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.

Narrated by

A lonely girl sits in front of her apartment, weeping

The caterpillar transforms into a butterfly

Another heart, miles away, breaking

Glasses clink, a toast

The war was born today

Candle procession, black linen

An entire village, now a memory

Turning on the hot water


Getting stung by biting

Cold showers

Lokoja, Nigeria

A flutter of waves beat through the moonlit night

Lovers slip in and out of each other's skin,


Cold hands slid down your pants on a public bus

Warm blood, leaving crimson on the seats

A lonely girl stood by the microwave and wept

She put the cake in with the foil wrapping

"I love you forever", words

Spoken so freely without discourse

"There's love in every corner, you just have to untie your blindfold and look"


You are only alive because god willed you to be

Who would have thought?

Was I consulted before he wrote his will?

"There's peace that transcends heartbreak, the one that heals you


"Never call me again"

Did you not know foil paper caught fire in microwaves?
