So What Is SquidgeWorld?

For those of you that only come from eFiction backgrounds (the software that ran Peja's Wonderful World of Makebelieve, among other notable archives), the software that runs SquidgeWorld Archive is something completely new. This software is much more complex - but at the same time, allows you to do so many things.

If you're not quite sure where to start, I made a video of the basic use of SquidgeWorld Archive. Please watch!

How can I add a new work to the archive?

If you've never worked with this software, it's very different than the eFiction software that runs most story archive websites. As such, here is a video for adding a new work to the archive. Notice that I say work, not just story, because the archive can host fics, podfics, and art!

How can I import works from another site?

Importing a work can take a lot, even though it's theoretically faster. In this video, I show you the steps for importing a fic from AO3 to SqWA.

All About Collections (not gift exchanges nor prompt memes)

Interested in finding out about Collections? Collections are just a group of fanworks. They can be your ten favorite fanworks that you wanted to add to a collection, or some other group of works. Here's a video about Collections.

How can I use Collections/Gift Exchanges?

Gift exchanges work just like they do on AO3. But if you're unfamiliar, you can watch the video below for an explanation.

How can I use Collections/Prompt Meme?

Prompt memes work like they do on AO3. But if you're unfamiliar, like I am, then watch the video below for an explanation.
