Post Style

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

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

How to create a new style?

Login to editor.setka.io.

A new style can be added in your Style Editor (Styles > Create custom style). New style will be in Draft until you activate it with Publish button. You can't create new posts using a new style unless it is active.

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 it in the drop-down menu in the section with styles (Styles > ▼ > Set as default).

Why would you need different post style?

For each post type you might choose to use a different post style. You can create several styles for different editorial formats: for example, each section may have a specific style.  

What happens if I change a style?

If you decided to change your post style by deleting elements or making significant changes to text formats, save the changes as a duplicate (Save > Save style as a duplicate) to avoid damaging old posts that use this style. Pre-made styles can’t be edited, and changes to them can’t be saved, you can only create a copy of them.

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 in which these styles were used will not change immediately. The delay depends on the settings for updating the style cache on your server.

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 the columns. 
  • Deleting icons. As an example, if your post used numerical icons, after deletion your post logic might be lost. 
  • Deleting dividers. If you delete a divider for quotations, it will be unclear to readers that this text is the direct speech of an expert.

How does style editing influence the posts created with this style? 

If you have edited a style and saved it, the changes apply to all existing posts with this style.

How to save a post style?

At this time, Style Manager has no autosave function. Therefore, always click Save after making any changes.

How to delete a post style?

Styles can’t be deleted, because old posts would lose their appearance and layout. Unnecessary styles can be disabled to make them disappear from Setka Editor.

How to disable a post style? 

To disable a style, click Styles > ▼ > Disable on the Styles page.

When creating new posts, the disabled styles will not appear in the list, but if the post was initially created in a disabled styles, the post can be edited in this style.

Can I re-name post styles?

You can change the names of styles that you named. Names of pre-made styles can’t be changed.

Can I use custom CSS to change styles?

Yes, you can. In order to do this, click the Custom CSS link at the bottom of the 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 always need 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.
