Creating and editing post styles

A Style is a set of design elements and formats that define the look and feel of the post. It can include fonts, headers, text and background colors, dividers, icons and snippets.

You can create unique Post Styles for different types of content. This flexibility is especially important when it comes to sponsored content.

What is the default style?

When you click “Add New Post” in the editor, this style is selected by default. If you want to set another style as the default, select Styles in the Style Manager and choose which Post Style you would like to be the default style.


Do I need a different post style?

Your post styles include a number of design elements specific to that style. For each post type, you may want to consider a different style.


What happens if I change a style?

Any changes made to a Post Style will be applied to all posts made in this style. If you decide to delete elements or make significant changes, save the changes as a duplicate (Save > Duplicate style) to avoid damaging old posts that use this style.

If you haven't deleted anything or made significant changes you can save the changes in the same post style without affecting your published posts.

After updating the styles in the Style Manager, the old posts using these styles will not change immediately. The delay depends on the settings for updating the style cache on your server.

Pre-made styles can’t be edited, and changes to them can’t be saved. If you want to edit these styles, create a copy by clicking > ▼ > duplicate in the desired Post Style box.





Examples of post style changes that could negatively impact already published posts: 

  • Significant changes to the font size. As a result some words might not fit in the columns.
  • Deleting icons. For example, if you delete numerical icons, your post's structure might be lost.
  • Deleting dividers. For example, if you delete dividers for quotations, it will be unclear that this text is direct speech.


How do I save a post style?

Can I delete a post style?

How to disable a post style?

Can I use custom CSS to change styles?

Yes, you can. In order to do this, click the Custom CSS link in the bottom left panel of the Style Manager. In the pop-up window you can enter the CSS-code.

This function is required if you want to apply additional properties to style elements (for example, if you want to add quotes before the text in the Small Text format). By default, a check mark is enabled at the bottom of the window, which applies the written styles only for the post content. If you disable it, the styles will be applied to the entire page of the post, including the WordPress system elements.
