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

(And One Million Boys came...)

the helicopter dances in the air

àkàrà balls fry in a pan

every eye watches

hovering with a storm of questions

last month,

Mama Bola's àkàrà pan upturned

on the burnished body of an area boy

who hugged karma by the roadside


we all dance daily too

when the Ceasers come knocking for a pay:

-a 70-plus grandmother grabs her money bowl

-a feverish boy jerks into temporal sanity

-a father kisses his iron rod & storms out

the helicopter dances in the air

àkàrà balls fry in a pan


mother earth dances in the dark

gulping our worries in tiny droplets
