World Homepage Upgrades
Faster Loading Times
- Right/middle-clicking a Category will open to a new page.
- Clicking on a closed category expands the right-side panel to display the Category description and all article blocks within that Category. Clicking on an open category will also collapse the right-side panel.
- Disabling the Table of Contents disables the World Codex column, and loads maps in its place.
Custom World Homepage Column Layout
A special feature has also been implemented for Deities as requested! A new full width column above the 3 columns is open to any sort of content. Truly, the Deities have the power!
Draggable Map Markers
Maps got some love recently with the addition of draggable map markers! Editing your maps is becoming easier and easier.
Calendars Releases v.0.4 – V.0.5.1
We value your feedback
Remember to check out the Codex Guide to Calendars for more information and feel free to leave feedback directly to our developers here! You can even check out their backlog! Huge shoutout to Ademal for providing all the screenshots you are about to see in this WALL of mighty-timey-organizey goodness!
Copy Calendar ID to Clipboard
Like everything else has, from articles to maps, where it copies to the clipboard.
Editor mode for Calendars is now tabbed like presentation mode.
Holiday Editor deletion
Mark holidays without notes! Use this for:
Styling the day without having text
Showing a title without having an associated note
Custom Event Icon
CSS Calendar Selector
Conveniently style your calendars with a per-calendar css selector!
//Where [id] is the calendar id. (ex: calendar-20011)
Add BBCode to style descriptions to months from the editor! On the calendar presentation, these will appear above the table of dates and below the navigation bar. These sections do not support [containers:] and [sections:] at this time, but do support all other standard site BBCode.
Not strong with the ways of CSS but still want event stylings? We got your back. There’s 10 default styles that you can add to events with the click of a button!
First weekday toggle
Set your calendar to restart the week at the start of each month.
Latest editor visual rehaul…
What you see above is the most recent view of the Calendars editor to date! Wow, what a whirlwind of upgrades to this newly forged feature! All this was just for Calendars. We’re not even done with all the updates! Remember to hydrate and maybe grab a drink before you keep on reading.
New Theme: Terror from the deep
If you haven’t noticed recently, a new dark blue theme has emerged from the depths! Our very own TJ designed this theme for the entire World Anvil site. You can now choose between Terror from the Deep, Heroes, or Villains theme under your Interface Settings! Feedback is welcome in our Discord, just ping @TJ | Melior under the #development-discussion channel!
For enabling members with more monetization tools, Dimitris implemented the ability to display private links and blocks! He has also moved monetization configurations to its own section within your World Configuration Settings.
Article blocks now inherit the overrides from the World Global Cover, Category Cover, and/or Theme cover.
