@Apes When I select my overlay, Step 2 doesn’t show up. Why does it not show up?


Most likely it’s because your overlay is too big :thinking:


Ok Thanks! Just made it smaller and worked!!


My cover was approved but every time I try to select it doesn’t go…


It will show when your story is published. :slight_smile:


what do u mean?
I need to select it and then click that button "update"


Yes, you need to publish or update your story to set the cover live.

Hi! A little help here!

So I was searching in google for extra backgrounds, I found images of Episode Hidden Backgrounds.
Can I upload it and use it in my story? Because I can’t find it at the writer’s portal backgrounds. Just wondering if I can upload it as MY UPLOAD BACKGROUNDS.

Thanks Much! :slight_smile:


Of course you can :blush: we all using them :smiley:


awe, thanks! :slight_smile:

Hi , I created my own looping background of a college campus. BUT it’s not working on my story.
'Cause I want my characters to have a dramatic entrance. How do I properly do it? I thought I made the right thing,

(Oh and P.S. I already tried the looping background that the episode has but when I uploaded my own, it doesn’t work. Or is it just like that? Lol i’m confused.)


You can’t upload your own looping background. You can choose from what episode has (they have loop in the name) or make your own using overlay and loop command
