What’s a Rich Text element?



The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

“We ordered the shrimp bucket and a Rueben with fries along with a beer. I'm obsessed with the peel and shrimp bucket and I get it every single time. It's about $12, but it comes with a lot of shrimp! Their reuben was good and the fries were crispy. Our total for the entire meal was about $30 which isn't horrible. The service was good and I'd be back!” - Yelp Review

“What a neat little tavern in the heart of Dublin.   I highly recommend the Irish Egg Rolls.  They were crispy, fresh and amazing.   I had a pub burger with deep fried bacon and it was huge, cut it in half and it is plenty for two people.   The meal arrived at lightning speed.  The server was kind and attentive.” - Yelp Review
