I'm just starting to explore Story Maps.  I would like some information on the Story Map "Seven Wonder: The Ancient World" located at Seven Wonders: The Ancient List .  There's also the Seven Wonders: the New List at Seven Wonders: The New List  which I discovered only by following a link at the bottom of the text describing the 7th wonder.   

Q1: When I'm viewing the story map is there a creator attribution field where I can see who created it in order to give appropriate credit?   I think these were both created by the Esri Story Map Team, but I don't see that anywhere.  How can I determine that information?

Q2: Also, were these two story maps created using one of the Story Map templates, and if so, which template?  I scrolled through the gallery of examples to find an example like it, but don't see anything quite like it with 2 fixed panels on the left-hand side, where the lower panel can be clicked forward and back < > to proceed in sequence. Which template should be used to produce that effect?  

Thanks,

Mia

Hi Mia

Regarding attribution for Story Map authorship, we treat that as part of the editorial and branding of the story. So for example in the header of Story Maps a logo can be included, and authors can optionally include text in their content with additional authorship info or credits. The Story Map Cascade app template has a formal Credits section at the end too. 

To find the actual owner info for a particular story, see if there are any usage constraints, see how many times it has been viewed, find other stories by the same author, leave a comment or suggestion for an author, etc, you can search ArcGIS Online to find the entry for the story. The item details entry for any Story Map, other web app, map or data layer will show you the owner name and you can click on their profile to find out more. So here's a search that fishes out one of the Map Tours you mention above:
https://www.arcgis.com/home/search.html?q=%22Seven%20Wonders%3A%20The%20Ancient%20List%22&t=content&... 

and you can click on that entry to find out more: https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=dc6b73b9993741d891793c113d5ac7e7 

Both of those tours were created by the Esri Story Maps team.

To speed up the search process, if a Story Map has an 'app-id' in its URL, like this one does:
https://apl.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/index.html?appid=862af890c7ff49bd89402a53cea0e362 

you can copy that ID and paste it into the ArcGIS Online search, preceded by 'id' to go directly that the entry for that story:
https://www.arcgis.com/home/search.html?q=id%3A862af890c7ff49bd89402a53cea0e362&t=content&start=1&so... 

That saves you doing a search on the item title, which might return several search results because it takes you directly to that specified item. This method works for any item in ArcGIS Online with an ID, not just Story Maps.

(The two Story Map Tours you reference above don't have an app-id in their URL because the authors hosted the source code on their own server, but if you want to get the specific appID of the Story Map being displayed via that self-hosted code, you can view the source code and look for the appid line in the source code).

Hope that helps

Answering my own question!  Found the template in Story Map Tour.  

What about an attribution tag of some type?    I don't see where to identify the creator of the ones in the gallery.

Ok, thanks, I hadn't viewed the Item Details page for web applications -  very helpful. I'll check out the Cascade credits too.
