css, though- or the brain for it… I know I cerstainly struggle with it- and I’m often called a Css Wizard! But that’s why we offer a selection of pre-made themes for Guild members, that way everyone can access it regardless of skill level.

Each of our pre-made themes are created by other World Anvil users from the community. They come in a range of styles suitable for different genres- and installing them is as simple as 1, 2, 3; simply navigate to your world configuration dashboard, select one of our themes from the drop down located on the “Themes & Styling” tab, and save the changes! you can even modify them on your own if you know a little code, just by using the other tools we provide for custom Css.

Originally there were ten themes available to any Guild member who wanted to use them. We’re proud to announce today, though, that World Anvil has released eight new themes!

Are you excited to see them?
