Make a magazine or book
Working together in Jilster
Once you've clicked on the link in your invitation e-mail and logged in (or registered) you can click on 'Accept' to get started working on the magazine you've been invited to.
Click on 'EDIT PAGE' to open the editor and start creating your page
We recommend doing this as often as possible. Jilster does not have an autosave option.
Once you've handed in the page you can no longer edit it, unless you ask the chief-editor (the person who invited you) to release the page back to you so you can edit it.
Handing in the page saves it to our servers in high quality, so it takes some time.
If you need any help, we recommend contacting the chief-editor first (the person who invited you). However, feel free to contact us if there is anything we can do. We're happy to help!
You’ve been invited as an editor
I received an invitation to edit but I can’t see the magazine?
It is possible you’ve create an account with a different e-mail than the e-mail an invitation was sent to. Ask de editor-in-chief to invite you again using the e-mail you used to create an account.
Alternatively the cause may be that your invitation has expired. Ask the editor-in-chief to send another invitation.
What happens when I hand in my page?
Once you’ve completed your page you can hand it in to the editor-in-chief of the magazine. You will no longer be able to edit your page once you’ve handed it in.
The editor-in-chief can only place an order once all the pages have been handed in.
Edit a page after handing it in? Ask the editor-in-chief to release the page to you so you can go back to being able to edit the page.
I have ‘handed in’ a page, but would like to make some changes. How can I go back to editing the page?
Once you’ve handed in your page you can no longer edit it. However, you can continue editing it by asking your editor-in-chief to ‘release’ the page for you.
As editor-in-chief you can edit pages at all times, even pages that have been handed in or published. Once you’ve made changes to a page you’ll have to publish it once again.
How do I solve the issue of a white screen in the editing room?
