Post Templates

All about creating, applying, and editing post layout templates in Setka Editor.

Post Templates

Save your post as a template for future use. Post templates could save you time if you are regularly creating content with similar structure and design elements. Like components, post templates save time when creating new content.

How do Templates work?

When you save a post as a Template, you save its layout, structure, content, and style elements.

When creating a new post, you can create choose from saved templates. Your style and layout grid will automatically update after you have selected a template.

Depending on the chosen template, you may only need to change the content to complete the post.

How to save a post as a template?

To save your post as a template, switch to the Post tab on the Upper Contextual Toolbar and click Save as template under the Templates section. Once it's named and saved, you can use this template when creating new posts in the same style.

How to apply a Template?

When you create a new post, you will be prompted to select a template. The options displayed will consist of your previously saved templates or a blank post. To change the template, open the Post tab and click Show templates under the Templates section.

Please note that if you decide to switch to a different template while creating content in another template, you will lose the content (unfortunately, you will have to start over).

Why do Templates contain placeholders instead of original images?

You can't currently save images as a part of a template. We've designed post templates to help users reproduce post/page layouts faster. Because using the same pictures in different posts is rarely required, at this point, we think it's not something many users need. When you save a template, Setka substitutes all the images with placeholders to keep your post structure intact.

Edit/Delete Templates in Content Design System Manager (CDSM)

You can see and edit your post template HTML-code in Content Design System Manager. To do that, please open the Style where this template belongs to in the Content Design System Manager. Then click the Templates tab on the left side of the screen. Here you can rename or delete the template and edit its code.
