It’s April! Or as we call it here on World Anvil, Adventure April! Here’s everything to know about what going on in World Anvil this month.

Dev updates this month

🎨 Colors for everyone!

Changing text color used to be a Guild feature—not anymore! You can now use the [color] tag to change the text color AND background for specific sections of your article!

For more information about this, check this quick how-to.

🔠 Alphabetical ordering

The “Order A-Z” button in a category will now simply reset the article order (the default order is alphabetical) instead of creating a custom alphabetical order. This means that new articles added to the category will automatically be ordered alphabetically. This was added thanks to user Vguadagno after this feature request.

Check out the Changelog page on World Anvil for the full changelog.
