Guide to Authors
Co-authors are a Guild Feature!
If you want to add an author to your world, please consider supporting World Anvil!
WriterWriter can create articles as drafts, but they can't publish them nor edit existing articles. They can't view private content unless they are also a subscriber.
EditorEditors can create articles and publish them, and they can also edit existing content. They have access to all private content, including secrets.
Co-ownerCo-owners not only can create and edit any kind of content, but they can also edit your world's configuration, the world CSS and manage access rights. Make sure you trust your co-owners!
Add an authorFirst, access the Access Rights page. You can do so from the Go to world menu or from the menu at the left side of your screen:
FAQDo my authors need to be guild members? No, they don't need to. The number of authors you can have depends on your Guild membership level. Can my authors "go rogue"? That depends on the rank you give them. Co-owners can change all your world settings, so it's recommended you are careful with this permission. Editors can delete any articles. Writers can only delete the articles they have created (and can't access the edit interface of any other article). How many authors can I have? This depends on your Guild rank. Journeymen, the lowest rank, have 2 author slots. Please note that these slots count for all your worlds (i.e. If you have two author slots, you can have two in a single world or one in two different worlds, but not two in each world).
