Creating Components with HTML and CSS

Components for Setka Editor are made two ways:
  • In the Editor itself. To do this, build up the element and save it using the Component button in the right-hand panel. More on it in this article.
  • In the CDSM. It can be used to turn any HTML code into a component. This is useful if the standard features of the Editor are not enough. E.g. additional decoration or some specific structure is needed.
Any valid HTML code can be used as a component. The code also utilizes the standard Setka Editor elements: grids, columns, paragraphs, galleries, and images. They must contain the appropriate CSS classes. You can use your own classes in addition to the standard ones.
Follow the guidelines below to create valid components that will be accepted by the Editor.
A component can consist of the following elements:

Post

The main container of any Setka Editor publication.

HTML Structure

<div class="stk-post">

<p><!-- paragraph content --></p>
<h2 class="stk-theme_XXXX__style_large_header">
<!-- heading H2 -->

Deleting components

The component in an article is presented as static HTML code. In most cases, deleting a component from the style wouldn't affect the pages it was used on.

Components with custom CSS

Delete components with custom CSS carefully. Make sure other components and style elements do not rely on this component's CSS rules defined in the Custom CSS for component field.
If you need to delete the component that contains custom CSS, copy the content of the Custom CSS for component field and add it into your style's custom CSS.
