Page builder for Posts – Setka Editor


The time of plain text posts are over. You need content that reflects your brand, stands out, engages your audience and converts them as quickly as possible. But how do you efficiently design high-impact content experiences, without wasting money on developers and designers?

Setka Editor was born to answer this very question. We have created a robust plugin accessible to everyone looking to make unique post layouts without having to deal with CSS or HTML. Setka Editor is the first WYSIWYG plugin with page builder functionality. Its sole purpose is to create beautiful posts as efficiently as possible.

Setka Editor was 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.

I installed and activated this plugin on 19 Sep 2019 and then was no longer able to load the admin dashboard. I only saw a blank screen instead. I could still visit the website itself. But to fix this I had to use FTP to rename the setka editor plugin. As soon as I did that I could view/use the admin dashboard again.

There's a lot of promise here, but still work to be done. The free version is somewhat limited, but so are my needs so I was optimistic. I took it through some real-world tasks, only to find several aggravating issues and a final deal-breaker for me. First the deal-breaker: The free version is limited to a single grid system, which is understandable. But the grid can't be edited once it's created – you can only delete the settings and thereby lose all the formatting for posts that were formatted with those settings. So, for example, if you decide that you'd rather have 8 columns instead of 6, you essentially start over with the free version (the paid version allows multiple grid systems, so this isn't a problem if you pay). There are probably a number of fair reasons for this lack of editing ability, but in the end it means the free version is very inflexible, and you will essentially be painting yourself into a corner by using it. For me, that far outweighs any advantages this plugin provides (and there are many). Other aggravations included a remote settings page (on the Setka site) to set defaults for a style. Again, this is somewhat understandable but cumbersome. In operation, the undo function is nice but unpredictable, as are some of the basic layout controls. Paragraph blocks could sometimes not be deleted and dividers would sometimes disappear. The documentation mentions controls that aren't available, and eventually I felt like I was fighting the plugin after awhile just to try to get it to function as it should. I ended up editing the html and css time and again to adjust things, at which point the whole purpose of the plugin is defeated. There's a lot of promise here, and I love the idea of an easy, universal visual editor for posts. But as of this review I'm afraid the free version just isn't ready for a production environment. And the most affordable paid version is cost-prohibitive for most small businesses. I'll definitely keep an eye on this, but for now I'll be deleting it.

1.16.1 – September 18, 2018

Improved compatibility with AMP WP plugin in ‘Paired’ mode.

1.16.0 – August 6, 2018

Now, we have integrated Setka Editor plugin with the AMP WP plugin. When installed on the same website they automatically increase the loading speed for mobile pages while retaining stylistic and branding elements.

We make it work with all three modes in the AMP WP plugin:

— ‘Classic’ offers a ready-made template for the theme and allows the Google bot to index the pages of the site as soon as the plugin is installed.;
— ‘Paired’ assumes that the owner of the website or the creator of the theme has created separate templates for AMP and other versions of the website.;
— ‘Native’ is seamless integration, where the website is created specifically for AMP, and there is no need to create separate links, templates, and so on.

We wrote four sanitizers for elements that weren’t compatible with AMP notations and created smaller files for styling elements that are in line with the design demands.

  1. The animation sanitizer converts Setka Editor animations into AMP animations, while keeping any interactive features like activation on a specific user action or movement of elements.
  2. The embed element sanitizer transform a responsive embed into relevant AMP elements and correctly integrates them into the page.
  3. The gallery sanitizer transforms the component for displaying a series of images into the relevant AMP element.
  4. The image sanitizer displays the srcset attribute with all available resolutions, allowing the browser to decide which size is best for the user. This makes loading images faster and allows content to adapt to a device’s screen size.

So that clients can set up themes for displaying content, Setka created the Style manager.
