May I ask how do i apply these themes?

25 Sep, 2018 23:44

The standard themes can all be found under your World Configuration, near the bottom.

Is it a guild feature?

26 Sep, 2018 17:17

It is! I'll get that added a bit more clearly in the Guide. All CSS is Guild Feature, but there have been talks about having 1 or 2 non-fantasy themes available for free accounts.

Hi! This may be little weird of a question, especially when I'm pretty new here, but I am pondering; if one would like to help the community, for example by making a theme, how one would go about it?   I'm currently unemployed and I've made my own theme to my own world recently, and I was wondering if since I got free time and experience with CSS if there would be a way I could help by making a styling theme or something in the future! x3 Just as thanks for the awesome website. :3

Your best bet would to be to email the WA team at! You can also join the discord and take a look in the various CSS channels to get feedback and ask some of the staff in there.

Is there a way to change words on the title picture, but keep the beautiful theme.

Do you mean where the themes have 'Anvilverse' ? That will change based on the title of your world! These are just attempting to show the same text across all the different themes.
