    Here’s documentation on Aesop Story Engine:

    Theme Implementation

    It’s important to know that the plugin only produces very basic CSS for the components. The theme is responsible for making the components appear different ways. For this reason, the Timeline and Chapter components may not function as intended. Refer to your themes documentation to see if it fully supports Aesop.

    Theme authors and developers will find documentation covering everything from the markup that is generated, to actions, filters, and instructions for full Aesop integration here:


    All components are pluggable, and there are ample filters and actions to manipulate just about everything you can imagine. Refer to the documentation for more:

    If you think something is missing, we want to hear from you.


    Aesop Story Engine is currently available in 36 languages. We work closely with the folks over at WP-Translations, and it’s because of them that these translations are available. You’re welcome to jump in.
