Snippets

What is a snippet?

A snippet is a template with formatting elements that can be used in one or several posts. Layouts for specific content such as quotes, author’s name and photo, event cards or numbered lists can be saved for future use. Snippets speed-up the layout process as these design elements are available to you instantly.

Similarly, you can also save the whole post as a template.

Here is an example of a “quote” snippet as the most frequently used element in any article:

How do I add a snippet?

To create a snippet, select the desired paragraph (of elements you would like to save) and click the snippets icon in the vertical right hand toolbar. Click add snippet, give the snippet a name and save.

Saved snippets will appear in this bar for you to insert into existing or future posts in this style. To upload them, select a paragraph and click the snippets icon. Your snippet names will be displayed for you to choose.

Snippets can also be added from the Style Manager, but you will have to apply CSS from scratch.

You can learn how to combine various elements and create your snippet in Style Manager here.

Group snippets according to their type

When creating snippets you can save them in named folders in the snippets toolbar. Create new groups or choose from existing ones to determine where the snippet will be saved. This helps navigation to desired snippets easier when uploading. You can also search for specific snippets in the snippets search bar.

To access your snippet’s HTML-code, login to editor.setka.io select your Post Style and click on the snippets tab on the left of the screen.

Some of my snippets are inactive. What does this mean?

Snippets can only be uploaded in the Post Style in which they were created. If you have made significant changes to your Post Style, your original snippets may not be compatible with the new style. In this case you will not be able to upload them from the snippets toolbar. To avoid potential issues, remember to save significant changes made to your Post Style as copies.
