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

I feel really stupid right now, I cant seem to find them =/

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

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

20 Aug, 2019 17:05

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.

No the part above that, where it says ghosts of saltmarsh. I like it but don't want to make everyone think that my world is set in Saltmarsh, as I don't know what that entails. Just a picture would be great.

That looks to be a default world cover, you could easily replace that.

Hello, I noticed in the description of the Galaxy Anvil theme it says it has "plenty of customization options". How do I access these options? I don't see a set of documentation for working with it specifically.

I had a question about the Stranger Worlds Theme, I am trying to use it but when I try to see my timeline it makes both the words and background almost both white which makes it very hard to read, is there any way to fix this?

I would be happy beyond worlds if you guys added a Norse/Proto-Germanic theme. ᚦᚢᚴᚴ ᚠᛁᚱᛁᚱ!

is it possible to take one of these themes and change only say, the default header image?

22 Dec, 2020 22:07

I am wondering if there is any way to use one theme for the world, but a different theme for certain articles?

How do you make the font bigger? Some of the themes have really tiny fonts.

13 Feb, 2021 04:51

Lemme' know the theme you need the font bigger on, and I can help!

Well there are several. I tried Dungeons & Dragons, Bright Fantasy, and Great GM. The standard text fonts on all three styles looked really tiny on the World Homepage, with lots of empty space on the sides. I think the homepage would look more accessible and legible if you could choose the font size. 12 would be nice.
