Setka Editor Plugin for WordPress

Once you install Setka Editor Plugin you can work with it in WordPress. You can use pre-made post styles or create your own with the Style Editor tool.

 

How Setka Post Editor, Style Manager and the Grid Systems are connected?

Post Styles and Grid Systems settings are delivered as files from your editor.setka.io account to WordPress (or another CMS) and applied in Setka Post Editor.

 

What are Grids?

Grid system (or Grids) is a system for organizing layout elements (text, headings, illustrations). Grids organize these elements and ensure the overall design of the post is maintained.

 

What is a post style?

A post style is a uniform design for all your publications including fonts, heading types, text and background colors, indents, dividers, icons and snippets.

Create your custom post style in Style Manager at editor.setka.io. Apply it in Setka Post Editor when making new posts through WordPress.

The Post Style determines the way your post looks, but you can always modify it in Editor.  Select between various header sizes, play around with text colors, add animation and apply other visual effects.

Manage built-in Setka styles and your own custom styles in the Styles section at editor.setka.io:

Can I delete a post style?

To ensure that old posts do not lose their appearance or layout, styles can't be deleted. Hovewer, you can disable unnecessary styles to have them removed from the Setka Editor Plugin. Click on a cogwheel to disable the selected style.

When creating new posts, the disabled style will not appear in the list. Disabled styles in already published posts can still be edited in Setka Editor.
