Setka

Setka Editor empowers editorial teams to unlock the true potential of digital design. It allows for creativity and efficiency in the hands of editors and designers while remaining a controlled, safe, seamlessly integrated and scalable technology.

Customize design without coding

A look at Setka Editor within WordPress

Setka Editor allows content teams to create unique layouts that perfectly fit each story without having to code. It also allows you to customize your design elements so your brand style can shine through.

This means more beautiful articles with less stress, and more time for the developers to focus on important tasks. Design features include:

  • Grids: Structure your content better, dramatically improve readability and gain perfect control over every element on your page in just a few seconds with the grid system.
  • Interactive design: Easily add a level of interactivity and increase the time readers spend with your content. Add animation, anchors or full width and background images on the fly to make your posts more engaging.
  • Alignment and Indents: Easily set your content’s horizontal and vertical alignment and indents.
  • 100% customizable inline icons library: Upload and adjust your icons library, edit colors. When used icons adjust to the font sizing.
Setka Editor allows users to customize design details without coding a thing.
  • Post styles: Define your post’s style in our Style Manager. Determine your text formats and fonts, choose colors and create dividers. Make as many post styles as you like.
  • Reusable templates and design elements: Create and save post templates and reusable design elements at the click of a button.
  • More freedom with typography: Choose from hundreds of Google Fonts, connect your Adobe TypeKit or upload your own custom fonts.
  • Seamless production process: Setka Editor wants to make design easier, not get in your way. That’s why we’ve made our tool to work within your editorial and technical processes. We do this by providing:
  • True WYSIWYG: When designing an article you see exactly how it will look when published. Press tab to instantly see both desktop and mobile versions in preview.
  • Team collaboration and rights management: Everything you need to work effectively as a team is included. Add multiple users to your post, set user rights and communicate through comments.
  • Extra customization through code: Don’t worry developers—you’ve still got the power. If our grids, fonts, animations, post styles, layouts, templates and snippets aren’t enough and you want to customize further, Setka Editor enables you to easily add custom CSS and alter HTML within the post and within any of your reusable design elements.

Gutenberg Ready

Already running Gutenberg? The Setka Editor content block is now available.

Setka Editor is among the first plugins ready for the release of WordPress 5.0, which includes the new Gutenberg editor. We have developed a Setka Editor content block, which can be used with any other blocks on your page.

Designed to work at scale

We know the capabilities necessary for a plugin to work for a digital publisher — we were born out of one! The initial Setka Editor prototype was designed within an online media company and developed to work at scale. Using Setka Editor, the same company today creates 2000+ posts per month and receives 7 million monthly visitors. We’ve also tested it with over 900 international brands of all sizes.

Google AMP ready

The Setka Editor pairs seamlessly with the AMP for WordPress plugin to generate eye-catching Accelerated Mobile Pages. All Setka Editor design elements—like animations, slideshows, etc.—remain the same on Accelerated Mobile Pages or are transformed to fit within AMP’s capabilities. These features work with all AMP plugin template modes: Classic Mode (where you use default WordPress AMP-ready themes to generate Accelerated Mobile Pages) and new Paired and Native modes (where you customise your own WordPress theme or use a native, already AMP-ready, theme).

Clean, SEO-friendly code

Setka’s code is set up for faster load times.

Setka Editor is focused on proper code structure in line with HTML5 standards. Unlike PageBuilders, working within post content allows for a lower level of nesting (which means faster loading times).

Setka Editor properly uses header tags and supports input of alt text for all your images. It is compatible with Yoast and other WordPress SEO plugins.

Outputs however you need them

Setka Editor organizes data using a tree-like structure. Each content element (paragraph, picture, grid, etc.) is represented as an object with its own properties and connections to other elements. This means your pages aren’t tied to HTML output, and can be exported in any necessary format, including JSON and other formats.

Beautiful content, even if you uninstall

Never lose your designs, even if you leave Setka.

We don’t want to lock you in (although we hope you’ll stay!). Everything is saved as HTML code in your database. CSS files can be stored on your side or be delivered from Setka Editor CDN. This means that if you decide to uninstall the plugin you will still be able to connect style files to posts that are saved on your server, maintaining both the content itself and its stunning design.

Responsive layout for mobile screens

Designs are automatically responsive for mobile devices.

You will never have to worry about being mobile-friendly again. Setka Editor automatically adapts your post design for mobile and autoscaled images. If you would like to further customize it, you can choose mobile layout options or set specific text formats and fonts for tablet and mobile. Preview your post instantly to see what they will look like on different devices.

Export your layouts anywhere using the cloud

Design Cloud is a Setka Editor tool, which helps to design beautiful posts and export them in HTML to any third-party site or advertising platforms.

Setup:

  1. Get the Setka Editor subscription to access the Style Manager and obtain a license key.

  4. Enter your license key.

AMP Project

The AMP Project is an open-source initiative aiming to make the web better for all. AMP enables web experiences that are consistently fast, beautiful and high-performing across distribution platforms. AMP formerly stood for “Accelerated Mobile Pages”, but now works completely across desktop and mobile. The official AMP plugin for WordPress supports fully integrated AMP publishing for WordPress sites, with robust capabilities and granular publisher controls.

Features and capabilities provided by the plugin include:

  • AMP-first Experiences: enabling full-site AMP experiences without sacrificing the flexibility of the platform or the fidelity of content.
  • Core Theme Support: enabling AMP compatibility for all core themes, from Twenty Ten all the way through Twenty Nineteen.
  • Compatibility Tool: when automatic conversion of markup to AMP is not possible, debug AMP validation errors with detailed information including the invalid markup and the specific components responsible on site (e.g theme, plugin, embed); validation errors are shown contextually with their respective blocks in the editor.
  • CSS Tree Shaking: automatically remove the majority of unused CSS to bring the total under AMP’s 50KB limit; when the total after tree shaking is still over this limit, prioritization is used so that the all-important theme stylesheet important is retained, leaving less important ones to be excluded (e.g. print styles).
  • ✨ AMP Stories (beta): the AMP plugin enables the creation, editing, and publishing of AMP Stories in WordPress; leverage the magic of storytelling the WordPress way!

The plugin can be configured to follow one of three different template modes: Standard, Transitional, and Reader. In Standard mode you use AMP as the framework for your site, and there need not be any separate AMP and non-AMP versions. When configured to operate in Reader and Transitional modes, a given page will have a canonical URL as well as a corresponding (paired) AMP URL. The AMP plugin is not serving as a mobile theme; it does not redirect mobile devices to the AMP version. Instead, the AMP version is served to mobile visitors when they find the content on platforms such as Twitter, Pinterest, Google Search, and others. Reader mode only supports serving AMP for singular posts, pages, and other post types, whereas Standard and Transitional mode support serving the entire site as AMP.

With the official AMP plugin for WordPress, the WordPress ecosystem is provided with the capabilities and tools it needs to build world-class AMP experiences without deviating from its standard, flexible, and well-known content creation workflow.
